Fun place to visit on the Road to Hana tour. Lucked out on the day that I was there. They had bread in the oven and if you didn't want to wait they were giving away the day old bread. Just as good!

We looked forward to this pit stop during our rain filled Hana Highway trip and it did not disappoint. IThe bread was warm and flavorful. They were busy but the service was fast. There are a couple tables of tables to sit and eat.

We’ve been buying banana bread all over Maui. Aunty Sarah’s wins hands down. It uses Maui bananas which has a much more intense flavor than the traditional cavendish banana. It does not use molasses. The small village of Ke’eane is a bit more than half...way from the airport to Hana along the windy road to Hana. It has a great volcanic coast line. The banana bread and the sight is well worth the tripMore

Do not buy just one loaf of this fresh from the oven warm banana bread! I bought some on the way to Hana and stopped again to buy some on the way back. A bit off the road by maybe 1/4 mile. Take your bread...and coffee and continue on the little road about another 1/4 mile for the most incredible coastline ever!! Offering Banana bread and other snacks. Picnic table available!More

What a surprise to find hot banana bread on the road to Hana. It was the best I've ever tasted and it saved us on the long flight to Seattle without food.

On the road to Hana, this little stand/stop is at a prime location. When headed to see the volcanic pools at the end of Keanae Peninsula, you can find this place serving the most perfectly baked banana bread. Best of all for me, no nuts...(allergic)! So rare for me to find baked goods without nuts especially in a place where they're abundant(macadamia nuts, almonds, etc). For two people, we split one banana bread (small portion, not standard size) and one smoothie which was just right. A few picnic bench seats and parking area accommodated the travelers that passed through. Wish I could go back and experience it again already!!More

Excellent place to stop. It’s 1/2 way to Hana. Great Banaba bread and we devoured a Kalua Pork sandwich. Great pork sauce and onions made for a tasty lunch break. They also sell other sandwiches and smoothies etc. a must stop!!!

A great place to stop and get a small, warm loaf of very moist banana break. So very good! If I wasn't in the area, I would not drive out of the way to go but well worth the stop!

We loved the bread so much, we brought back extra as gifts for our friends. The main store is just a little off of Hana Hwy, but if you don't have time to get to this location, they have a smaller store right across from...Costco by the Airport. The bread is served warm and the loaves are the perfect size to share between two people. The bread tastes like banana and not sugar which is perfect for me.More

I don't think so. I don't even think you can buy her bread anywhere else in Maui, except her stand. It really is best hot from the oven.

I doubt it. It’s a tiny, mom and pop place where you walk up to the counter to place your order and then eat at outside picnic tables. They had a handful of food items on the menu but don’t remember anything vegan or... More

I’m thinking it’s cash only. It’s a pretty remote location.
