Well, I really wasn’t looking… but I did happen to notice a new company’s sign while I banked at the Bank of Hawaii next to Longhi’s on Front Street. The sign caught my eye and called me over to “Maui Specialty Bakery Products” and yes, while the chef does offer traditional bakery items, you need to know that she also offers vegan and gluten-free products.
The bakery opened on July 4, 2011 and is located right next door to the Kentucky Colonel (KFC), making it seem ultra healthy just by proximity. But Chef/Owner Gloria McMeans truly does offer healthy choices and will make (within reason) any baked item you’d like so long as you give her advance notice.
So what am I going to order? I’m having visions of a gluten-free loaf of seeded rye dancing in my head for our Christmas breakfast. That and maybe some of Chef McMeans decadent Peanut Butter Cookies, Tropical Carrot Cake, and an eclair or two to leave on the table for Santa on Christmas Eve.
Maui Specialty Bakery Products is opened Monday through Saturday 8 AM – 5 PM. Phone: (808)-662-0033; Address: 878 Front Street, Lahaina, HI 96761
