As the crowd of pro surfers and North Shore hippies inside indicates, this is where the locals go - and for good reason: everything at Baked On Maui is made on site. Stop in for a nitro coffee and croissant before starting out on the two-hour Road to Hana drive, or plan to walk off their face-sized, lilikoi-icing-glazed cinnamon rolls in the nearby beachside town of Paia. Our favorite dishes are the pepper goat cheese breakfast sandwich on house-made focaccia and the puputeine skillet (fries topped with homemade pepper gravy and cheddar cheese in a cast iron pan). There’s also a solid smoothie, sandwich, and salad selection for lunch before or after a hike and swim at Twin Falls, just up the road.
