I wish my wife and I found this bakery/restaurant much sooner than the day we flew home. It had a huge bakery inside of it along with a huge place for you to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner. If you like pancakes, then you must try Liliha's! The prices were normal, stateside prices, not like you are at a resort.... More

Delicious donuts, light and fluffy. Worth the drive out here. Recommend the donut poi rings. Guava cupcakes were a bit too sweet for me.

Closed for renovation soon. I think you have to go to the newer branch on Nimitz Hwy. Its bigger and cleaner, but not as nostalgic. Pasties are very good: Bread, not so much

A visit to Oahu is not complete until you stop at Liliha Bakery to being home some pastries. Coco puffs are a big thing for the Big Island because we don't have them there. They come in different flavors: green tea, chocolate and the original creme coco puff. They offer other pasteries, cakes and cookies. The staff there are great.... More

Anyone visiting Oahu simply HAS to try a coco puff. Warning, you might not stop after one. I am a coco puff addict, and turned 99 per cent of my friends into the same.

After being closed for renovation for a while it was great news to hear a coworker say they were open again. Had the Mahi/Hamburger steak combo. Super good as expected!!

Whenever we go to Oahu we get off the plane and go straight to Liliha Bakery. No questions asked. The coco puff is basically a mini cream puff filled with a velvety chocolate custard and topped with a Chantilly frosting. Sweet and salty in the same bite. It is sooooo good!! They of course also have lots of other yummy... More

We stopped here for a quick breakfast on our way to Pearl Harbor. It is a very busy place even though it was a weekday and in between breakfast and lunch time. The line for counter seating moved fairly quickly. The waitresses really hustle and the food was served fast. The food was delicious and the coffee was good too.... More

I know - Poi! You either hate it or love it! I don't like it and my boyfriend asked me to get him one. I gave him a hard time but I ended up loving it and got a dozen to bring home. Don't forget to get a number at the bakery to get service.

This bakery is known for their cream puffs, however, these were not as outstanding as they were made out to be - and honestly, would not go back for these. HOWEVER, they have numerous other items that are worth the drive. One is the guava roll. It is basically a guava jelly cake filled with guava preserves and a guava... More
