King’s Hawaiian Bakery doesn’t just make the grocery store rolls you’ve been buying for cookouts since you were a kid. They’ve also got a restaurant in Torrance with pretty forgettable food. But the restaurant isn’t why you’re here - the bakery up front serves a huge variety of excellent mostly Hawaiian pastries. The almond stars are good, and the malasadas are the biggest, fluffiest donut holes you’ll ever eat. You’ll get them to go, but probably spend a few minutes on the patio eating one by yourself before you take them back to the office.
