Hawaii Cheesecake

Honolulu, Hawaii August 3 (DHN) – Do you have a hankering to indulge your sweet tooth with some delicious cheesecake on your Hawaii vacation? No, this isn’t an article to tell you about how great the Waikiki Cheesecake Factory is. Even though you walked along Kalakaua Avenue and saw the gigantic number of people waiting for a table outside the Cheesecake Factory, here at Discover Hawaii News we want to tell you about a little gem of a place called Otto Cake.
Located on Smith Street in Honolulu’s Chinatown, Otto Cakes opened in the summer of 2009. However, Otto’s career baking cheesecake began when he baked his mom a cheesecake in 1990 for Mother’s Day. Otto then took a cheesecake to a potluck and received 8 orders on the spot. He began selling his cheesecake to restaurants and cafes around the city, and now Otto’s cheesecakes can even be found at The Contemporary Museum here in Honolulu. Otto has numerous received accolades for his 90 different flavors of Hawaii cheesecake, including the Best Cheesecake in Honolulu Magazine back in 2001. On Otto Cake’s cleverly designed website, it lists that Otto offers 86 different flavors of cheesecake. While this isn’t quite true, the number pays homage to the local Hawaii band he plays bass for, The 86 List.

So much cheesecake variety in Hawaii!

What sets Otto Cake apart from the rest is that the man is focused on one thing, cheesecake. You can taste the passion in every sweet, rich, creamy bite. And with so many different flavors, including pumpkin, strawberry basil, peanut butter and jelly, chocolate chip, papaya, red velvet, blue velvet, the original, and my personal favorite, the blueberry cheesecake. The only real downside to Otto Cakes is that there is only street parking available, which in Chinatown is a commodity. Regardless, Otto Cake is a destination for any serious cheesecake lover visiting Hawaii. 1160 Smith Street, Honolulu, Hawaii
