Kanemitsu Bakery is more than a bakery, and has a little restaurant too. Fun, friendly staff. I had plate lunches on two different days that were very good. Teriyaki Chicken and then the best Honey Dipt Chicken, both of course with a scoop of white rice and a scoop of Mac salad = plate lunch. I got a fresh loaf... More

We had breakfast one morning, and it was a little greasy, but the pastries are outstanding! Croissants, turnovers, cookies.

This restaurant serves a great meal, and the baking is to die for! Order the half loaf in the evenings around the back of the bakery - its enough to serve an army and you will be hooked!

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

There was a day when guidebook writers didn't have much to chose from on Molokai. Kanemitsu's was right there on the short, short list. This island institution is the home of Molokai Sweet Bread. 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.
