So delicious with a variety of flavors & textures, Nora & her team provide very high quality mochi & manju which are always a treat, even for us locals! They also experiment with local fruit & new combinations which are surprisingly delightful to try.

My partner and I had just done a grueling lava hike and decided to stop in Hilo for refreshments. I was absolutely set on seeking out these guys, as I'd read so many great reviews - I was not disappointed! As soon as I walked in, I was greeted warmly and offered some samples...there were so many, and they looked... More

Whenever I travel I have to bring some of this with me to the outer islands.No one makes a better strawberry mochi than Two Ladies Kitchen. Best to order for pickup since they run out really fast !!

If you see a constant flow of traffic in and out of this tiny storefront, then it must be a place to go to. Locals? Outer island folks (like us)? Yes. And of course tourists.. Pretty and unique morsels of mochi AND manju, and if you're lucky, a lady showed up with a tray of samples. Well known for their... More

Strawberry mochi! Ono! (Delicious). The girl in front was very polite and helpful. There's street parking right in front and it's cash only. Definitely will return!

Even if you're not familiar with Mochi, you WILL find something that will give you that "aha feeling." Known for their Strawberry Mochi, there is a whole assortment to choose from; I recommend the white nectarine mochi; their pie crust manji...I recommend EVERYTHING!!!!

Fresh, the best mocha that you can find. All flavors available. If you don't want to wait just call and place your order. When you get there it will be ready for you to pick up. Great service .

Worth a stop while in Hilo. Interesting flavors and textures. Delightful on the pallette. You may have to wait in line, but worth it.

You are in Hilo, stop by Two Ladies....across from a Ben Franklin store. Lots of locals, small store. If you do not want to wait then they put an assortment (about 10 - 12) in prepacked container (random fillings). About 90 to 95 cents per mochi. If you cannot find the shop or they are closed then the prepacked containers... More

Before leaving Hilo this place is a required stop if you like mochi. Everything done by hand so there's lots of love in each mochi and bite.
