This is a must stop for all bakery lovers. I really liked thier cherry roll, flying saucer, ham and cheese bun, and their cinnamon rolls are top notch. This is the bakery to get your cinnamon roll. But I was too late to get a pork bun. I got there before 9 but already sold out. You should probably try... More

Hanalima is delightful! Go early - they often sell out of the pastries by mid-morning. They also serve breakfasts and delicious burgers and sandwiches at lunch time. What you may not know is that they make really beautiful custom cakes.

Just had one of the best loco moco ever. They come in 3 different sizes and the small is perfect for $5 when you order a couple malasada with it. Tons of other small snack food that is delicious. Big menu little shop. Take out only but so worth the stop. Never looks busy bc it's like a revolving door.... More

After horrible experience and food at Sweet Marie's Bakery, was so glad to find this place! Food was super! But you better get there early as they were out of cinnamon rolls, but upon showing up next day earlier-it was worth it! Took them on our island tour! You've got to try this place!

I'm a bit of a Hanalima addict and can't even count the number of times I've been disappointed to realize I've shown up too late and they're either closed or out of what I want. Show up early! My personal favorites are the cinnamon rolls, fried rice with Portuguese sausage, breakfast burrito, and grilled cheese sandwich with bacon. And their... More

At the strong suggestion of a local woman in line, I tried a breakfast burrito with fried rice. I know,,,so many carbs! but your on vacation and there is... More
