Kanemitsu Bakery is situated in what one could describe as downtown Kaunakakai. I grew up on Oahu so this setting is rather nostalgaic for me. The wooden double doors with screens, the concrete slab floors and Formica tables all are rarely found in the Islands any more. Kanemitsu effortlessly serves authentic local fare that I recall fondly from the 70s... More

My gf and I stopped here for breakfast and were not disappointed. I had the french toast with 3 slices of freshly baked Kanemitsu bread with 2 strips of bacon. It was served with guava syrup and coconut syrup, which were both outstanding! My gf had scrambled eggs with Portuguese sausage (i tried one: delicious!) and fresh bread. Be sure... More

Not your typical bakery experience! It's called "The Bread Run"! The bakery opens at 6pm each night to bake bread and then starts selling it around 8pm. You have to walk down the side alley to the back of the bakery where you come to a split door with a sign that lists all the flavors you can get on... More

What can I say...we eat the whole loaf! HIGHLY recommended! Go at 8 PM to the back door when the bread is fresh & hot. We were the first customers of the night. The owner so friendly and inviting. LOVED this place. I would suggest "The Works". You will need napkins!!! Do not miss this!

If the Open lite is on at 830pm, go around to the back door and get your loaf right out of the oven. It's a must do Molokai experience.

I'm reviewing for both the restaurant and the evening hot bread. The food at the restaurant its self could create an oil spill as most of its food oozes out all the oil thats used to cook it. The service is great though The evening hot bread which you access from a street adjacent to the bakery and enter a... More

We only had the hot bread at 9pm. We ordered one cinnamon/sugar and butter, and the other blueberries and cream cheese. The size was giant. For 2 people 1 is more than enough. But being it was our first time we didt know. The freshly baked loaf is sliced and slathered with up to 2 flavors of your choice. It... More
