I don’t know about you, but for me Tasty Crust holds a bit of nostalgia. When I was a young girl I didn’t quite understand the fascination, but my grandpa led me to see that Tasty Crusts’ pancakes are truly divine. “Hot cakes” (as he called them) were his absolute favorite food. And his pick for the best was Tasty Crust. I have many a fond memory of my grandpa’s smile while eating a Tasty Crust pancake. In fact, it’s the same smile you can see today on the face of anyone enjoying the same pleasure. 1770 Mill St., Wailuku, 244-0845.
