Bakery in Kalihi wins Yahoo Travel’s best pie in Hawaii

A Kalihi bakery is still coming off its own sugar high after some national praise.

Yahoo Travel listed its favorite pies in every state, and Hawaiian Pie Company won the nod for best pie in Hawaii.

Hawaiian Pie Co. in Honolulu has the traditional pumpkin pie for the holiday, but they also offer a pumpkin custard that that adds an extra creamy dimension to the norm.

The bakery opened 11 months ago and specializes in melt-in-your-mouth buttery fruit pies and baked goods. Even better, it’s open on Thanksgiving!

“The biggest thing about pie is crust from back in the days, just been top-notch, so definitely that’s been something we carried on,” said operations manager Andrew Chun-Hori. “Our customers who’ve been constantly coming in, giving us ideas, telling us what works, what doesn’t work, enjoying the products that we put out. That’s like the biggest joy for all of us is to know that we’re making a product that people actually enjoy.”

Hawaiian Pie Company is located at 508 Waiakamilo Road. Click here for more information.
