We bought 2 types of cookies which were great. The loaf of coconut bread was amazing. Then you must go to the back alley of the bakery after 7:30 pm to buy their bread. They are open until midnight in the alley and you choose which spread you want in the middle - cream cheese, cinnamon and butter, jams, etc.... More

When we were on Maui, people said you must get the hot Molokai bread. We got the butter, cinnamon and cream cheese - ate 1/2 of it on the way home. They have been making it for 90+ years!

Best food on Molokai as far as we are cocerned. It is a little local bakery run by a family that offers baked goods and breakfast and lunch. The food was plentiful and very good. Nice variety. Not your fast food place, it has friendly service and decent prices.

If my friends and I could give this place a 10/5 we would. Their warm bread is absolutely to die for and no surprise that it's fairly well-renowned. A single loaf can easily feed four people - but if you're like us - one loaf each is also a good idea. The Cinnamon-Butter-Cream cheese is easily the best combination of... More

Stopped by in the evening for the Molokai bread experience. Head down the alley to the far right and get warm bread with your choice of toppings. We had butter and cinnamon. We don't eat bread usually so it was a fun treat. Peanut butter cookie with chocolate chips and Mac nuts were the highlight of our treats here

Party of six had a very good meal. The waiter was very good with an excellent attitude. The bakery was the highlight of the meal, they sold us fresh bread that was very good.

Party of six and everyone thought the food was excellent. The French toast is made with bread made at their bakery and is very good. Service was excellent

Read about this before our trip and then heard more about it from the locals. After eating at Molokai Pizza a server told us how to find the alley...about two stores down (to the right when facing the bakery) is the alley to the back of the bakery. You walk a short distance then on the left you'll see the... More

The banana pancakes with coconut syrup made my day. Inexpensive compared to other restaurants around Molokai.

I can only speak about the bread, as that was the main reason to visit. I do not understand the hype about this bread. It is a large, bland loaf of white bread. Perhaps, that's why they slather on gobs of condiments (your choice of butter, jam, etc. for an additional cost). A possible redeeming factor: it's warm--fresh from the... More
