Good food!

Breakfast is good. I would like to see a complete overhaul of the inside... but that is part of the charm of Molokai. People will eat here because the food is good, not for the atmosphere. The great secret is the hot fresh bread that you can get in the back ally after 7:30pm or so... looks shady... read more

Anyone visiting Molokai must take the time to visit Kanemitsu Bakery. After the sun goes down, there is not much to do on this island, which is one reason I love it here, and on the way back to whatever accommodations you are staying at you must go down the side street and then the alley to the backdoor of...

Ate there 2 times. Food was the best we had on the island, service not so much. Ordered a spinach and mushroom omelette the first time and got some bakery to take home. Onion bread was fabulous! Ordered the same the second visit and she brought one that included ham, onions, tomatoes, peppers. I tell her that I thought it... More

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.
