How can I praise the gals at the Short Giraffe enough? They were amazing and just wonderful people! We went for our tasting and tried a dozen different things it felt like which all tasted great. Everything was made from scratch and tasted great and the price was not expensive I was shocked! We had a hard time picking flavors... More

The Short Giraffe happens to be a bakery. But you will never find another bakery like this one. The owner dreams up the most delicious and unusual combinations imaginable. Should you visit this bakery, you greatest frustration will likely be which pastry to select out of the vast assortment. If you're in Sarasota, you've got to visit this place. The... More

Excellent desserts. Really my favorite in town. I wish there was a store front so I could just pop in and buy one cupcake here and there. I highly recommend them for birthdays, weddings, etc.

Without a doubt, The Short Giraffe is THE best bakery I've ever experienced. The croissants are to die for-so flakey and buttery; the scones are the best I've had; the chocolate chip cookie sammie's melt in your mouth. You can't go wrong with anything you choose! I can't say enough good things about the decadent treats you will find there.... More

Short Giraffe has the best cupcakes in town! I highly recommend the cookie butter cupcake, and strawberries & champagne is a close second. We also got my daughter's birthday cake here and it was amazing. Unique, beautiful ribbon-frosting and moist delicious cake. The best!

Thank you for the delicious wedding favors! We chose these delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches to hand out at the end of our wedding reception at the Powel Crosley, the guests loved them. They looked beautiful on display and tasted wonderful! We stuffed a bunch in my husband's pockets so we could have for a late night snack.. They packaged... More

I am very glad that I found this cute little bakery. I love that it is a small local business that has a wonderful selection of pastries. I came in last minute looking for a birthday surprise and they helped me pick an assortment of small pastries that will be great for the birthday dinner. I am also thrilled that... More
