My search for cupcakes in Maui was coming to an end and I was coming home empty-handed. BUT that doesn't mean I didn't find some other great desserts. I already posted my review for Stillwell's Bakery, but there's still one more place I have to tell you about: Leoda's Kitchen & Pie Shop.
We must have driven past this place about 10 times while in Maui. Every time I promised my husband that I was getting a pie before we headed back to the mainland. True to my word, we stopped by on the way to the airport.
My first thought after walking through the door was that I blew it by already eating lunch. They sell chicken pot pies! Oh well, I still had some room left for dessert (although I always have room for dessert!).
The pies looked delicious. And the best part is that they came in different sizes! That meant I could get more than one!
I walked out of the shop with a smile on my face and two mini pies: macadamia nut chocolate praline and banana cream. Verdict: so delicious! Both pies are pudding based. The praline crust was excellent and my favorite part of the macadamia nut pie. The flavors were phenomenal, especially the bites with layers of caramel! I could (and would) eat this pie all day. I almost cried when it was gone. My husband picked the banana cream as his favorite, but it was a close call for both of us.
You MUST check out Leoda's Kitchen and Pie Shop when you're in Maui! And if you do, let me know how the chicken pot pie is. Here's a few more of my favorites photos from our trip. We were sad to come home, but still have the memories.
