“Delicious with a dash of rudeness...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

While on the main island we were so busy sight seeing that we failed to have a legendary malasada. So once here in Maui we decided to do some research on where to get our little hot L.A hands on some. We even went to the local market to ask locals where to find some. Surprisingly, malasadas are popular on the main island and most of the people here make them at home. Well after speaking to many locals we finally found out about The Bakery. In a nutshell, small hidden location, front counter lady had a dash of rudeness to her but in all, the raspberry malasada was to die for!!! Oh man, they're huge so I only got one. I'm willing to deal with the rude lady for another. Lol.

After reading reviews and hearing locals talk about this place we were excited about trying this. However, from the time we drove up to the time we questioned what we were thinking. Very disappointing, expensive and little selection.

“Not a hidden Gem”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Just Bad. Not worth going to. No selection....if you want something special go to the Komoda Bakery in Makawa but make sure to get there before 9 am if you want anything they sell out fast. Try the donut on the stick or apple turnovers

“Throw your diet to the wind”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

What a gem of a find, got to try the cronut - filled with jam and custard, French toast is yummmmmmy. Great selection but you have to go early to get all the good stuff. The purple taro root buns had an interesting taste...All stuff is always fresh - no regrets.

Not much to look at..inside or out..but pastries to die for! It's in a bit of a tucked away location. We found it using handheld GPS. It was worth looking for. We bought several different types of donuts and enjoyed every crumb! Beware..it's CASH ONLY..so don't go in expecting to use your credit card!
