French pastries on an Hawaiian island...does it get any better than this? Frankly, no. Tiny footprint, giant taste, get there early before the buttery croissants are gone!

This place has been here for 6 years and I had never known. I've been here for 12 years without knowing their existence. But they are a small shop in down town Hilo, a little hole in the wall with sweet treats and homemade goodness from a pastry chef. She was proud of her work and you could tell, everything... More

The word "Patisserie" alone makes me senses perk up and Moonstruck does not disappoint. Just a few tables, but usually there is always room to sit. Your coffee comes in an individual French Press and everything in their display not only looks amazing, the cakes, pastries and croissants are a little bit of heaven in a small side street of...

Moonstruck Patisserie has a wide variety of baked goods, carrying not only sweets, but savory tarts and quiches as well. Make sure to check the days and hours they are open, as they are only open a select few of the week. But Moonstruck is definitely worth working your schedule around.

We stopped in this patisserie by chance after strolling through the open market in Hilo. We are so glad we did. We were a bit tired, so we ordered their French Press Coffee for Two. Then we added their delicious almost croissant and their Suisse Tarte to our order. What a treat. I love great coffee--and theirs was that!

We asked the owner to set aside some croissants, almond croissants, and scones to take to our vacation rental for breakfasts. They were absolutely delicious, and some of the best croissants we have ever tasted. We were tempted to try the amazing cakes but did not want to leave them in the car for a later occasion. This is a... More

I usually... More

Jackie is a master at her craft. I am so happy to have her European bakery here. From rock buns/scones to cakes to croissants to pastries to quiche, and to cookies on holidays, Jackie's creations are wonderfully delicious. Not only are they beautiful to behold, but excellent, and by far the best , to the taste buds. Jackie has a... More

I've been here several times, but finally took my 10 year old niece! She was so impressed and LOVED THE DESSERTS! Kids are brutal and honest with their comments, but she loved her piece of chocolate mousse cake! She was blown away, and even said that she needed to bring her mom! She finally knows why I call this my... More
