Great Pasteries - all very good

They have the best custard pies. Sometimes just warm out of the oven. Price is very good about $8.00. Cream puff and coco puffs are excellent. They have a new coco puff which is green tea and Chantilly topping. Very popular. Blueberry scones and Apricot scones are great. Must try at least... read more

I have so many warm, fuzzy memories of the old '50s-style lunch counter of Liliha Bakery (the crazy way-too-bright-red jelly, the soft buttered rolls, the smashed flat corned beef hash with fried eggs!). I'm not so crazy about this larger space — sure, there's room for more eaters and they tried their best to warm up the space with atmospheric... More

First time i ever heard of Liliha Bakery was from my brother. I thought it was going to be a disappointment but that place had a line. It was like a diner from the 70s but the pastries was amazing. Then I discovered that they were on nimitz street also and that restaurant was bigger:) two thumbs up

My cousin took me to dine here for dinner. I absolutely loved it. The service was great. All the food we ordered was yummy. I bought cream puffs to take as dessert for me and my hubby on our cruise ship. We both enjoyed them very much. I will definitely be back when I get back to the islands.

We had breakfast there. I had eggs an Portugese sausage and my wife had pancakes. Both dishes were very good. The best part was the coco puffs. They are sold through the bakery portion of the business. You can get them in different flavors. Even though we liked the breakfast, the coco puffs were the stars.

This is one of the best places to eat in Honolulu! Get there early as the line can get long. Great variety on the menu. The portions are huge so bring your appetite. Service is super fast and the wait staff is friendly.

The bakery is pretty good, the cream puffs are delicious and they have a lot of other desserts you must try. My fiancee and I wanted to eat something late at night and I hate going to Waikiki to find something to eat. For some decent local food this is a good place to go if your hungry in the... More

Our friends insisted on taking us to Liliha Bakery for breakfast while we were in Honolulu. Had to wait a bit for a table, but well worth the wait. Love corned beef hash and was not disappointed. The best was the CocoPuffs that my friend bought for us to take. Incredible!

Tried the pork cutlet today with brown gravy, was amazingly onolicious! Lightly battered, couldn't tell with what, not too much fat. Great with butter rolls and pink jelly. Yum! Didn't care for the potato salad, big chunks of potato. But will definitely try again!

Located enroute to the airport, parking was very restricted, signs up all around to park ONLY where Liliha customers could park. Busy, busy you can just go in and order bakery, what we did, moves quickly - not a typical treat - never had it elsewhere, enjoy. This is a new location, I'm told the original one is still open...
