Alotta Brownies is a true-blue neighborhood bakery where glass cases reveal sweet morsels of handmade decadence. The inviting confectionery is owned by New York native Michelle, whose former stomping grounds had her baking cakes for the sweet-toothed likes of Madonna, Mary Tyler Moore, and Yoko Ono. She and her lovingly prepared sweets migrated to the Midwest, where a 100-year-old sugar-cookie recipe mingles with more than 20 varieties of brownies and bars and a full menu of edible rewards. If you don't see your consummate confection, opt to customize a cake. Choose the filling, layer-count, frosting, and decoration, such as an eight-inch, three-layered creation smothered in cream-cheese frosting for $29.

Named business of the year in 2010 by Heritage Nebraska, patrons sit down at the Heartland Cafe for breakfast and lunch amid traces of local history inside a building constructed in 1919. In this setting, diners dig into fresh-made pancakes and made-to-order omelets, conversing and creating new memories. The quiche florentine brims with bacon, spinach, and mushrooms baked in a housemade pie crust and covered with hollandaise. For lunch, the cooks whip up reuben sandwiches, fish ‘n’ chips, and elk burgers. Heartland Cafe's owner, Sharon Janovsky, was also named 2012 business person of the year by the Western Douglas County Chamber of Commerce for the cafe's active role in the community, such as hosting the annual tree lighting ceremony.
The Donut Professor uses locally sourced ingredients to create fresh donuts, pastries, and muffins every morning. With 37 varieties of donuts ($0.99 each; $9.29 per dozen) ranging from garden-variety glazed to elusive vanilla peanut, The Donut Professor offers a full catalog of fried, doughy treats. Éclairs, fritters, and cinnamon rolls ($1.19) satisfy partisans of pastries without holes. All locations open at 6 a.m., mere minutes after fresh donuts come into being, giving night-based vigilantes and day-faring caped heroes a place to eat while comparing notes. If the full amount of the Groupon is not used in one visit, The Donut Professor will issue a gift card with the remaining balance.
Shari Preister started Cuppycakes out of the goodness of her heart; she whipped up a batch of gluten-free cupcakes for a friend with a gluten allergy and discovered with relative ease that baking was her calling. She expanded the operation from her kitchen to a storefront space and soon earned a nomination for best cupcake from the Omaha World Herald. With such acclaim, there was no turning back.
Now the bakery makes more than 50 flavors categorized as spicy, fruity, naughty, and fresh that build on the classics or incorporate seasonal trends. Some of these get their inspiration from her sister, a drink mixologist in California. The results translate into Shari’s unique set of cocktail-inspired flavors such as the Margaritaville—margarita cake, key-lime filling, and frosting studded with crushed pretzels. She also makes traditional flavors with a twist, such as the 14 Karrot, a walnut-studded carrot-cake cupcake with cinnamon-cream-cheese frosting. Customers can special-order gluten- or nut-free delectables or drop by on Fridays when gluten-free cupcakes are prepared each week.
