I have a new addiction, guilty pleasure, vice, whatever you wanna call it. The result of extra TKB and P90X workouts. Heck, I ran a few laps before writing this review. All for my visits to Mt. View Bakery. Forget the Stone Cookies, you can find those in the supermarkets. You need to come here for their donuts. At $.65 a pop...ahem...you need not adjust your computer screen. I repeat, $.65 cents a pop, you can walk out with a dozen homemade donuts for under...uh...you do the math. Let's just say, I bought 8 the other day for under $6!!! Cost is a huge plus for this joint, but hey you can get cheap donuts anywhere. The taste of these old-fashioned-glazed-melt-in-your-mouth donuts will make you come back for more. Not to mention the ham and cheese croissants, hot dogs in a blanket, and variety of turnovers and pinwheels ( including guava flavored). A small selection compared to larger bakeries, but juuust right. If there were more choices, I may be doing triple workouts daily and needing a cooler to haul my purchases. Word to the wise: BIG ISLAND LOCALS: Make it a pit stop on your way to town or volcano. Great place to pick up treats for the keiki for school birthdays or class parties. Just cut the donuts in half! ISLAND VISITORS: Soooo worth the drive. This is why you came to Hilo anyway...it doesn't get more mom and pop than this. You can grab a dozen on your way to volcano. MT VIEW BAKERY: Could you please start excepting credit cards? I'm a mileage whore...I mean, a mileage collector. I was sweating, when I saw the sign that read : CASH and EBT ONLY. Luckily I had some cash that day. Rethink it. Your new #1 customer, will greatly appreciate it. I may even bump it up to 5 STARS!
I am eating my last coconut stone cookie that I brought home and I am VERY sad. I have come to love it with my tea. I am sad. Now my most recent Hawaii trip is truely over. Guess...I jsut have to go back to get some more ;-D Hotdog in a bun - eh. Guava danish - YUM!!!! ate the second one before my husband got it (sorry honey) (No. Really, I'm not sorry.)
ick. stone cookies? get rid of the 'cookie' call them 'stones'. First, the bag looks like the last time it was redesigned was decades ago. decades. So now they have chocolate chips in their cookies. wow, so novel. talk about cutting edge. i first tried breaking the cookie. that didn't work. ok fine, i'll use my molars. that didn't work the first few times. But persistence is a virtue so after a few more tries, I finally broke the cookie without breaking my teeth. In my opinion, calling them cookies is confusing. Call them biscotti and then the expectation won't be so far off from reality. listen to the girl above, don't eat these rocks by themselves. disguise them with coffee.
