We were staying in Hilo for several days; after having one dreadful breakfast in our hotel we’ve decided to find something better and we found a gem named Moonstruck Patisserie. This is a top quality pastry cafe in the Hilo historic downtown. There are very few tables, which I believe allows the owner – Jackie – to keep the amazing quality of the pastries. I had individual size quiche Florentine and chocolate croissant – both were unbelievably delicious. Fresh French-pressed coffee – just perfect, not too weak, not too strong. Place is very clean, nicely decorated, and the owner is most pleasant person. It does look like the quality is her first and foremost priority. We were so pleased, that next day we came back for another breakfast. I’d advise to get in early (café opens at 8:30) - all theses delicious quiches, croissants, etc. go fast.

Stopped here for coffee and a small pastry. Was pleased to get delicious french-pressed coffee and a deliciously super light chocolate croissant. All the other pastries looked delicious as well.
On street parking was easy to find. Would stop here again.

At the risk of restating the previous review...the quiche is the best I have ever had! The owner/baker is delightful. The French press coffee was a welcome respite from other restaurants serving overly acidic coffee. The place should be on scribes list!

Found this place by chance and so glad we did!!! Amazing desserts. Fully recommend. Also tried out the quiche and the iced tea both of which were excellent. We could make out the food was made by a professional chef and baker

An extraordinary selection in this hole in the wall bakery and cafe -- I'm particularly fond of their quiche, a pot of freshly brewed coffee -- that's freshly brewed for each order -- and a slice of Almond Therese for dessert plus some croissant to take home for breakfast.
