I heard great reviews about this bakery especially the passion fruit. I got 2 different pastries and found both were dry. I remarked to a friend and they said that's the special fought they use. I guess other people love it, not for me

This little hole in the wall was suggested by locals, and it was DELICIOUS. They have savory and sweet delights. You must go early because once they are sold out for the day, they close. There is a great juice bar next door too!

First, be sure to arrive early. Bakery only open Monday-Friday 6am-1pm. The first time we visited was about 1230p...practically nothing left to choose from. We decided to make a concerted effort to visit again before we left the island. Due to other recommendations, we decided to try crab roll and ham & cheese. Mediocre. Brownie was great! Staff is nonchalant.... More

Stopped here for a quick breakfast. I had the crab roll....to die for! Hubby had the ham and cheese and said it was amazing too. We also had the blueberry roll and my mouth is still watering as I write this. Amazing. We will go back again before we leave!

Everything here is awesome. We visited 4 times in one week. Crab rolls, pizza rolls, ham and cheese rolls are perfect little take along snacks. The pumpkin crunch is to die for, it barely made it out of the parking lot and it was gone. Try everything and you wont be disappointed. Well worth the drive from Kapaa just to... More

Average bland breakfast burrito, freezing cold overpriced fried rice? With nothing but rice & 4 pieces of tiny meat. Rude gentleman working the counter. My son accidentally dropped a box of 21 cookies 1 broke. 1.They asked me to pay for them. Interesting considering they forgot to charge me for something and I quickly told them, yet that courtesy does... More

I found out about this bakery by Googling “Kauai bakeries” during my vacation, so we decide to stop by. The owners were not as welcoming as most of the smaller stores in Kauai. Then, we found out they're not local; they're from Seal Beach, California! Because of the reviews, we got a savory crab roll, and ham & cheese roll... More
