“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. Our delicately sweet and moist Hawaiian sweetbread at Punalu’u Bake Shop originated from a traditional family recipe. When the recipe was adapted and prepared at a resort restaurant in Punalu’u (Ka’u District on the Big Island of Hawaii) in the 1970s, the sweetbread was an instant hit. To keep visitors and kama’aina supplied with this popular favorite, the Punalu’u Bake Shop was opened in 1991.

This malasada shop is to-die-for! Malasada's are like donuts...but on crack. Seriously, I could probably live on them. Read more

Great “pit stop” on our way from Papakōlea Beach to Punaluu beach. Bathrooms were clean, staff was friendly, and food was very reasonably priced! Read more
