Late night stop

I stopped by last night and ordered the blueberry waffles. They were delicious. Unfortunately, the staff was not very friendly. That's the only reason I'm giving a 4 star instead of a 5.

We went to Liliha Bakery at the Liliha location in January 2016 and we sat at the last seats at the end of the counter right in front of the sink. Well, lo and behold while we ate, my hubby saw something running underneath the sink. He said it had a foot long tail. So I watched intensely and sure... More

The food here is excellent! Large servings. The staff is courteous and prompt. There is both a bakery and cafe: The bakery has freshly baked products that are inexpensive; however, the cafe's food is more expensive than comparable places. Ample parking is available.

The aroma was fabulous when we entered the bakery. We purchased original coco puffs, green tea puffs, pineapple roll, coconut Danish, hot dog roll, banana chantilly cupcake, and more. Delicious! So worth the stop. Cafe was available but we didn't sit down due to schedule. Free parking was helpful.

If we can, and we have time to stand in line, we usually try to eat breakfast here. Best home cooked breakfast on the island. But if pressed for time on your way to the airport, grab a box or more of frozen pastries to bring home and impress friends and family. Liliha Bakery's coco puffs are magical creations. Creamy...

maybe it was the day we went but the restaurant was VERY crowded with pushy tourists (hope they weren't locals) and it just didn't feel as island as we'd hoped. Regardless they have some interesting pastries so we got some to go and enjoyed them at the beach, which I'd recommend. What we got was VERY sweet (so you might... More

This is a 24 hour diner and bakery known for their cream puffs that our tour guide suggested we try. He wasn't wrong!! We stopped and picked up a variety of items for our week long stay in the island. We tried a chocolate, green tea, and original cream puff. All were very good. Our favorite things were the individual... More

We had the ham and cheese roll for lunch and we picked up something sweet for afterwards. We had to stand in line for service and it was worth the wait. Do stop here.

This place is an awesome bakery and restaurant all rolled into one. It was the best food we tasted on the entire island! As we are looking back on our trip, we are still fantasizing about the coco puffs and butter rolls. We had outstanding service from our attentive waitress. My husband and I are already planning to visit the... More
