“Great banana bread and warm, friendly people”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We stopped here in both directions on the Road to Hana. Yes, get the loaf of banana bread...you won't be disappointed. They even give you a knife to slice it. Such beautiful people, too!

“Banana bread is excellent, but skip the hot dogs and burgers”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We stopped here on the way to Hana on a recent Tuesday because we were hungry and most of the other roadside stands were closed. We got a hot dog, a cheeseburger, drinks and a small loaf of the famous banana bread. The banana bread definitely lives up to the hype. It's moist and delicious, even 5 days later back at home. I would skip the hot dog and the cheeseburger next time though. Hot dog had a greenish tint to it and was very mushy. The burger patty had been precooked and just reheated with the cheese on it. There are porta-lets near the picnic tables, but I saw someone go over, open the door, and then refuse to go inside, so I didn't even bother.

“Stop for banana bread and pineapple!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We stopped here both ways on the Road to Hana and back for some cut pineapple and for banana bread. The food was excellent and it just adds more fun and deliciousness to the experience! It is also good to stop multiple times on the Road to Hana to let the driver rest, so this is a good stopping place.

“Great place to stop on the Road to Hana”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Since doing the "Road to Hana" is a day long excursion, this is a great little place to stop to refresh, use the restroom, and buy some Banana Bread! Just a nice little treat. You really can use a break from the 617 curves. There are a few other places, but what the heck, with a name like this, "Halfway to Hana" made sense to us. Having read some other reviews, we regret we didn't try the shaved ice.
