The cakes and desserts were beautiful--especially the intricately decorated flower cakes on the second shelf down on the right.
I took one of these White-Chocolate Supreme beauties below on the long bus ride to The Cloisters and one the long plane ride home. Thick and chewy, and full of white and semi-sweet chocolate chunks--a wonderful cookie. I miss it as I am a chewy cookie girl and it seems like the majority of cookies in Honolulu are crunchy!
I tended to get up a bit earlier than my friends on this trip and enjoyed the apple turnover below with a cup of coffee and my book at one of the little tables while waiting for them one morning. Inside the flaky, layers of cinnamon pastry were thin delicate slices of tart apple--the whole thing melted in my mouth. (Sorry-I ate it too fast to take a picture of the inside!)
In addition to the quality of pastries, it was the friendliness of Sam, Joann and their team that kept us coming back. We got good service in several places in New York and even some great service in a few places but what set Dessert Delivery apart was the sense of Aloha they delivered. They seemed to really care about us and glad to see us, chatting, offering suggestions on places to see and things to do. When we had "our last meal" there the morning we left and picked up our Black & Whites all packed to go, Joann took the time to box up a "snack" for the plane ride home. It was a good-sized rice crispy square, with a layer of chocolate and a tasting of vanilla. Very chewy, good and much appreciated!
If you get an opportunity to visit Dessert Delivery, do not hesitate! They really know how to bake and they also know how to live and spread Aloha and we can all do with more of that in this crazy world!
