Moonstruck Patisserie

For a little slice of Europe in downtown Hilo, head to Moonstruck Patisserie. If you’re someone who likes to sip coffee with dessert, you’ll love this place.

Patrons agree that the coffee is excellent, and desserts are phenomenal – including almond terese, key lime pie, and something called a misterio verde, which is a green tea/matcha cheesecake. Also served are a variety of pastries.

Jackie, the owner, makes a limited batch of each item, and sells out every day because the desserts are so scrumptious.
