Z's Bakery and Deli really started over 40 years ago when Chef Eileen was inspired by her Auntie Rose and Grandmother. Dear Auntie Rose and Grandmother introduced her to candies and cake decorating. This craft has stuck with her to this very day.
Chef Eileen is a graduate of Le Cordon Blu in Minneapolis, Minnesota. With her constant status on the Dean's list and receiving honors, she was on the fast track to her dream. She has been working as a Pastry Chef for over 17 years. She has won numerous awards in competitions for Chocolate. In 2012, her, her husband, and special family members came to Hawaii to celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary and renew their vows on the Hawaiian sands. While here, they took a look at a bakery business and that is where the lifelong dream of Z's Bakery and Deli finally took hold. The rest is history.
Chef Eileen prides herself on the flavors. Whatever she is doing, from breakfast pastries to wedding cakes to gluten-free, sugar-free items, and vegan, she wants the taste to be there. With everything she makes, a little part of her goes into it. She truly cares about what she does and she won't cut corners.
Z's Bakery and Deli makes Wedding Cakes, Birthday Cakes, and Specialty Cakes of all sizes, as well as pastries, breads, and desserts. All of our items are fresh baked, made from scratch, and NEVER frozen.
We at Z's Bakery and Deli, are tremendously proud of our Veterans, Military Personnel, Police, Firefighters, and EMT professionals and would like to thank them for their service by offering them a discount.

Z's Bakery was great to work with, affordable, and so tasty!! I met Eileen and her husband at the Bridal Expo and chose them for my wedding based off that. There were many cake vendors there, but I gravitated towards Z's because of their beautiful decorations (cupcakes with frosted flowers by hand) and amazing cake flavors. What was special about Z's was they had a homestyle feel, like your grandma could have made them, but yet done so professionally, they were elevated for the occasion. I met with Eileen after the expo for a tasting and ordered on the spot. Of the MANY flavor options, my husband and I chose a small two-tier carrot cake with pineapple and cream cheese frosting filling, and three different cupcake options for our guests - chocolate with raspberry filling, coconut with lilikoi filling, and the carrot cake/pineapple combo. Before the tasting, I never cared for carrot cake, but Eileen made a believer in me! It was delicious! As far as decorations go, she was very accommodating in my vision. As a Pinterest user, of course I had a million ideas in my head, and she executed them exactly how I imagined! The cupcakes had a simple look- topped with three sugar pearls and a small toothpick sign with little typed words like "xoxo" or "I do." The two tier cake was frosted in a white buttercream and then topped with a clean stripe of golden sugar crystals and three fresh pink garden roses. It was gorgeous! And the cupcakes were such a hit with the guests! I think the favorite of the night was tied between the carrot cake and coconut.
You can't go wrong with choosing Z's!

Eileen, at Z's Bakery, made the wedding cake and desserts for our wedding held at Loulu Palm Estate. She not only made a delicious and lovely small cake for the bride and groom that was to die for, but she made an array of little desserts to compliment the local dinner we were serving. Her desserts were a huge hit!
I asked her if she could make us some some breakfast treats for people coming over after the wedding and she not only did that for us, which were out of this world, but dropped them at Turtle Bay so they were there for us that night! WOW!
If I could give her more than a 5*, I would!

Chef Eileen of Z's bakery was amazing. From the first day we were looking for cakes, at the Wedding Expo, Z's bakery stood out from the rest. To start, Z's bakery brought fantastic samples to the expo. This small action showed us that they actually cared about their product, compared to many other shops which brought dry and old cake.
The cake tasting was a wonderful process where we were allowed to mix and match cake flavors, fillings, and frosting. Besides being fun, we got exactly what we wanted compared to other bakeries which charge high prices and only let you try a few combinations. Once we had everything picked out, Chef Eileen was very helpful in presenting design ideas for us as well as very reasonable prices for sheet cakes with the same flavors so that our guests could share the same cake we had.
On the day of the wedding the cake arrived as beautiful as promised and just as delicious.
