We have been to Maui a number of times, but had never made it to Komoda's Bakery. We will now never miss a chance to go! Traveling with our friends who had seen an article in their mainland paper about Komoda's we decided it was a must do. On arriving in Makawao (a really cool old town), we were not sure how to locate it. As luck would have it, we parked just down the street from the entrance. As I walked by the door, the heavenly smell of pastries and bread drew me into the place - and we all spent the next several minutes oohing and ahhing over the lovely goodies.
The article had specifically mentioned cream puffs. We left with a box of a dozen cream puffs, six chocolate and six vanilla - THREE each! While we did spread them out over the next three days, we were all making SURE that everyone only got THREE! They were so delicious! It was actually a good thing they Komoda family was taking a family vacation two days later or we would have all ended up on a diet of cream puffs! We also took home a dozen rolls which were absolutely delicious.
The ladies working in the store were the sweetest, beautiful ladies. It's a must return for us!! The old town and just as old store lent a charming, homey feel to our visit, and the cream puffs - well - you will have to try them yourself!!!
