Good option for Breakfast

This is really more than just a bakery. They also have tables with service where you can get a full breakfast. They serve both Hawaiian style food and western style. Staff is very pleasant and the portions are generous.

We got a loaf of the hot bread with butter and cinnamon the previous night(which was fresh if not that tasty) and decided to try their breakfast expecting some fresh baked goodies. The breakfast menu does not feature any baked items, so we ordered the standard eggs, bacon and potatoes which was not as good as we are used to... More

As you may have read online, this place has a [not-so-]secret night-time operation selling delicious loaves of hot bread from a window in the back of the bakery. Go down the small street to the right of the bakery and you'll see an alleyway with picnic tables. At the end of the alley is the window selling the bread. Each... More

We have been to Moloka'i twice now and had made friends the 1st time with some locals. We figured if we went to Kanemitsu we would find them again, and sure enough, we found them all there at one time or another! We went here every day for 6 days just to socialize with the natives and ended up making... More

As we had arrived at our condo later in the evening we drove into Kuanakakai to have breakfast and buy our groceries the next morning. We were told the bakery is a good place for not just bakery items but food as well. We had a filling breakfast and I loved the corned beef hash I had. (Note: If you... More

This bakery has good baked goods. We went twice, first on Sunday, afternoon, they didn't have a lot of products but we purchased a doughnut and some macadamia nut cookies and both were good. Monday afternoon we went and bought some wonderful "French" bread. It looked different but we made garlic bread out of it and it was great. Then... More

We were there on Dec 31. We asked for bread--we wanted it sliced but the girl at the counter said she was alone, and did not want to go to the back room where the slicer machine was. She also apologized because the bread is usually baked at night, but this bread was baked one hour before we came!! No... More

Stay up late while you're on Molokai and look at the stars, then stop by here for their famous hot bread, slathered with whatever you like. It is a fun experience and the bread is SO good. We went twice at night, as well as getting daytime treats for our adventures. (Friday night was a lot busier than in the... More

We read in our guidebook that their fresh evening bread was roughly equivalent to crack cocaine in terms of addictiveness. So we showed up (along with a crowd) around 9pm and waited. It took a while - the power kept going out and they were a bit late getting started - but it felt like an adventure nonetheless. I will... More
