Kamehameha Bakery

I'm not a big donut/cake/chocolate or anything-sweet-kinda person. However, after trying these babies at a family party, I have never looked back. Kamehameha Bakery is located on North King Street, and is very hard to spot. Located in a very old building (and I don't even know if they have a sign), there is also a small parking lot to park in. They are open from 2am-4am, so if you're ever craving a donut in the middle of the night or hungry after a night of partying, this is your place. This Glazed Taro Donut is unlike any other donut. For one, it is a dark brown color. At first sight, many might look at it and not find it pleasing to the eye, but please please give it a try; your taste buds will definitely be pleased! The dough is ultra soft, and the sweetness of the bun plus the flaky glaze isn't overpowering at all. Such a nice, light mix. Plus, as you take a bite, you'll find the inner dough is a bright purple color! 

I often buy a dozen for parties, and they are a huge hit! Remember to call in and preorder these babies as they sell out quick. I usually go in to pick up my order around noon, and no taro donuts are on display! All sold! At 70 cents a piece, it's such a deal! Now I've only tried these Taro Donuts, but have heard their Banana bread is popular as well as their regular donuts. I also have a creamy danish waiting for me as well as a slice of banana bread. I couldn't resist! Will have to update you on how they taste, but I'm sure it is delectable. Anything from this place is irresistible. Such a gem this place is!

Gotta keep up with the who's winning the Manoa Cup!
Banana bread was utterly moist and spongy,
while the danish was moist, soft and had a creamy sweet center.
I'd still stick to the Taro donuts though!!
