Found a bakery in the block where Puff City is supposed to be. Enjoyed a yummy cinnamon bun and blueberry muffin. Did not see the sign shown in the tripadvisor photo

I love the lilikoi, my friend think's the originals are the best. Either way you can't go wrong. Wish they were open a little more often. Well maybe limited hours of operation keep me from over indulging.

My favorite is still the lilikoi (passion fruit) puff, but all the other flavors taste just as awesome! Coffee, mocha, chocolate, vanilla, lilikoi, guava and coconut are some of their standard flavors. The lilikoi hi-lites sounded good too, but they were sold out, so I...More

Popped in for a mid afternoon banana puff and was an instant addict, went back 5 days later for 16 cream puffs. Unbelievably light and delicious with a variety of imaginative fillings ranging from plain cream, mocha, chocolate, chocolate with hot pepper, banana, vanilla custard,...More

Puff City is only open from 10am to 2pm so you have to be quick. After our first visit we were too late after spending too much time doing the volcanos and waterfalls. I wanted to try all the different flavours but only had the...More

This place totally deserves more reviews and more attention. The only reason I gave it a "very good" instead of an "excellent" is that superior cream puffs like these deserve to be served ultra fresh, as in out of the oven and into your mouth....More

Puff City is a bakery/restaurant in Hilo HI offering the most unique and delicious desserts imaginable, including November's special, Roasted Kabocha (local pumpkin) mousse with a cinnamon/white chocolate ganache and Cranberry mousse dusted with powdered sugar. Of course they have the usual chocolate cream with white chocolate ganache cream puff, and liliko'i cream filling with coconut frosting. They also have sandwiches (they bake their own bread) and will do cakes to order. Every month they do fundraisers for East Hawai'i charities. They're located right in downtown Hilo, with easy parking. I think they're the most wonderful bakery in America and think you should list them.
