A must do! Walk down the alley after 730pm and order your bread. Kids lived the experience as did I.

Not only is this the best bakery in all of Hawaii, the midnight bread run is a great experience. Kids and adults all enjoyed it, twice! A must do in Moloka'i.

Such a fun place for lunch.....wide range of choices...including saimin. The wait staff is friendly. I think we were the only visitors from off-island so the place oozed with local colour.

Love the bakery, the pastries are really delicious. Giving it 4 stars vs 5 only because there were limited options, but what we did have was 5 star. Must stop here anytime you're in Molokai

The bread is amazing. Fantastic treat!! Fun to go get it late at night (only time you can go get the loaf of bread smeared in cream cheese, jam, or butter. A must each time we visit Molokai.

Not for the carb counter! Submit to your cravings. The evening offering of their specialty bread can carry you over a few days if you can keep it cool.

Kanemitsu Bakery is more than a bakery, and has a little restaurant too. Fun, friendly staff. I had plate lunches on two different days that were very good. Teriyaki Chicken and then the best Honey Dipt Chicken, both of course with a scoop of white rice and a scoop of Mac salad = plate lunch. I got a fresh loaf... More

We had breakfast one morning, and it was a little greasy, but the pastries are outstanding! Croissants, turnovers, cookies.

This restaurant serves a great meal, and the baking is to die for! Order the half loaf in the evenings around the back of the bakery - its enough to serve an army and you will be hooked!

Had breakfast here, as well as carry-out of baked goods. The breakfast was wonderful, great loco-moco, fried rice and eggs, and eggs and Molokai bread. Carried out Molokai bread, both sweet and standard, an item not to be missed when on Molokai. We used the Molokai bread for all our meals back at our place, just loved it! We didn't... More
