Needed a quick and easy breakfast and here is where we found it. Came in, sat down easily, and was promptly greeted by our server when we sat down. No time wasted she got us water and a quick drink order then when we had decided what we wanted she was there. Food came reasonably quick and was delicious. I... More

When my new Hawaiian friend invited me to join her for a coco puff, I could only imagine cereal. When I bit into one of these babies, my world changed. Imagine a puff pastry stuffed with chocolate pudding filling with a creamy, caramel type frosting on top. I never want an eclair again after eating my coco puffs!

A more local than tourist spot that has an outstanding bakery with multitudes of options . The waffard , a waffle custard fruit nut creation is not too sweet and just the right amount of waffle. The omelets are also delicious. The loco moco is one of the best. Go hungry.

This is a local place that has an amazing breakfast. Counter seating so it cannot accommodate a lot of people at one time. The baked goods smelled amazing. I was so full from breakfast I did not have any room to try any but I'll definitely be back!

This place has been in business for over 60 years and I now know why!! Known for their Coco puffs (pure bliss), we had those, the chocolate bacon cupcakes, chocolate doughnuts. Glazed twists,cornbread, chocolate drop cookies and the cinnamon twists and creme horns. The only thing remotely lacking was the the cinnamon twists were a bit hard and the creme... More

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.

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!!
