Stopped in to get a bite. Ordered a half salad which was local produce, farm fresh and more than enough. We also ordered a panini, which was absolutely double delicious! They serve organic, grass fed beef. The coconut bread is to die for! Reasonable prices. Would eat here over Bamboo anytime.

Beware if you are considering ordering a wedding cake from Maria. I ordered a 2 tier cake for my Hawaiian wedding in Nov. It was beautiful! But the cake itself was HORRIBLE! The butter cake was extremely dry and tasted a month old…it was not fresh. I paid $$$ for this cake and I expected it to be of highest quality. When I contacted Maria she did not respond. Guess she was laughing all the way to the bank! I signed a contract and paid extra for green sugar leaves this was on a contract… but the leaves were NOT on the cake! Good luck to all the brides if you choose to order from Maria. The cake will be pretty minus a few details...but will not be fresh! Go to Costco!

This is the best place, but it isn't a super cheap - well worth it though! The 'real' food looked good, but I just had the desserts. Fresh orange juice is sometimes available and definitely worth it. The lilikoi bars (passion fruit) bars are amazing. If you like chocolate, you will love the kohala crunch bars. I didn't have a chance to try out the mac nut buns, but they look fantastic. The best selection is earlier in the day, but they don't open until 9am. The woman who does the pastries also makes amazing looking bday, specialty, and wedding cakes.
