“try our delicately sweet and moist Hawaiian sweetbread”
Located on the Big Island, midway between Kailua-Kona and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Punalu'u Bake Shop & Visitor Center is a welcome oasis for travelers. Awaiting you on our beautifully landscaped 4-acre tropical estate, are free samples of our famous Hawaiian Sweetbread. Enjoy our Ka'u Coffee, Malasadas, Anpans and other bakery treats. Refresh yourself with our ice cream, delicious sandwiches, plate lunches, fresh salads and much more. Introduced to Hawai’i by Portuguese sugar workers during the 19th century, sweetbread has become a time-honored favorite among residents and visitors alike.

To keep visitors and kama’aina supplied with this popular favorite, the Punalu’u Bake Shop was opened in 1991.
