Smokey and Giraffe's Sweet Treats
Smokey and Giraffe’s Sweet Treats is not a typical bakery. It is an online bakery where the goodies are made-to-order and mailed to you directly. Started in 2007, owners Patrick Spadinger and Kevin Kuretzky have always had a passion for baking. “We want to make people happy,” says Spadinger. “It feels good when someone tells you they enjoy your treats.”
A best seller is the signature banana breads, which come in a variety of flavors. Try the Passo-Guava banana bread, amaretto-banana, chocolate-banana or the tasty mochi-banana bread ($6.99 each). The breads are fresh and moist with loads of flavor. We recommend trying them with the bakery's cream cheese frosting made from scratch to add to your guilty pleasure. Other sweet treats include pecan pie ($14.99), and choco-butterscotch mandel bread ($4.99), which is similar to a soft biscotti.
Before you place an order online, it’s best to check Smokey and Giraffe’s website for its baking schedule. You can also find some of the company’s treats at Island Vintage Coffee’s two locations at the Royal Hawaiian Center and at Ala Moana. www.smokeyandgiraffe.com, 561-5697.
