Although we never did get the hot bread out back in the alley, we did stop in one afternoon for some baked goods. We got 4 different goodies and they were all delicious! They were all a type of doughnut, but the dough was unlike any I've ever had and that's a good thing. Very soft, fluffy, and a bit... More

This place is a bit hard to find. It is down a dark alley and you have to go there around 8:00 pm or later. It is actually the back entrance to the store front bakery. We checked it out during the day and knew where to go...it is so worth it! Hot fresh bread filled with a variety of... More

We seemed to be the only tourists when we got in line for hot bread around 9:30 p.m. one night. The experience of going to a back door through the alley to buy hot bread slathered with cream cheese and jam was uniquely Molokai. The bread was fluffy and warm. And we heated it up for breakfast the following morning,... More

Dirty windows. Dirty floors. Dirty walls and ceilings. Flies in the baked foods display cases. Un-friendly staff.

When we pulled up, it seemed so-so looking, but cars were all around, so all the locals go here also..... Very good bakery, and a place for breakfast....

We bought three different breads here but none would we rate above average. The ingredients didn't't seem particularly high quality either. Sorry! Not sure why the store is so highly rated.

No preservatives but full of taste and local aloha. Arrive early for the best selection. They will take orders for you to pick up and ship yourself. (Need to get to destination in 3 days which is expensive.) They do not ship but that is not an issue. Our only regret is not eating at the small diner within the... More

This is the place I always wanted to visit after reading so many good reviews. We went Kanemitsu for a breakfast, a lunch and the hot bread (!) at night. The food they serve is very nice and the bread is nice, too. My son loved their bread so much, and he ate a lot. The famous hot bread was... More
