The Bay Area experienced a boom of local Hawaiʻi plate lunch places, then poke, several years back. But considering the close relationship between the Bay Area and the Aloha State, there are still surprisingly few island-style restaurants in the Bay. Ono Bakehouse looks to remedy that, and it fulfills its mission well, with a butter mochi that is more elegantly cake-like compared to the jiggly school fundraiser kind. Aside from classics like chocolate haupia pie, Ono also innovates with a savory onion roll made with roasted garlic paste, and offers it in a breakfast sandwich filled with egg and Spam (because you can’t spell Hawaiʻi without Spam).
How to order: Walk in, order pickup online, or delivery via Locale.
