This was a top notch bakery with a coffee shop (diner) opened 24 hours a day. I was impressed with all the choices the bakery had from pastries, donuts, and cakes to chose from. A short line to sit at the counter for breakfast. Breakfast was good and it hit the spot. Try the raisin french toast or a classic... More

I had heard about Liliha Bakery from a friend and it was the first place we stopped after getting to Honolulu. The pastries and cookies were delicious. The coco puffs and green tea puffs were unique and delectable. We also ate there and I had the moco loco, given that those are a Hawaii tradition. It was much better than... More

This is a small bakery with a 24hr diner. It's GREAT! The prices are good. The food is NOT good if you are on a diet-but great for a small indulgence. We (4 of us) went for breakfast and had various omlettes and of course the LOCO MOCO, a local fav. The malasadas & coco puffs were delish! This is... More

I just went there for the baked goods. So many wonderful things here and the Coco Puffs are to die for. And guava cake and chantilly cake...I have to stop thinking about it because I'm back on the mainland now and it will make me so sad. It's a must stop place.

My very first time here was a blur lol but my second time I remember vividly. This bakery/restaurant is a cute old school restaurant with a counter to eat and they cook right in front of you. I loved that you could see them cooking your food. No sketchy-ness going on in the back kitchen. I had pancakes with the... More

They have they best little cream puffs called "COCO PUFFS" and they are a must try. In the 3 days spent in Oahu, in spite of all the great places to eat, we had them twice. I wish I could get them at home.

We normally avoid the normal lunch hours as the queue would be crazy. Went there around 2pm and it was still crowded but we were able to get seats immediately. Love their sweet bread, loco Moco, and coco puffs. This is our third time here and we will be back.

Like the coco puffs, but I like the brownies better; couldn't find them last time. And the line was so long...

I was out in Honolulu for 6 weeks working for the Long's Drugs that is right in front of Liliha Bakery! I ate there almost every day!! Awesome breakfast, best hamburgers I've ever had, and the most amazing desserts! It never got old. It is a landmark in Honolulu! Worth the bus ride from Waikiki to visit this bakery!

unless you are a fan of coco puffs, don't go! Everyone (tourist and local friends alike) raves about the coco puffs here, and while I don't prefer them in general, the green tea flavor is nice. I have visited here on multiple trips to Hawaii, and the bakery is always crazy with activity, with lines going out the door commonly.... More
