Ted’s Bakery – Sunset Beach, Oahu


During our self-guided tour around the island of Oahu, we stopped for lunch at Ted’s Bakery.  Ted’s Bakery is located on the North Shore.  The building is brightly painted and the bright blue umbrellas make it difficult to miss.  When we pulled into the parking lot we were lucky to get a spot as a truck piled full of teenagers and surfboards sped out of the drive.  Every table was full of locals and tourist wrapped in beach towels eating out of white styrofoam containers.   

When we walked inside Ted’s, we were bombarded by the smell of different sweet and savory foods intermingled with sunscreen, the ocean, and the gritty beach sand stuck in the sun bleached hair of the surfers who were ending their day at the beach with a meal.  Despite the fact that every spot in the building was occupied, the line moved quickly so know what you are going to order before you get up to the front.  We ordered our meals.  I ordered the garlic shrimp plate lunch and Daddy J went with a mahi mahi sandwich. 


Ted’s is “home to the original chocolate haupia cream pie” and it is worth a stop to give it a try.  I am not a big fan of pie but this one has plenty of chocolate pudding-like goodness topped with coconut pudding goodness.  Do you want to try to make the chocolate haupia cream pie yourself?  I found this recipe and I am currently trying to talk my sister into making it for me when she comes to visit!

    Because you are my friend, I’ll forgive you for not being a big fan of pie (though only barely). Was the garlic shrimp good? I love mahi mahi too. Fish would be good right about now, although it’s hard to get anything super fresh here at the moment. Guess I’ll just have to head for Hawaii! 🙂

    Quite an array of food offerings for a bakery!

    How can you not love pie???
