“Rodents!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We pride ourselves on finding out of the way places where locals go. We went here to get fresh malasadas and while we were waiting for our order a large rat ran in by the counter and then back into the kitchen area. I know the lady at the counter saw it and didn't say a thing. They have two other locations that are newer that might be rodent-free and the baked goods looked yummy but we lost our appetite when Ratatouille waltzed through.

“Delicious Manju pastries filled with coconut for takeaway lunch!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We ate delicious Manju pastries filled with coconut and adzuki beans.

We heard that the sandwiches were fresh and yummy too but we didn't sample them.

Good place to stop on route to the Ioa Needle. Try to go early for the best selection.

“A real gem!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here twice for lunch--what a find! HUGE wraps or sandwiches--choose your own meats, veggies, bread, cheeses, condiments--all for an incredibly reasonable price!
They also have a nice selection of malasadas (Portuguese filled doughnuts) and Pacific-rim pastries.
This is definitely a restaurant that has a lot of local and tourist business and seems to be run by very sweet ladies who work really hard to accommodate all. You can either dine in or take out.
We will return!

“Malasadas”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Love the fresh out of the fryer Malasadas. Crisp on the outside and warm, fluffy on the inside. A great cheap breakfast!! They only bake it up fresh during certain hours of the day so be sure to check their website for times.

“Taro rolls, mochi and malasadas... OK”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Looked for Home Maid Bakery because of a TripAdvisor forum recommendation for taro bread. They only had taro rolls at the time, so we snagged a dozen, as well as hot malasadas and some tropical flavors of mochi.

All items were pretty good, but not the best we've had. The taro rolls were lacking in sweetness, as were the mochi (!), and the malasadas were not as fluffy and soft as I'd had (even at our Maui hotel).

Overall, I liked the experience -- the staff were all friendly and helpful -- and the prices were good.
