Had breakfast here, as well as carry-out of baked goods. The breakfast was wonderful, great loco-moco, fried rice and eggs, and eggs and Molokai bread. Carried out Molokai bread, both sweet and standard, an item not to be missed when on Molokai. We used the Molokai bread for all our meals back at our place, just loved it! We didn't... More

Whatever you do don't miss it. Order French Toast for breakfast and you'll be off to a good start. The menu is local diner and the... More

A fixture in Kaunakakai....we always stop at Kanemitzu first...to see what temptations they have to offer for the day. They're closed on Tuesdays so keep that in mind for when you need to buy sweet bread for the trip home. They also serve standard breakfast fare. The staff is always friendly.

We read about the "Hot Bread" that happens in the late evening after the bakery closes. They have an alley that runs two doors to the right of the bakery building and then turns left back into a narrow type alleyway between two buildings. You go to the end turn left again, and there is a hand printed sign advertising... More

You have to try this bakery. The best bread ever. Went for breakfast as well and were not disappointed. Try the hot bread at around 7 p.m.

Took a chance and queued up in a line for about 20 mins to get some of their breads on a weekend night...we also stopped in during the morning one day to grab some stuff for a day trip to west end.

Ecclectic mix of desserts and breads. They sell day olds as well. The bread is what they are famous for and if they are sold out, get the buns,
