Okay, okay I know I'm probably the only local girl in all of Hawaii who doesn't just drool over Liliha Bakery's cocoa puffs. Although, it's not them it's me, really-- I'm just not a huge cream puff girl in general.
But, that aside. You have to try the cocoa puffs-- they really are good. And if you have just a minute or two more you could sit at the old fashioned counter and order true diner style from their menu overflowing with local goodness.
I love stopping by here just to soak up the energy of what seems to be one of the last true diner's in Hawaii. Oh the good ole days.
Oh and also this is the perfect, and by perfect I mean really, truly perfect in every way, place to break any carb related fasting. Be careful when you enter as you will most likely not be able to leave with out one of their signature boxes brimming with sugary sweetness. And that, truly is the sweetest thing.

My favorite aunt would make a layover in Los Angeles to bring us cocoa puffs on her way to Las Vegas. Now that she's gone, I have to fly to Honolulu myself. Sadly,. that doesn't happen often enough. If you're ever near Honolulu you must try these cream puffs. They are just amazing. AMAZING I SAY!!!!

I live in Portland, Oregon now, but when I go home, I always stop by Liliha Bakery for their cocoa puffs. I love the old-fashioned lunch counter, and the food is excellent. I have had breakfasts and lunches here and everything is always good and tasty. Just good, homestyle local cooking at its best!

The food here is down-home, local food! I enjoyed everything I tried there. They make a great hamburger steak and the pancakes are good . . . and this is from someone who rarely eats pancakes!
Seating is hard to come by especially if you have large groups since they only have a small counter.
Cocoa puffs (chocolate cream puffs) are EXCELLENT!

And I'm not kidding. No matter what, I'm ordering at least a dozen cocoa puffs (chocolate filled cream puffs with chantilly icing on top..pure heaven). Suprisingly enough though, as good as their pastries and desserts are, their hamburgers are fries are perfect too! The burger is a size that I can handle, without feeling as though I ate a half a pound of beef. The bakery is definitely busy but the women who work here (many of whom have worked here for years and years) are so very helpful and will get you out of there as quickly as possible. I hope this bakery never leaves us.

In addition to cocoa puffs, Liliha Bakery makes the best frosting. I am NOT a frosting person--I'm usually the one scraping it off a cake because it is too sweet, greasy or gritty or whatever. Liliha's frosting is light, just the right consistency, not too sweet and the perfect topping to really ono cakes. They have a ton of designs and will also customize the decorations, too.

Growing up in Nuuanu I had a taste for Liliha Bakery's Cocoa Puffs from a very young age. And, being older now, I've seen many imitations. Even when I went to France and sampled a pastry filled with custard and chocolate, nothing beats Liliha. Nothing!
