Liliha Bakery


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact


The liliha bakery coffee shop serves up old-fashioned favorites such as pancakes (the island's fluffiest), portuguese sausage and eggs, grilled mahimahi and beef stew. Open 24 hours a day (except mondays when it's closed), the diner is the perfect spot to feed that late-night craving or to get an early start on the day

Liliha Bakery's Nimitz location is a step up in terms of space, but it still manages to keep the very homey atmosphere. The breakfast are delicious. The buttery sweet rolls is addictive. The service staff are attentive and friendly. The Bakery is Amazing! And not...More

The beginning of our experience left a bitter taste in our mouths due to the less than ideal parking situation. The location of this restaurant and bakery is atrocious. There are limited spaces and the parking lot is shared with other establishments. Once we were...More

We went here to get the Coco Puff. The menu is kind of small, but we were all satisfied with our choices. One of our party ordered ONLY a Coco Puff and after the other 5 of us were served, we had to flag down...More

Poi mochi donuts also great- unique texture but I didn’t love them like the coco puffs and malasadas. The Lillikoi (passion fruit) - mmm mmm. My teenage son, however, became quickly addicted to poi mochis, prompting a late night trip from Kailua to Honolulu. A...More

Worth the hype for the puff pastries - all flavours were tasty! However skip the cakes - tasted like they've been sitting there for a while.

Great place to get local favorites. Recommend the Chantilly Puffs and washing it down with POG. Enjoy the great atmosphere and the locals

Our schedule was off being on vacation and the time zone so we ventured out at 3am to have some breakfast. It was fast and declicious. Friendly service and the lilikoi pastry was wonderful for a snack later in the day!

Tasty, and well worth the wait. Lots of local favorites. Staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions. Located in the old Sam Choy's spot, restaurant was busy, but moved rather quickly. A plus having the bakery located inside. Coco Puffs are fantastic.

Sat at the bar and had an awesome breakfast. Has cream puffs, malasadas, and full breakfast. Great local joint. Worth leaving Waikiki to eat here!

Yes they have about 15 tables and seating for about 60. Our group of 6 had to wait about 5 minutes for a table.

Aloha! Definitely check on the bakery's online menu! Liliha Bakery serves prime rib, but it might only be at their Nimitz location. Definitely call to double check, and to inquire about a large party of 21. The orignial... More
