    Always a must when I come home. Must haves for me are their pancakes, Loco Moco, and Chantilly Cake. Not a fan of their coco puffs. The original location is our preferred spot, and we prefer the bakeshop seating because it's warm and you can witness the bakers in action! Not like dining at the counter, which gets crowded and cold!

    Our first evening in Oahu we stopped in at Liliha Bakery. We had dinner first- they accommodated our large party quickly. We were all exhausted and jet lagged, having Hawaiian comfort food was perfect that first night. We had a variety of dishes between us, we tried each other’s meals and the vote for the best was for the teriyaki chicken, fried rice and these butter rolls with some pink dipping sauce. It was tasty. We bought pastries to go before we left as well. The kids loved the cupcakes, the danish were so good, the apricot especially. The scones were yummy too. I don’t think you could have gone wrong with any of the baked goods.

    Matcha galore! The cream puff is by far my favorite, the crème inside and on top are not too sweet but just enough to have you coming back for more. Mochi donuts had a wonderful chewy texture to it and balance in sweetness as well. So far everything I have tried has not disappointed.

    The food was absolutely delicious! They've always been a reliable place for great food ever since I was a young boy. And it's still true all these years later!! The counter girls, Juliet and Janet, were friendly and very service oriented! I always will recommend Liliha Bakery as a good place to eat! Especially the original location! We are so excited they'll be opening another location in Pearl City in July of this year!

    Amazing! Tried the chicken and waffles and was top notch! Get there early (30 minutes after open) and get a good seat with very little wait, if at all. I hear they have lines out the door though and I'm interested to see how their dinner is next time I'm in town

    Really good pastries. The lilikoi and adzuki malasadas had generous amounts of filling. My former boss used to always bring us the cream puffs--I think the matcha ones are the best.

    First time trying Liliha Bakery; this is the original shop with counter service only. You have to wait for a seat to open, and it seems like there is always a wait for seating. I had the loco moco with grilled onions; the hamburger was cooked perfectly. I definitely recommend this place; I don't know about their other four locations, but the original is worth going to.

    Chocolate eclair is extremely delicious! Chocolate on top is rich and creamy and the custard filling is perfect. The poi ring donuts are soft and chewy with just the right amount of glazing on the outside. (They taste similar to the ring donuts from Mr. Donuts in Japan). Highly recommend these two treats. Now the chocolate chip cookies are not that tasty. It’s not crispy and the cookie has a bland almost sugar free quality to it. Not recommending the chocolate chip cookies. As a side note I prefer the Liliha/Kuakini St. location over the Nimitz one, might be my imagination, but the pastries taste better at the Kuakini St. location.🤔

    Always makes me and my stomach happy here. We ordered peach bavarian cake. It was fluffy and light taste, just sweet enough. So we could add one OR two scoops of ice cream with it!
