“Great Bread with a twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is the most fun we had at a bakery. Let me explain, this bakery bakes bread late in the evening and starts selling it between 8 and 10pm behind the actual store. I know, I was a little skeptical too but you go down the side alley behind the store and there is a window where you can get freshly baked bread with all kinds of yummy stuff on top. The toppings include cinnamon and butter or cream cheese, strawberry and butter or cream cheese, berries and etc. the list goes on. What an adventure and they also are a regular bakery in the normal hours of the day, enjoy.

“What is the fuss about?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We read all kinds of reviews raving about the bread. It's an average bakery, at best, and while I am sure the hot bread you get at a back door at night is lovely, what warm bread isn't lovely? From anywhere???

“The place was filthy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

If you like clean, avoid this place. Flies were all over the walls, the tables, in the baked goods cabinets, and in the air. I looked further back in the building (while still in the dining room) and could see a dog walking around in the far back part of the building where the bakery ovens are. The table service was unfriendly and very slow. I could not eat the food that was eventually served to us because of the flies, the dog, and the bad smell in the air. I will never go back to this place.

Surprisingly, this place has a good reputation among the locals who live on Molokai. Go figure.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Stopped here after asking a local for a good breakfast place. Service was ok, breakfast selection was good and tasty. Lots of people coming in for bread and pastries.

Great fresh bread after 10 pm...walk down a lighted alley to the back of the bakery and get fresh hot bread with a variety of toppings...huge loaf for $7 and we got cream cheese and cinnamon sugar..,yummy!! Ate it on the sidewalk out front. Fun evening activity cause not a lot of nightlife in Molokai!
