It all began more than forty years ago when Akiyoshi and Sue Toyoshima opened a café in San José, and were interested in adding some baked items to their menu. A baker friend of theirs in Hilo, Hawaii offered them his guava cake recipe which had been a hit with the local community.
After some tweaking of the formula, Aki arrived at what now is one of the most popular and respected specialty cakes in the Bay Area.
 
Faithfull customers have sworn by the taste, that they will do most anything for it. One customer ordered two sheet cakes then drove all the way from Sacramento and back with his treasured delight.
 
One local customer even sends a taxi to pick up an order
when he’s unable to come in himself!
