OMG ! like there is nothing better than this. i shared this cake with Friends and Family, served up to 10 people maybe can add 2 more slices. Guava, Passion, Lime ! if you are looking for something that is not too much on the Sweet side this is a perfect Cake for you to enjoy. Truly one of my Favorites. the bread is Fluffy and the Jam/Spread of each Fruit is Delightful. Hats off and Compliments to the Chef. Love It ! cannot get Enough of it ! I cannot remember the woman who helped me but she was really patient with me and gave me a clear picture of what this Magnificent Cake is all about. Thank You !
this is the most fabulous dessert ever the flavors together are unbelievable and I have taken this desert to every party I've gone to in California and can't believe the California's don't often know about it but they start ordering it after that I have driven for hours from different places that I've stayed in California in order to get this cake and immediately go to pick it up when I get off the train and put it in the refrigerator at my hotel so that I can eat a constantly I have also had two different friends of mine fly to Chicago and bring the cake with them on their lap on the plane for my birthday. This definitely de Paradise highlight of May celebration. My one friend drove from Temecula to pick one up and freeze it and bring it to me because they know that this is truly Paradise
Love The Local Place! Its the closest island food next to visiting HI!
This is my favorite! I always get an item from the bakery to take to work the next day. It is a treat to come because we live in Pasadena.
Drive at least once a week from Long Beach just for the Dole Whip
This is by far one of my favorite salads! Its crispy fresh and just the right amount of dressing! I love the chicken & avocados on top. This is what I come back for!
Best chocolate cake ever
The peach Bavarian is my absolute favorite cake...so moist and delicious...you have to try it once they start making them again...
It was a super cake with colorful Hawaiian fruits, which was just right sweetness. The naming of this cake was correct as Paradise Delight!
Always great...full meal with the rice and mac salad...
Taste great and she loved the flavor. She will definitely order again.
The French Toast made with Hawaiian bread was delicious and paired with spam, the perfect breakfast. I highly recommend the Local Place for your breakfast needs.
This cake is so delicious, I want to have it every year for my birthday.
Da best key lime ever! Onolicious!
This is local kine Grindz!
Fantastic and tasty sandwich, pork was perfect!
BEST breakfast burrito!!! Instant happiness!
I got the paradise cheesecake for my virtual graduation commencement. Even though I wasn't able to cross the stage in Husky Stadium at the University of Washington, I'm really grateful to celebrate with my family. The paradise cheesecake is beyond delicious every single time. You get the best of both worlds because it's fruity and the perfect amount of cheesecake. Highly recommend for anyone who loves sweets and cheesecake!
Best cake ever!
Worth the 30 min drive!
Always a treat to eat this uniquely prepared dish. So yummy!
Best cake love it
Love Love this restaurant when I get homesick for the islands. Kalua Pork always spot on! I usually do Kamaina plate with Teri Beef. Also ordered a Saimin for later. Very Ono-licious!
This is by far my favorite cake and has always been since a child. This is the cake I've used to celebrate each of my birthdays... how I got asked to prom... how we celebrated my engagement... and now will be my wedding cake as well! The Hawaiian Paradise cake is beautiful and delicious!
I am generally not into sweets, I prefer salty flavors but this pie surprised me in every way. Although I eat bananas I wouldn't choose a banana desert but the blend of banana, fresh strawberries, with whip cream and dark chocolate is amazing and the macadamia nuts just make it perfection. It is awesome! all of the flavors are well balanced. Try it you will not regret it
This is my second time having a mochi doughnut (ever) and it was just as amazing as the first one I ever had from here. LOVE the social distancing/mask requirement/precautions they're taking to keep everyone safe! I had gotten the pineapple matcha flavor which was so flavorful and light, and the perfect texture! I had also gotten the chicken katsu curry bowl which was stacked with rice and chicken! It was a huge portion! The cashier, Josh...N? was super patient with my daughter and I picking from the display case and walked with us over to it to answer any questions. Thank you for the kind service and delicious treats!! Kings Hawaiian is a southbay staple!!
I love this cake so yummy😊
This is a must have when you visit this place!. I love how light and fluffy the chocolate chiffon. I always get. a slice of this cake whenever I'm in the neighborhood.
I always love eating at your establishment for it authenticity and quality of food. I live some 40 miles away, which is far enough, because if I lived closer, the temptation of eating there every day would be to great.
WTF? I ordered this item and got 1 hamburger patty and 1 egg. DO NOT ADVERTISE 2 PATTIES AND 2 EGGS. SERIOUSLY?
I've been to The Local Place half a dozen times over the years. The last time I ordered the Lau Lau, Kalua Pork, and Lomi Salmon. It was so good that when I shared it with my family all they left for me was the macaroni salad. I gotta get back and order my own - this time I won't share it!
Awesome flavor and the salmon is so tender
Best cakes & everything elsr♥️
The paradise delight is always a crowd pleaser. And the staff is always happy to write ✍ your greeting
Teriyaki was good, needed more sauce. Chicken was good.
Simple and tasty!
I had the malasadas. They were so pillowy and fluffy. They gave me memories of when we went to hawaii. We weren't able to teavel anywhwre this year for my birthday but its comimg up on auguat 6 so for my birthday my family and i are going to go and get some malasadas and the party platter for my family and I. I cant wait. But yes everything from the local place is amazing especially the malasadas and the chicken katsu !!!
My parents brought me here after begging them for months to try mochi donuts. They have been taking really good care of me and my brother throughout the whole pandemic. They brought me here to pick up mochi donuts and food as well, the food was of course great as usual ,but the mochi donuts really took the cake the combination of the perfect donut and the chewy texture of the mochi was the most amazing combination of textures and flavors I've ever had in a dessert. I cant wait to come back for my birthday and get have another great experience since we cant celebrate with family and friends i can celebrate with my favorite food and dessert!! So thank you kings hawaiian for making my first meal and dessert during this pandmemic a memorable one. 😊
Food is on point. Come from San Marcos, Ca to eat. My compliments to the staff.
We LOVE this sandwich! Not only is the Kalua pulled pork delicious in its tangy BBQ sauce, but it is topped with the incredible Macadamia Nut Onion Rings and the the fantastic pineapple chutney! (TIP: We always ask for extra chutney!)
