Early on a Wednesday morning, Rod Ohira and Mary and Harry Chang sit on a table outside of Fendu Boulangerie, leisurely chatting after they had finished up breakfast.The three are regulars at the quaint European bakery in Manoa Marketplace. Ohira was the first customer when the venue opened in 2009 and has been eating here at least a couple mornings a week with a group of friends, including the Changs.
For breakfast, Fendu Boulangerie offers an array of pastries, including biscuits ($1), croissants ($1.75), bran and blueberry muffins ($1.30) and cranberry and mango scones (75 cents).
For lunch and dinner, you can enjoy sandwiches like the oven roasted turkey ($7) or rustic gourmet pizzas like the classic pizza with tomatoes and mozzarella (8-inch pie, $7.99) and basil pesto and goat cheese (8-inch pie, $10.99).
Fendu Boulangerie also has a variety of daily bread specials including rustic Kalamata olive bread on Tuesdays and Hamakua mushroom bread on Saturdays.
And don’t forget to try the artfully designed desserts like caramel mousse with vanilla rum bananas ($4.75 per slice) and guava cheesecake ($4.50 per slice).
For these three regulars, it’s been the delectable pastries that have been bringing them back all these mornings.
Rod Ohira: “This is the best biscuit in town. You can’t beat it. We’re always here and I always get the biscuit and the bran muffin.”
Mary Chang: “The quality of the food is excellent. I like the chocolate croissants. The dough is so flaky.”
