Ok, I have to admit it. One of the best activities for anyone on any vacation is eating. It’s also a kid-friendly activity because what kid doesn’t want to eat all that good food? Reese is usually a picky eater but even she had my back on this one. For kid-friendly activities in Oahu, you can’t go wrong with trying out the food plus it’s a great way to experience the culture. And boy, is there a ton of it to try in Oahu. Before your head spins with all the options, Reese and I put together a list of our favorite kid-friendly places we visited while in Oahu.
Places to Eat in Oahu with Kids – Liliha Bakery
After a traditional lunch of spam (We seriously can’t get enough), Reese grabbed her aprons and got to work rolling out dough for their ever so popular poi mochi donuts. I think Reese ate her body weight in these and I thought we were going to have to roll her out of there. These donuts have a texture like no other donut I’ve ever tried and had a consistency similar mochi which I loved. They were the perfect amount of sweetness and the purple color made them super cute to eat.
The word on the street is Liliha Bakery is known for their coco puffs. A buttery cream filled chocolate covered puffed pastry, so we couldn’t leave without trying one…well more like 3 or 4. Simply put, the coco puffs were incredible and I’m serious when I say don’t leave Hawaii without trying a few. I’m still trying to talk Stan into shipping Coco Puffs and Poi Mochi Donuts to California…so far no luck…but I’m persistent lol.

The one thing to note is during our visit, they did not accept credit card (cash only) and the nearest atm was about 5 blocks away so make sure to grab cash before you go. It’s also very small and tucked away (if you blink, you’ll miss it), so look for the sign in the picture above.
Places to Eat in Oahu with Kids – Eggs ‘n Things
I almost said no because it’s a ton of food but YOLO right? I’m happy I gave in and ordered them because they were honestly the best pancakes I have ever had. How is it possible for one restaurant to knock two key items out of the park! I’m still not sure but Eggs ‘n Things has done it. Both the pancakes and spam looked and smelled divine and they tasted like heaven. If you can only eat breakfast at one location while in Hawaii, it should be here and it should be pancakes! You’ll love it!
