I’ve visited this little bakery many times. This is definitely one of my favorites places! The only problem here? Deciding what treat to indulge in today. Croissants, pear tarts, cheese puffs just to name a few. Also cakes, pies, cheesecakes whole or by the slice....More

We stopped here to check out their breakfast stuff and I had a craving for French pastries--wow what a great fine. We tasted their quiches, coffee, tea and fruit tarts. All were brilliant and the coffee is worth the wait for a French Press.

If you like croissants, you must visit Moonstruck Patisserie and try their selection. So light and tasty. The almond croissant is better than those I have tasted in French Polynesia. Their coffee is sooo good. Bold and smooth. I have not bought anything from here...More

Eating in is small with no windows. Adequate, not the most comfortable for a lingering coffee and desert. Always do take out.

Light, buttery croissant pastry with melt on the plate, delicious chocolate. No need to heat it up! I’ll be back to try something else the next time we’re in Hilo!

This Bakery is very small but has some very delicious items to choose from. The lilikoi bars are my favorite, a little pricey but well worth it. They are only open a few days of the week and have limited hours.

Expensive but.... so delicious and very eye appealing. Staff explained each dessert. I purchased several individual pieces and took it to dinner at my friend’s home. Everyone enjoyed trying the desserts.

Most likely not, as we are typically in South Korea that time of year. I'm sorry for the bad news.
