We stopped by in the morning based upon reviews. The pastries were average, and the coffee was... nothing special. Probably the restaurant side is better, or the hot bread at night.

The bakery items are decent but only if you get there before all the flies. The restaurant on the other hand is terrible. The service is disorganized, the food absolutely sucks, and the place has no pride in the food they turn out. We've come...More

After whale watching you must come here to eat breakfast. The waffles & french toast are great but my favorite is the corned beef hash!

We did not eat in the restaurant but bought the bread in the alley. It was delicious and we ran into a few acquaintances in the alley. Overall, a very good experience.

Stepping back into time. Families coming in for breakfast and oh so delicious breads and pastries. Note...do not buy just one loaf of bread. It was gone in a second.

When we were on Maui, people said you must get the hot Molokai bread. We got the butter, cinnamon and cream cheese - ate 1/2 of it on the way home. They have been making it for 90+ years!
