Ted’s Bakery has been serving up sweet treats and ono food for 32 years, and remains consistent without changing recipes or sacrificing quality.
The second-generation family business was started by its namesake Ted Nakamura, whose daughter Torey Nakamura serves as general manager.
Ted’s Bakery is located on the picturesque North Shore just minutes away from Sunset Beach and features 19 pie varieties bursting with alluring flavors such as Chocolate Cream, Macadamia Nut Cream, Chocolate Macadamia Nut, Strawberry Cream, Blueberry Cream, Haupia Cream, Lilikoi Cheese, Strawberry Cheese, Chocolate Custard, Strawberry Guava, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Cream. Whole pies are $14.07 each, and individual slices of pie are available for $4.07 apiece. Guests can also keep an eye out for the delicious Pineapple Cheesecake ($5.03 per slice).
“There’s a really good mix of flavors for customers with different tastes,” Torey Nakamura says.
Ted’s Bakery pies and cakes are also available on Oahu at multiple locations including Safeway, Don Quijote, Tamura’s, Foodland, Times, the military commissaries as well as 7-11, ABC Stores, retirement homes and convenient stores. Select pies are also available on neighbor islands at Foodland as well as Big Save on Kauai.
“Our items sold on Oahu are made the day before, so they’re as fresh as you can get when picking them up at your favorite store,” Nakamura says. “Customers like the convenience of getting their favorite pies or cakes all over the island, and you don’t have to make that drive to the North Shore from town.”
Ted’s Bakery also crafts delicious cake varieties including Chantilly Cake, Dobash Cake, and during Thanksgiving, keep an eye out for seasonal flavors.
In addition to the iconic pies and cakes, Ted’s also serves hot food at the North Shore location, from breakfast items to plate lunches and even bento, sandwiches, burgers and combination plates. Popular plates include Garlic Shrimp ($15.10 for regular plate), Ribeye, Spicy Garlic Shrimp, Mixed Plate and Teri Beef Plate with white or brown rice and macaroni salad. As a bonus, the aforementioned regular-size plates come with a free slice of cream pie!
