After trying this treat from a convience store, I had to try the "real thing". What a wonderful treat and very nice place to stop in. Just like a little bakery and they even let you try a couple samples before you buy! If you have not tried Mochi, you need to stop in their kitchen and buy a box.... More

Generally not all that impressed with mocha in the past but this places products left a very good impression. Their signature type is fresh strawberry - certainly a good place to start if you are a newbie. Very part of the experience on visiting Hilo.

This is just a small place in Hilo to get a a large variety of Mochi. Good prices. They will ship. I was a kid in Oahu way back in the late sixties. Our landlord made mocha for us. Weird texture, but very good. Two Ladies has the best Mochi in all of Hawaii.

Mochi is pounded rice cake. It comes in different colors and shapes. It can be filled with beans or fruit or can be plain. A trip to Hilo is incomplete without stopping by the Two Ladies Kitchen. My favorite to order, and you can get individual ones but it comes in a box of 6 or 9...are the strawberry Mochi.... More

If you like mochi, you won't find any better, Anywhere. But you have to understand that this isn't typical American food-the texture is weird. Bean paste isn't cream filling. And the cornstarch is messy. BUT if you put it all together it is so ONO-yummy. If you are looking for a muffin and a cup of coffee, go to Bear's.

This isn't a restaurant, it is a place where mochi is made and sold. Now, I love mochi and this is some of the best I've had. If you don't like mochi...you won't like it. Some people don't like the texture which is kind of gummy, but I love the chewiness of mochi. And the fillings are not "normal" for... More

Wanted to try these while staying in the Kapoho area. We bought an assortment of these little treats and brought them home to sample. I can hosestly say that I am not a fan and most of them ended up getting thrown out.

I thought I was walking into a bakery where I would find pastries and other baked goods, maybe I was naive and simply didn't realize the type of treats they were making, but they weren't what I was expecting when we got back to the hotel 2-3 hours later and sat down to eat them, unfortunately most of them ended...

This lovely place is definitely worth the stop. They are so friendly and helpful. They will offer you samples to help you decide. The strawberry mochi were PHENOMENAL!
