Komoda Store and Bakery in Makawao Maui is 100 years old

Everyone in Makawao and Upcountry Maui knows about Komoda Store and Bakery.  This year marks their 100th anniversary of serving the public.  They started out as just a simple coffee shop back in the day way before Starbucks was found on every corner.

It's a small general store that serves the community, but they're quite famous for their bakery products, most notably the cream puffs and donuts on a stick.  The flaky crusted pies come in flavors you might not find on the mainland, such as coconut and azuki bean.  Check out the reviews on YELP.
