Yummy

This is a land mark place to eat. We bought baked goods several times and everything was delicious and fresh.

You have to have breakfast here it is the best in my book in the world. Their bread baked fresh is to die for. At night when it gets dark you can walk up the alley to the back door and buy a fresh hot loaf of bread with whatever topping you want on it. Fantastic experience a must do.

quality in breads. nice to stay. an old place, clean and nice. very charming. giving the idea of the old time good breakfast with perfeckt ripe papaia very simple and warm.if you expect a restaurant, this is not. It is the kitchen of a large old family where your ohana (family ) are taking care of you.

Kanemitsu Bakery has been a landmark in Kaunakakai, Molokai for generations. Their Molokai Bread is known around the world and their pastries are excellent. The food in the restaurant is good and it is a meeting place for many locals and visitors alike, yet the atmosphere sucks to put it mildly. It is the most unattractive setting I can remember...

We arrived on the island and dropped into the main town to get the lay of the land and pick up A few groceries. We stopped into the bakery and visited with the store keeper, she told us to come back tonight for the 'bread line'. We asked 'what'? She said at 7:30 walk down the alley at the right... More

All we bought there was pastry, but it was terrific. As a rule, Moloka'i is not known for its fine cuisine, but this place has baked goods as delectable as any I've tasted anywhere. Too bad they don't serve prime rib.

The were served plate-lunch style with white rice and macaroni salad. All of the food was good except the macaroni salad. It was revolting with an... More

Open early with freshly baked breads and pastries. Quite yummy. Although almost all items have coconut in them and if you're like my husband who doesn't care for the texture, it's a very limited selection.

We liked all of the baked goods we purchased especially the coconut turnover. But the real star is the hot bread. Don't miss it!!! You can go as early as 7:30pm. Walk in the alley behind the bakery you will see the bright light. The back door is open with a menu board. We ordered a loaf of hot bread... More
