Sometimes nothing sounds better than a little taste of something sweet. A midday pick-me-up, perhaps? Something to pair with that cup of joe? Fortunately, Oak Park has a variety of options to satisfy that sweet tooth. Here are a few of our favorite bakeries in Oak Park:
Sugar Fix Patisserie
Opened in 2011 by a pastry enthusiast who traveled the world to find the best hand-crafted pastries, Sugar Fix Patisserie offers European-style desserts that are fan favorites. While you might expect standards such as French macarons and handmade croissants, what you might not expect are unique twists on brioche and the ho-ho.
Patrons rave about the custom-made cakes, the delicious bread pudding, and – of course – the cookies and macarons. And you can feel good about your sweet treat since a portion of profits goes back to community non-profit organizations.
When only a donut will satisfy your morning craving, Firecakes Donuts has you covered. Using a longtime secret family recipe, unique ingredients, and locally sourced products, the “firecakes” are something special. Keep it traditional with a buttermilk old fashioned or triple-rich chocolate cake, or be adventurous with a candied-pepper bacon and maple long john or chili-lime mango. Customers call this shop “the Lexus of baked goods” – and with good reason. It is THE spot for unique high-end donuts.
Looking for a more refined experience? Perhaps a traditional afternoon tea at Serenitea Café would be just the ticket. After enjoying your tea and small sandwiches comes the best part – the exquisite freshly baked scones and preserves, lavender cookies, cherry cheesecake, and more. Customers love the full tea experience, quaint décor, and friendly service. It’s the perfect place for an afternoon with friends and treats.
The best part? All of these options are convenient to residents of the comfortable Oak Park Place community. Contact us today to learn more about calling our community home.Back to all posts
