Desserts are in my DNA. I love a sweet treat. As a recent cancer survivor I know I should be diminishing sugar intake, but after going through treatment, there’s a fine line between enjoying a certain quality of life and the realities of post-chemo health recommendations. After all, I could no easier stop eating cookies, […]
Mike’s Mini Mart isn’t your usual mini mart in Kahului. One of the first things you’ll notice is the magnificent aroma of baking cookies. Next you’ll notice the rows of cookies among the stand-up coolers housing sodas, juices and energy drinks. In fact, all of the shelves are dedicated to the Maui Manjookies, a product that […]
It’s early on a chilly Makawao morning, but I’ve come Upcountry to participate in ritual that stretches back a century: waiting in line on Baldwin Avenue to get into Komoda’s Bakery. It’s a holiday tradition for me, and many more on Maui. One hundred years of Komoda’s. It’s hard to believe, but at the same time, not hard to […]
My morning coffee habit has lately been getting tempted and tested by lots of new delicious pastries at Wailuku Coffee Company. Coconut chocolate chip scones, Nutella cheesecakes, gluten-free berry lemon muffins, vegan whoopie pie, brie foccacia, herbed popovers, blueberry crumble and fudgey brownies. There’s a whole new selection of goodies everyday. I had to figure […]

Best Local Pizza Fabiani’s This year, our readers decided that Maui’s very best pizza comes from Fabiani’s in Kihei. It only took a year for this family-owned restaurant to move up from their getting named as last year’s best new restaurant to this year’s best pizza. Their thin crust Italian American artisan pizza starts with […]
I baked my first cookie when I was 10. By the time I was in high school I was making choux pastry and eclairs just for shits and giggles while my sisters and I stayed up late watching whatever came on the 12 TV channels that were available back then. I’ve been making my grandmother’s […]
If you’ve ever done the late night run to the Kanemitsu Bakery for hot, fresh bread you might be devastated by the Department of Health’s recent shutting down of the establishment. Back in March, the bakery was hit with a $90,000 penalty for unsanitary conditions, which owner George Kanemitsu had been appealing. But a June […]
The partnership between Megan Childers and Jackie Goring extends beyond their business, these two ladies and dreamers that created the Wailuku Coffee Company. Like most small local business owners they have had to grow with the demands of customers, their original concept to supply Wailuku with affordable food when they opened two years ago […]
At first, the people who live in the Lipoa area of Kihei weren’t all that keen to have a new restaurant and bar open in the South Maui Center. The relatively recent opening and closing of the old Kiwi Roadhouse in the same space didn’t help; that place’s bar fights and dark interior were hardly […]
