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,

The specialty is sweet bread sold after 7:30pm from the back door. Lunch was ok and waiter was friendly. I would eat here again.

Bread is amazing as other reviewers say. We had cinnamon and raisin. Really nice. Restaurant - we had breakfast plate. I had poached eggs bacon toast. It was good. Eggs were good consistency. Husband had the same but sunny side up and has Browns. I won. Hash brown was slightly insipid and eggs sunny side up were undercooked. I think... More

Situated along the main drag in Kaunakakai, Kanemitsu's is an old style family bakery-what it lacks in frills they more than make up for in taste and array of products. You can order hot bread the night before and pick it up in the early morning hours. They sell a handful of different breads all day long and three types... More

Town was dead at 5:15am but at 5:30 was waking up and it seemed everyone was popping in to get their morning coffee and roll. Coconut pastry was wonderful. Good assortment. Evening we went... More

Great little bakery, seems like one kind of dough, but they make several types of rolls with it. Cinnamon rolls and custard rolls are to die for. Breads and other pastries are good also. Limited hours and they usually sell out by closing. On an island with not much happening, this is a very good stop.
