By Kach Umandap May 17th, 2022 Posted in Destination, North America Travel Blog, Travel Blog, Travel Guides No comments

The newly opened Liliha Bakery in Waikiki is a must-visit not only for their yummy pastries but their other food selection as well!

We crave some sweets once in a while and like you, I also love eating them (though I have to consider my diet, how to say “no” to desserts? haha!) Well, desserts are also known to lessen our stress, because it makes us happy (I don’t know if it’s just me! lol) As long as we eat the right amount depending on our health condition, then there won’t be any problem.

For this reason, whenever I travel, I always look for a place to eat some sweets that will satisfy my cravings. Of course, I was in Hawaii so it’s unsurprising that there are a lot of options. I was in Waikiki for a while when I found out about the newly-opened Liliha Bakery.

What to Order?

As I mentioned above, there are literally 150 baked products available on their menu so choosing the best one to eat is a hard decision. 

I visited their Waikiki location, and these are the food that you can try.

Waffard, a waffle, custard, blueberries, strawberries, mixed nuts & whipped cream all combined to create a mouthful of deliciousness. You can also add eggs, sausage, spam, ham, etc., as an add-on with an additional charge. 

For their breakfast selection, try their Country Style Omelet, which consists of 2 eggs scrambled with green & round onions, tomatoes, spinach, & choice of: bacon, ham, Vienna sausage, pork sausage, Portuguese sausage, or Spam. Aside from that, another one you shouldn’t miss is the Smoke Pork Belly & Eggs, it has strips of pork belly smoked in-house with 2 eggs! The smell is very alluring. Yum!
