“Yummy Portugese Doughnuts”
Reviewed July 26, 2009

Good Portugese doughnuts! Get there before 10 am if you want any. Or call in an order ahead of time. Not much else to go there for. Crab rolls--just imitation crab--kind of a disappointment. Service was excellent, staff friendly. Would go again!

“Makes my mouth sing!”
Reviewed October 28, 2008

As the Hawaiians say, this place "broke da mouf", meaning it tastes very good, and that's an understatement. This is a very small bakery that's actually in Puhi, not Lihue, and is big on taste. Our ohana stopped by for some morning treats and came away so impressed, we stopped by the morning of our flight to grab some pastries for the flight home. I especially enjoyed the cherry turnovers and cherry rolls. My other family members enjoyed the apple and coconut turnovers and rolls, and the malassadas (like a beignet or zeppole). They also sell their own bread and many other island-style pastries. Stop by and bring your sweet tooth, and you certainly won't be disappointed!

“Most Fantastic”
Reviewed October 17, 2008

Like everyone else I recommend going early. We tried the turnovers (both coconut and cherry), cherry and apple sticky buns and got a loaf of sweetbread. All of it was wonderful and we can't wait to go back. The staff was really friendly and the worst part was making a decision. We cut everthing up in quarters so we could share and try it all.

“Stop by and give it a try....”
Reviewed October 13, 2008

First of all, this place has no seating --- so plan accordingly.

We stopped by and picked up a Portugese Sausage "roll", some cookies, and a sweet roll. All were good, and at a reasonable price (for Kauai). If you try anything, do the Portugese Sausage roll/danish, as it was something I had not tried before -- and was very good!

“We love this place”
Reviewed July 22, 2008

We stumbled onto this bakery 5 years ago and went back 2 weeks ago. All the baked goods are great!. We stayed in Kauai for 10 days and went to the bakery 6 of them. Great airplane food. Get some before you leave. Breakfast burritos are really good. Get there early. By 10:30 the stuff is gone and they ain't makin no more. Say Hi to Tammy. Aloha
