Hawai‘i is so much more than shave ice and malassadas. Those two treats are just a few of the iconic desserts that can be found at O‘ahu’s bakeries, where goodies wander across continents, from brioche tarts filled with liliko‘i (passionfruit) curd to poi mochi donuts.

There are older places, like the 70-year-old Liliha Bakery, that deliver straight nostalgia. Shortening-based crusts and whipped toppings (in lieu of whipped cream) still dominate many pastry cases. (Health trends have largely passed Hawai‘i by, which is why you’ll still find fried apple pies at McDonald’s.) Then there are younger outfits, like the Local General
