This Bakery is such a gem! EVERYTHING is GF, she also offers DF.

You walk in and the owner is the most friendly women, and asks you your dietary restrictions and will gladly recommend what she has available!

I honestly don’t even know what I ordered but it was all amazing!

I left and had tears in my eyes, I am a true foodie at heart, recently told I can no longer have gluten (still trying to figure out the extent of it) and so my vacation was a little frustrating surrounding food, but walking into somewhere I could have EVERYTHING 🥺 and it was delicious! Thank you for doing that for us, you are a blessing!!!!!!!

Susan is absolutely amazing! Our journey to Hawaii has been a bit worrisome for all of us since my son is Celiac and dairy free. I called to make sure they were open and Susan answered and said they weren’t but had leftovers from the farmers market if we wanted. I informed her we didn’t have a vehicle, so she asked for my number so she could possibly deliver. She texted me back that she did find a driver OR we could come in the morning on our way to the airport ( they were closed till 1) and she would have baked goods. . We arrived at 9am and she was ready for us. We selected several pastries and bread and off we went to Maui with tears in our eyes because of the kindness she showed our family. Everything was absolutely delicious. We don’t eat out because my son is so sensitive and I this experience was one of our highlights! I highly recommend you go!

Wonderful. The owner here is so kind and friendly. The food is awesome. The pound cake with the sweet purple tarot is lights out! We stopped by at the end of the day when most stuff was gone, but we really enjoyed everything we are. We had the meatball slider, the jelly rolls, the Elvis, and some dinner rolls. Everything was awesome and of course gluten free. We talked to her about why we stopped by and she said she gets lots of business from this app. :)

We sampled a variety of everything available on the day we visited. Cinnamon rolls and pound cake were our favorites. We also really enjoyed the meatball and vegan buns, pizza and shepherd’s pie for lunch. Very friendly service!

I can’t say enough good things about this amazing bakery. The other reviews that talked about her getting the bread texture nailed is spot on. I was so, so impressed by all of the baked goods I tried. It was absolutely wonderful and I will be going back again. Make time to stop here. The meatball slider and other food besides the baked goods were all wonderful, too.

Accidentally Went on a day that they weren’t open but the owner was there and let me buy what she had left over from the farmer’s market and then tossed in 2 cookies on the house. Went back again today and got many things for the plane ride back home. Very nice people, everything tasted great, and great selection. The owner does a gluten free cook book coming out soon, her name is Susan Fein. I am looking forward to buying it.

The bakery is a little hole in the wall in a small strip mall surrounded by neighborhoods. The parking was limited but the food was well worth the stop. I bought a variety of items from savory to sweet and they were all delicious. This bakery nailed it with gluten free baked goods that are light and tasty. I will make a stop here whenever I visit the island.

WOW! Fantastic treats. I especially liked the savory treat I got. It can be so hard to make a great bread texture with gluten free flours -- and these people nailed it!

I am so thankful for this place! I love to grab their goodies from the farmers markets too. They are fresh & so so good! My husband took me here for my birthday & I picked out so many delicious items. The peanut butter sticky bun was insanely good! I love their PB&J cookie & my daughter loves there cinnamon buns! If they happen to have the “Elvis” you better buy it! You will not be disappointed! And Pro Tip… you can call in orders! So give them a call & order whatever you’ve been missing.

Nice to have a dedicated gluten free bakery but that’s all I can say positively. The cookies were terrible - not sweet, severely lacking in flavor and made with vegan “butter”. You could clearly taste the gf flour - pls use some serious amount of vanilla to give it some positive flavor! I appreciate having a GF bakery but would never go there again bc the treats we basically a lump of flavorless GF flour.

Great ‘little’ place. A little hard to find & parking was on the street, but everything there was gluten free & what we ate was delicious! People working there (May have been the owner(s)) we’re very friendly & helpful. On the way out the lady that was baking gave me a small sweet roll to try. It was awesome!! Tasted like Kings Hawaiian Bread!! Wish I had tried it before we left, I would have probably bought a dozen! The place appeared to be dedicated gluten free.

The people at Pu'uwai Aloha Bakery are so friendly, kind, and accomodating. Gluten free and dairy free is challenging to find, but they had an incredible assortment of baked goods. We had the gf & df pesto pizza (small, individual pizza), cinnamon roll (amazing but very sweet!), peanut butter cookie w/jam, macadamia walnut snowball cookie, and chocolate devil's food cake. All were delicious! Our favorites were the cinnamon roll and peanut butter cookie.

Those of us who can eat dairy had the gf smoked salmon frittata and pizza w/cheese.

We loved this place and paid a second visit to them on Sunday at the Kailua Farmer's Market.

Everything is gluten free. There were sweets and sandwiches the day I went in. I had the carrot cake, matcha cake, and snowball cookies. All very delicious. I’m a tourist so I didn’t understand the names of many of the options. The snowball cookies are like shortbread consistency with powdered sugar and a jam or chocolate in the center. The cakes are little loaf cakes or pound cakes and are so good!

I would recommend stopping here if you’re on vacation and have a rental car! My husband and I love trying out GF bakeries when we travel, and this has been a favorite so far.

It’s in a residential area and a bit out of the way if you’re a tourist but well worth it. The hours on google are incorrect. They’re actually open until 6 or 6:30pm, and they are also open on Wednesdays.

I’d recommend the snowballs, rosemary breadsticks, any sandwhich, the peanut butter chocolate cookies, and the dinner rolls. My non-celiac/GF was a huge fan of many of the sandwhiches (I could only try the vegan one due to dairy, and it was wonderful!).

They also have carry out pizza, though we did not try it.
