Terrific local bakery

I saw this bakery on the online cooking show Sam's Live Cast with Sam The Cooking Guy. I came in here and was surprised how small the bakery is (across the road from Kauai Community College). Lots of local residents coming and going with their baked goods. By the time I got in here at 9:30 am, most... read more

After eating here a few times I know the food is not healthy. However if that's your thing then experience it , it's local. :)

I love stopping in at Hanalima when I am in the neighborhood. I have a weakness for morning treats but they also make a great birthday cake. ( yum) thanks for the happy birthday!

We stopped by to pick up some pastries for a treat and found a a very good choice, freshly made and reasonably priced. Cookies, pastry turnovers, cinnamon buns all came home with us ! Delish!

We came at breakfast time and tried the egg and cheese quesadilla which was nothing special but to be fair, it was just an egg and cheese quesadilla. We also purchased several malasadas which my husband and children thought were delicious, though it was not my favorite. Each to their own. This is a very simple small bakery that is... More

This is a must stop for all bakery lovers. I really liked thier cherry roll, flying saucer, ham and cheese bun, and their cinnamon rolls are top notch. This is the bakery to get your cinnamon roll. But I was too late to get a pork bun. I got there before 9 but already sold out. You should probably try... More

Hanalima is delightful! Go early - they often sell out of the pastries by mid-morning. They also serve breakfasts and delicious burgers and sandwiches at lunch time. What you may not know is that they make really beautiful custom cakes.

Just had one of the best loco moco ever. They come in 3 different sizes and the small is perfect for $5 when you order a couple malasada with it. Tons of other small snack food that is delicious. Big menu little shop. Take out only but so worth the stop. Never looks busy bc it's like a revolving door.... More
