I think there is no North Shore food list without Ted’s Bakery.
And said list, is probably not complete, without a recommendation to eat some Ted’s Haupia Pie.
Well, this is my blog. I get to change the rules.
Here’s what you need to know about Ted’s.
Get there early. You want a doughnut. Possibly plural. Fresh, plain, glazed. Trust me. Beats out any of those other doughnuts any day of the week. Just writing this sentence is making me wish it was morning so I could have one, or two.
I may, or may have not, bought 2 doughnuts, intending to share with someone, and then conveniently forgot that I was going to share.

I’m trying to emphasize this for you. That’s what you want. Some of you may be skeptical about this. Most people just go straight for the pie and never try the cake.

Or if you realize you need to work it off, jump on the bike path. This path runs the length of the road from just before Sunset Beach to Waimea Bay. It’s great for strolling joggers, or just plain walking. While you walk you can fantasize about where you wish you could live, see some excellent views, and get in a couple of fun pit stops. If you want to see Hawaii, walk!
