Donut Dynamite! Maui’s quiet town of Wailuku is home to some of the planet’s most artful donuts. This shop's owner — who prefers to go simply by “Madame Donut” — opened this location after she and her husband won the “Backyard Barbecue” episode of The Cooking Channel’s Sugar Showdown. Both trained at the Culinary Institute of America and bring a high-concept approach to this most playful and accessible of foods. “Donuts let you be a kid again and enjoy $5 worth of luxury,” she explains. Standout flavors include bacon maple, cheesy hammy, and a lush purple number flavored by Molokaʻi sweet potato and poi, a Native Hawaiian staple made from taro roots. Don’t miss the legendary cinnamon toasty crunchy, topped with perfect brunoise-cut mini croutons created in-house.
