This little patisserie was a great find. My husband and I stopped here for breakfast. We had a blueberry rock bun, chocolate croissant, veggie quiche and french press coffee. It was all fantastic. Everything looked so good, I had a hard time choosing what to get. We liked it so much we wanted to come back but our travels didn't... More

We came to Moonstruck Patisserie based on good reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! I had the lilikoi (passion fruit) cheesecake and my husband had the caramel apple tart. Both were delicious! A very cute place to visit in Hilo with amazing sweet treats!

You'll be sad if you visit Hilo and don't go here. The owner makes the most extraordinary assortment of pastries in town. Baked fresh daily. It's just as good or better than going to Paris or the best bakeries. You can't just try one :)

Absolutely love this place. I'm so sad that I only discovered it on my last day in Hilo. Would have come here everyday if I found it earlier. Everything's great. I love the cheesecake and don't usually eat cheesecakes! Great little cafe to chill, great coffee, great cakes, great ambience, great service! Please open a branch in Singapore!

Had the caramel apple pie, one word- delicious! The ladies were super friendly and really everything they had looked good, tried to go back a second time, but unfortunately they were closed by the time we got to Hilo.

They also cater and Jackie made a lovely Almond Teres cake for our wedding and embellished it with local flowers and mini... More

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we stopped here as well. Be aware the store is not open mon-tuesday. We had 4 pastries and all were excellent. A must stop for those with a sweet tooth. Creative atmosphere in a small shop with 4 tables. Table tops each painted individually.

We stopped by based on reviews and we're glad we did. This is a wonderful little spot in downtown Hilo; a little bit of Paris in old Hawaii! We had a slice of the lilikoi cheesecake and it was out of this world (I usually don't care for commercially prepared cheesecake because it's often dry - not remotely an issue... More

We were visiting Hilo for the day. Walking around the older part of the town near the market, looking for some somewhere for a coffee and perhaps a cake, we stumbled upon Moonstruck. As soon as we walked in the door, it was clear that this was a fine patisserie. We were served two excellent cups of coffee and enjoyed... More

This is a lovely bakeshop in downtown Hilo that is a stone's throw from the farmers' market. The tiny store is full of beautifully made pastries that include savoury but are mostly sweet. The puff pastry for my quiche and croissant were both light and flaky. Everything is made in-house and the shop is warm and inviting, a perfect spot... More
