Located on Ala Malama Avenue in the center of Kaunakakai on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, Kanemitsu Bakery serves a wide range of breads and pastries. In business for more than 80 years, Kanemitsu Bakery is most famous for its late-night "hot breads," which are served with a choice of butter, jelly, cinnamon, sugar or cream cheese. The bakery became known for its hot bread since these were sold out of the bakery’s back door late into the night. The hot bread, which takes the shape of split-open loaves and served with the toppings listed above, is sometimes referred to as "pillowy loaf.”
In addition to its most famous product, the bakery offers a number of other breads and pastries. Other fare for sale includes Fresh Bread, Papaya Bread, Molokai Hot Bread, Butter Cream Bread, Cinnamon Rolls and Doughnuts. The bakery also serves hot coffees, omelets and other breakfast items. Kanemitsu Bakery prides itself on its bread-making facilities and for only using fresh ingredients for baking. The bakery believes that this, along with careful attention to quality and excellence, is what makes their bread so irresistible. Undoubtedly, the aroma of hot and newly-baked bread is a great temptation for those who go past the bakery or are in its vicinity.
