Good Eats: Stillwell’s Bakery & Cafe

The fresh fruit pastries, baked goods and sweet treats are a bit overwhelming upon entry, I literally wanted to try everything!
Noted as one of the best bakeries on Maui, Stillwell’s in Wailuku is a must-stop for kama’aina and malihini. Let me tell you, their Cream Horns are to die for and the other pastries, cakes and homestyle prepared dishes are made with love and care, just like mom makes.

1740 Ka’ahumanu Avenue in Wailuku, Stillwell’s is open 6am-5pm Monday – Saturday.

Nestled in the historic town of Wailuku, this unassuming cafe serves expertly made patisserie items including sweets, sandwiches, salads and local comfort foods like dry mein, chow fun and an array of breakfast plates. When you stop here you feel just like family. Order from the cashier, give them your name and one of the cooks delivers your order to you when it’s ready.

They also bake mini-cheesecakes perfect for that special occasion.
Lighter fare includes items like mousse cups and creme brûlée.
These were so tempting!!
Large Cream Horn – delicious goodness.

Now you MUST try the Cream Horns, if you aren’t that hungry you can get the mini ones ($2.10), if you are seeking something about footlong-hotdog-sized get the Large Cream Horn ($3.25).

It’s delightfully crisp and flaky on the outside, sprinkled with powdered sugar and stuffed with sweet, custard-like cream.

The ends are dipped in chocolate to lock in the creamy goodness and adds a lovely touch of coco to the sugary, crunchy treat. Each and every bite was divine and I didn’t care that I was getting powdered sugar all over my mouth. Trust me, its worth it!

Mini-Cream Horn, 3 bites and big enough to satisfy the craving.

I also tried the fried egg sandwich $7.95: comes with your choice of bread, 2 eggs, meats and cheeses.

The cafe is quaint, simple, provides indoor and outdoor seating. Parking is shared in a large lot located on the makai side of the building. As I sat there and enjoyed my breakfast, many “regulars” seemed to make their way in, ordering take out, dining in, mindlessly paying for “the usual” — there was a great sense of family and hospitality here. It seems like a mom and pop shop with fine pastries found its way to the humble streets of Wailuku and that’s exactly where it belongs.
