At the base of the Ko'olau Mountains, Robin Petersen and her team of gardeners coax blooms from flowers as well as nourish vines, shrubs, and trees. They, and others, have contributed to the care of the 20-acre farm since 1978, when Robin's mother, Sharon, planted the first seeds.
Although the gardeners at Sharon's Plants often work with professional landscapers, they welcome beginning gardeners. They'll happily lead visitors through their inventory, and they can advise on topics such as which plants to use for privacy or what species of bamboo to serve at a panda wedding.

Animal-lovers at Calvin & Susie cater to four-legged customers, stocking premium chow, toys constructed from safe materials, and an array of wag-worthy gear. U.S.-made and durable toys such as floating throws, chews, and stuffed animals entertain dogs, and kittens can paw a Fling-ama-string cat toy ($30) or muse over back issues of The New Yorker. Calvin & Susie’s homemade treats ($7) incorporate crisp, human-grade ingredients and come in pooch-pleasing flavors such as peanut hearts and bacon bones and strips. Happy hounds dip muzzles into premium dog food, such as Great Life dry buffalo kibble baked without filler and animal byproducts ($47/17 lbs.). Bubble Shack dog wash ($12/16 oz.) and Nordic Naturals pet supplements ($15) maintain coats healthier than Olympians' track jackets, and shelves of gear for birds, fish, and bunnies keep smaller pets well-stocked with tasty nibbles.
The pastry chefs at Regal Bakery work hard to never stop surprising their customers, whether with bold new donut flavors, such as rocky road, berryblast, and green tea, or brand new foodie trends. Hot on the trail of the cronut craze, they created their own version of a croissant-donut and even experimented with bite-sized croissant morsels, dubbed “crototts,” which can be dipped in chocolate sauce, azuki bean crème anglaise, or bronze to put atop crotott-eating trophies. According to a profile of the bakery in the “Dining Out” section of the Star Advertiser, Regal Bakery stocks more than 20 donut flavors at a time and revives popular flavors from their past on Throwback Wednesdays.
