“The BEST dessert place in town!!! I highly recommend it!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Hey to "robin h" the negative person who left that review. This is for you!!!! I'm sure when the sun shines you complain and when it rains you complain. Nothing will ever make you happy. Im sad your like that. I'm so sorry that you can't appreciate amazing food and coffee when it hits you in the face. It's the "short" giraffe bake shop not Starbucks. Go there if you need a bigger hangout place and mooch off of their wifi!!!! Negative people are not allowed in this shop!!!

The short giraffe is THE dessert place to visit and order from in Sarasota County!!!! I highly recommend her and do recommend her everyday to family, friends and clients. Her desserts are so moist and packed with flavors so unique it's INSANE!! Leigh the owner and baker is so creative with creating unique and stylish desserts. She is also amazing at creating desserts for those that have diet restrictions and food allergies. She is extremely sought after by brides and is always asked to create her mini cakes with an assortment of mini desserts to go along with it. Often times the dessert table is completely wiped out. This is definitely a testament to her work.

I absolutely love her almond infused sugar cookies. If you can special order them lemon flavored dipped in white chocolate...do it!! OMG!! You'll thank me!! I'm obsessed with her triple chocolate s'mores truffles. If your lucky enough to catch her honey lavender cake at her shop... Order a slice. Wow!! Her peanut butter bacon cookies is must!!! Guys love them!! Her lemon shooters are soo refreshing!!! The strawberry balsamic pannacotta..... is so smooth and creamy. I can never eat just one.

If you are visiting Sarasota you'll have to stop by and say hello to Leigh she so kind, super genuine and her customer is amazing. You'll love this gem of a store. Sarasota is so lucky to have bake shop in town!!!!!!!

“Delicious Desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This was a great place to pick up some really delicious desserts. We went on Truffle Friday, and got the cake batter, smores, and lemon flavor truffles. All seem like they had high quality ingredients. The major downside, is there is a limited selection, as the actual shop is VERY tiny. We just ordered ours and sat outside. Will definitely return to see what options they have available on other days.

“My addiction-small or not!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Okay to the jerk before who wrote terrible things about the short giraffe- you obviously can't enjoy the little things in life!! The short giraffe is supposed to be small and quaint that's the whole point of a hole in the wall bakery. It may be small in size but the taste of the desserts is definitely not close to small. Everything tastes impeccable and I go almost every day. Those who can appreciate the little things in life will be able to look past the size of this amazing bakery and be able to notice the real beauty that you will experience when her desserts touch your taste buds!! I highly recommend the short giraffe!!
