This little restaurant has great food and a great view of Hanalei! The location of the Hanalei Bread Company is where Hanalei Coffee Roasters used to be. We love to come here and enjoy breakfast after beach runs on Hanalei Bay. They have a lot of delicious hot, cold, and blended drinks to enjoy on any type of day. Hanalei Bread Company gives you the options to maintain a healthy diet, but there are also a lot of yummy treats that one must indulge on!
