“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The macadamia nut tart (think pecan pie, but even better) and the fresh mango tart were both outstanding. This is a high end place using top quality ingredients. My mouth is watering as I write...we will be dreaming of this place when we are back on the mainland.

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012 via mobile

CAme across this place when i was dining at Monicos. It is hands down the best coffee on island . They grind each cup fresh to order . As for dessert they are extremely reasonably priced and are far better than any high end cup cakerie that I've ever been too . Including Cake boss (Carlos bakery ) and magnolias . Dont pass up this hidden gem .

“Seriously good treats and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

We went twice for coffee and treats to this high end bakery. From the work they were doing on wedding cakes when we visited, it seems like they are the bakery of choice for weddings. And the bonus for the rest of us is that they sell "cake tops" as a nice treat to have with coffee. The coffee is pour over, so it is rich and good. (We had even better coffee at Hanelei Cofffee Roasters, but this was really good too.) We also had a slice of cake that was really lovely (I think they referred to it as their signature cake, but I don't remember the name or even the precise ingredients -- just remember that it was really good and not overpoweringly sweet). The other treats we had we done with just the right touch as well -- sweet, but not in the overpowering cheap bakery way. In short, a perfect place for coffee and something else anytime of day, and also a great place for desert after eating at one of the nearby restaurants.

“Perfect Dessert after Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled upon Cakes by Kristen after dinner nearby. The Pastry Chef's husband was still working at 8:45P! Bought 4 cupcakes and 4 breakfast muffins. Cupcakes were fresh and not too sweet with a whipped buttercream frosting. Delicious! The banana macademia nut muffins were also very good....not too sweet, not too dry. I'd go back!
