Fodor's Review

Billed as the southernmost bakery in the United States, it's a good spot to grab a snack, and the heavenly smell alone is worth the stop. Try the new house favorite, lilikoi-glazed malasadas (Portuguese doughnuts)—sweet with a touch of tart. (Be forewarned: one is never enough.) Local-style plate lunches and sandwiches on the bakeshop's famous sweetbread buns go well with Kau coffee. That's right, not Kona, but equally tasty.
