What: Kings Hawaiian Bakery Restaurant

Where: South Bay

For: All Ages

After years of eating (and loving) Kings Hawaiian bread, we discovered that the company has a bakery and restaurant down the street from us.  Starting in 1950 in Hilo, Hawaii, Kings Hawaiian has become a household name.  Since our family went to Hilo last November, I thought this restaurant would be essential to visit…and it definitely lived up to expectations.

The Restaurant

From the moment you walk into the restaurant, you’re transported to the Hawaiian Islands.  A huge display of bakery sweets line the wall.  Towers of Kings Hawaiian bread are to your right with a take-out counter to your left.  An enormous pineapple greets you into the dining room.  There is a large circular floor-to-ceiling fish tank in the back of the restaurant where patrons can sit around while eating.

Everything that we’ve eaten here has been melt-in-your-mouth delicious.  We like to try the platters with as many types of food as possible to give us a sampler of the food offered (there’s a lot of different types of meat).  We spent about 45 minutes eating in the restaurant before moving to the bakery.  Ethan and I ate so much that we barely had room for dessert!  Keep in mind that catering is provided with pricing on the restaurant’s website.  The second time we came here, we ordered takeout that was ready in 10 minutes.

The Bakery

The bakery portion of the restaurant contains beautiful cakes and pastries for sale.  They can also create custom beautiful wedding cakes.  Most bakery offerings are traditional savory Hawaiian desserts intermingled with regular desserts that you would expect.

The Crowd

There was a great mix of people in the restaurant.  Skylar squealed with delight when we walked in after catching sight of the bakery desserts.  Everyone working there is kind and treats you as ‘ohana’.


We spent about $40 for two large dinner entrees and drinks.  An additional $20 was spent on two slices of cake, a cupcake, and a few other sweets.  This is a very affordable restaurant that we will definitely come back to again.

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
