“A good sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Taken there by my son for Brunch; sandwiches were a little pricey but good. We had the Classic and the Roast Pork. They bake their own bread here, which makes the sandwiches extra special. A wide selection of own baked cakes - try the Banana roulade or a salted caramel cupcake.
We ate outside. Friendly service. Open for Brunch on Sundays.

“Cakes and coffee to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We discovered this place by accident, but it was the best type of accident. on both visits the coffee was delicious, services was fast and excellent and the food was scrumptious. It is a little out of the way and you need to look for it, but well worth the find. A place not to miss

“Nutella Dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I have eaten at Short and Sweet twice this week. I had really good soup and nutella pie (yum). Second time I had their excellent orzo salad and I bought a package of their home-made marshmallows, that come in a varoety of flavors. I have also tried their flourless Chocolate Cake, which is in the death by chocolate category, in a good way. Everything so far is good from this bakery cafe.

“Great lunch stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here right after we landed with a group of four. We arrived around 2 pm so we had no problem finding parking or seating at one of the three tables inside. The service was friendly and the food was superb. We ordered focaccia sandwiches and yummy desserts. I had the grilled ham and cheese and the Hilo bar. Yum! What a great stop.
