This place is definitely an experience. When we walked into the storefront we were told to go around to the back alley for hot bread. There was a line and we waited awhile, but I noticed the two orders in front had 100s of loaves (no joke!). Once those orders were filled, everything moved quickly. The bread is $7 for... More

Came here for dinner and for breakfast. Dinner was alright, breakfast was excellent. Their pastries are definitely top-notch. No complaints about the service. Obviously a popular spot.

I went there once at night (a little after 8pm) to buy the bread everyone talks about. You have to talk down an alley, next to the store front, and on the left-hand side, there is a door with a window. You order your bread with one or two toppings for $7 ($1 more for additional toppings). I got the... More

We were excited not because of breakfast we got there, although it was good, but because of the overall atmosphere. This place is popular among local Hawaiian and expats and they probably meet there regularly in the morning. They warm excitement, while they were greeting their family members and friends, was contageous. It was a great start of a great... More

The bread is only offered on certain nights, ask anyone and they'll let you know. You have to go down the alley to order and get your bread. You have a choice of 2 toppings included in the price but can add more. We got the butter and cinnamon, went back and asked to double it. It was delicious! We... More

I felt like I was in a spy novel.....first you wait until dark. Then you walk down this tiny, dark and deserted alley. Then you turn left at the opening and walk back until you see a list of bread prices and an ordering window. This is where the fun starts! We first tried a hot bread with just cinnamon.... More

Located on the main street in Kuanakakai. Take out or dine in. Good size with an old fashion glass case to view the pastries and cakes. Everything looked pretty much the same to us...extra big, heavy and dry. The 2 pastries we tried were not very good. We left most of them. This is the place that has the hot... More

Great fresh baked breads. A must-do is their hot bread service from the back alley. This place has been in business forever.

Stopped here on my first day on Moloka'i. I was pleasantly surprised as I thought Kanemitsu's was just a bakery. However, they do full food service for breakfast and lunch. For breakfast, I had the French Toast, and it was exceptional. Perhaps the best French Toast I've ever had! I enjoyed every bite! My friend had a Spanish omelette and... More
