"Where France Meets Hawaii"
I always like to keep my eyes, ears....and TASTE BUDS open to new places in Hawaii, but unfortunately, I can't be everywhere... so I'm very grateful for small business supporters who send me messages about cool places to visit.
A big MAHALO goes out to Tiffany from HINANO HAWAII for messaging me and insisting that I come visit this bakery...IMMEDIATELY!!!
I gave the bakery a week to get acclimated after receiving Tiffany's message as they just recently opened, but I told myself "SATURDAY I'M CARBO-LOADING".
Hence why I needed to stop in and visit SOLEIL d'HAWAII BAKERY!
Located at the old LARRY'S BAKERY location at 4369 Lawehana St. Honolulu, Hi 96818 ...
This bakery has found it's home and is ready for you to come taste their bakery confections! SOLEIL d'HAWAII BAKERY can be found all around town as they wholesale their baked goods to many businesses. NOW, you can come in and get their tasty treats right out of the oven!
Today, I tasted many fine, handmade and baked breads BUT there were TWO that stood out for me hands down!
This is the GUAVA CREAM CHEESE. (I wish I was able to show you the whole picture but MOUTHS got to it before I snapped a photo). This baked treat was filled with cream cheese and guava! Not too sweet but savory enough to make you close your eyes and shake your head! A MUST TRY!
This magnificent child of the bakery is called a CANNLEE (kan. le). It's a french pastry that has a thick caramelized crust with a soft and tender center of custard!
This pastry was a 2-3 bite piece (1 big bite if you're HANGRY!) but it was well flavored! Not overly sweet but the custard did hit your taste buds with a savory flavor! PERFECT for an after lunch or dinner snack!
