Fantastic bread in several varieties. Carbs be damned.Don't forget to get the Butternut or Oatmeal Raisin cookies. Sigh!

One stop that is a must is the Molokai Hot Bread!! Always served behind the bakery in the alley. While not too many outsiders know about this it is a great product of the Island of Molokai. Fresh Molokai French bread that is filled with fillings of choice from Cream Cheese, Butter, Cinnamon, Strawberry, and or Blackberry. Always worth the... More

Had dinner with my husband last night. The roasted duck and beef short ribs were excellent. We picked up some rolls for breakfast and they are great.

Not a whole lot to do in Molokai- but don't miss the "famous" hot bread! A huge sweet round of white bread served hot with your choice of sweet toppings. I had "creme cheese" and blueberry and was not disappointed in this super sweet treat! One hot bread is definitely enough for 4+ adults, I had mine for dessert, breakfast... More

The cinnamon bred, cinnamon with apple etc. I try almost everything. But the 'hot bread' is the no.1 Try also the danish or custard, hmmm. Also a favourit of me :-) Starting... More

OK- it's totally unhealthy, full of gluten, warm and slathered in cream cheese and strawberry jam, but there was no way to stop eating it. The loaf was HUGE- more than enough for four hungry people. Getting the hot bread is an adventure- anyone in town can point you to the alley, which is a little sketchy, but it's Molokai,... More

This is really more than just a bakery. They also have tables with service where you can get a full breakfast. They serve both Hawaiian style food and western style. Staff is very pleasant and the portions are generous.
