I heard that Tex Drive in is more commercialized. And this small little place was recommended by a local resident. 'If you want the real malasada - gotta go to Toms!' It was worth it! Loved it - my favorite was the liliquoi filled! WOW! talk about a party in the mouth good!

Fun spot in a former gas station. Baker Tom is a character. Lots of creative fillings, definitely recommended!

Baker Tom is now at Uncle Billy's; go early or you will miss the great malasadas! Baker Tom also has awesome cheesecakes.

Tom makes huge malasads, and they are overstuffed with flavor. I love his lilikoi, and the filling just oozes out and down your chin after the first bite. Oh, so good. He makes some unusual ones, too, like pizza & sausage/broccoli, etc. We pick them up in Hilo, but if you don't get there early, forget it. The only "drawback"... More

I have been to the Hilo area several times and was surprised when I didn't see Baker Tom. He is a real site and also a good baker. But I asked around and found he was in Hilo now at Uncle Billy's. I went there for malasadas. He is a bit of a fish out of water but you really... More

Tom calls himself the cheese cake king and he is. I would say his chesse cake is better than the cheese cake factory. When visiting the island we always order our favorite ameretto cheese cake. Just give Baker Tom a couple of days for special cakes. His malasadas are great too! Next time we visit I'm going to call from... More
