Molokai Pizza Café A must-eat on the island is the Molokai Pizza Café in Kaunakakai. A wonderful gathering place for friends and family, the café – an island staple – is a local favorite. The best-selling pies are the Molokai (pepperoni and cheese), the Big Island (pepperoni, ham, mushroom, Italian sausage, bacon and vegetables) and the Molokini (plain cheese). If pizza isn’t your thing, feel free to dive into the very popular barbecue baby back rib plate, gourmet hamburgers or fresh fish dinners.
Kanemitsu Bakery This 80 year old bakery is famous for its hot bread served from the back door of the building late at night. Around 10 p.m., residents and visitors make their way down the dimly lit alleyway for a Molokai tradition: fresh hot loaves of bread filled with jelly, cream cheese, butter, cinnamon or sugar. Talk story with the residents who will tell you tales of their first memories of visiting the back door of the bakery, back when they were 7 years old and the loaves cost $.50.
