One of my favorite bakeries on the north shore of Kauai is the Kilauea Bakery. Nestled in the courtyard of the Kong Lung Shopping center, it is a perfect stop before or after your trip to the Kilauea Lighthouse.
For breakfast, the Kilauea Bakery has a wide selection of Hawaiian style Danish and French pastries. Choose from lilikoi, guava, coconut, chocolate or cinnamon croissants, scones, or eclairs. Their macadamia nut sticky buns are a local favorite. Or, have a toasted fresh bagel with one of their specialty spreads (olive tapenade, sun-dried tomato pesto, salmon cream cheese, ulu (breadfruit) hummus, artichoke blue cheese) for a savory choice. The breakfast stromboli, fritatta or ham cheddar rolls are other options from which to choose.
This photo was taken at about 11:00 after many of the pasties had already been bought, but you get the idea.
From 10:30 AM to 9:00 PM, Kilauea Bakery offers limited lunch & dinner choices. The specialty pizzas are unique. They are made with a semolina crust, or a gluten free crust made with local breadfruit for an additional $2.95. All meats are natural. Here are a few examples:
Kilauea Bakery’s Gluten Fee Menu:
Seven Seed Ulu (breadfruit) Bread
12″ Medium Ulu Pizza Crust
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Apple Banana Walnut Muffin
Coconut & Guava Macaroons (see photo above)
Kilauea Bakery’s Specialty Layer Cakes – Pre-order, pick up the next day, made without egg or dairy products:

It goes without saying that Kilauea Bakery also has a wide selection of breads and dinner rolls for purchase, as well as a full service espresso bar with organically grown coffee.

So, if you are heading south from Princeville, drop by the Kilauea Bakery and enjoy a treat. Be sure to save a little time for shopping at
as well as other stores at the Kong Lung Market Center.
If you are heading north, not to worry, the Hanalei Bread Company in Hanalei is just as good!
