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

I stayed for a week on Molokai and bought a loaf of bread EVERYDAY. This is seriously the best bread you'll ever eat in your life! Its a must go to type of place when staying on Molokai!

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

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.
