As soon as we landed, we were told to go order your loaf of bread and pick it up the next morning. They steered us right! Man!! What great bread! we ordered strawberry bread for snacks. So Good!! Not for someone trying to lose weight. Addictive and soooo Good!!

Ok, this is the only bakery on Molokai, and they are pretty good! I love their cream cheese butter rolls, long johns, bear claws, guri guri roll, and especially their HOT BREAD!! The best Molokai Bread! It is a must to get hot bread at night!! You get a whole loaf of bread oozing with yummy spreads like blueberry, strawberry,... More

Stood in line for some fresh hot backed bread with specialty fillings, jam-jelly with butter, blue and stawberry with cream cheeze, cinimon butter or plain. Large vewing window for waiting local and mainland visitors. A must stop for Molokai visits.

I was told to try the Back Alley Bread here. Apparently, it is also called Molokai Bread. You can only get it in the back alley and starting at 7:30pm every night except Monday nights. It's a fun experience and the bread really is delicious! The Taro donuts are really good too.

I wanted to try the hot bread thing at night but hubby didn't want to eat all those carbs so late. We did stop by for cookies and they were, unfortunately, really average. So the review is only based on the cookies. Other food might be better.

Everyone said we had to try the sweet bread - so we did! Good coffee and some of the breads were tasty. The service was friendly, but busy elsewhere. The flies were really bothersome, though.

The people working behind the counter are so nice, however the bakery is dirty. The cases where the fresh baked food is stored for sale needs a good washing. Flies are in the food cases and on the unsold baked goods. I've been on island a couple months and wouldn't consider buying a donut there.

Had the fried rice and eggs. Thumbs up. Wife had the cheese omelet (we think they used sliced packaged cheese old school style) We understand why but wish they used shredded cheese or more of it. The omelet was ok bu the side of bacon was good. We also did the hot bread run at night. Word of advice, you... More
