The Best Little Bakeshop In America Is Right Here In Hawaii

The Hawaiian Islands are famous for their unique food you won’t find anywhere else in the world: and while we absolutely adore loco mocos and Spam musubi as much as the next person, our pastries are seriously second to none. From Hawaiian sweetbread to the famous malasada, there’s little better than the baked goods you’ll find in Hawaii – especially if you head to Hawaii Island’s Punalu’u Bake Shop.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Punalu’u Bake Shop is located on Hawaii Route 11 in Naalehu and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Love malasadas but don’t have the ability to make the trek to the southern tip of Hawaii Island? Check out Leonard’s Bakery – who introduced Hawaii to the malasada in the 1950s – or any of these 11 bakeries.
