view web site ›'s insider take:

It was a tiny shack that put the little town of Honokaa on the map with its irresistible malassadas (fried dough balls rolled in sugar). Now it's a factory and full-on tourist trap complete with a visitors center and garden center, but the supersize malassadas (you now have the option of enhancements like Bavarian cream or guava jam on the inside) are still worth their weight in gold. One word for the rest of the menu: Don't. It's an ideal place to stop when driving along the Hamakua Coast from one side of the island to the other.

Open daily 6:30 am to 8 pm.
