Select Local Merchants

Break from the rapid beating of seasonal gingerbread batters and take refuge in a European-style café that has a variety of Thanksgiving meal-ending stomach-pleasers. For $8, today's Groupon gets you $16 worth of freshly baked bakery bites at Jay WaLe’s Bakery-Bistro, named 2009’s Best Bakery by The Pitch, and, unlike most bakeries, it's not also the headquarters of a cookie-gang.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.

Silver Spoons Frozen Yogurt's cool spread enraptures dessert devotees with low-fat and fat-free frozen yogurts and a cadre of 33 toppings. A rotating self-serve station sings siren songs to sweet teeth, stirring them to mix any of eight daily flavors, such as chocolate and mango sorbet, into a concoction with the dulcet power of an Oompa-Loompa labor union. Their hillock of yogurt safely secured in a cup or house-made waffle bowl, patrons peruse a toppings bar teeming with tempting add-ons, such as chunks of cookie dough and strawberry.

A three-time cancer survivor and mother of three, the owner of Naughty Bites needed something to make life a little bit sweeter. After tasting a traditional cake pop, and doing a bit of research, she was convinced she could improve upon the bite-sized treat. And so, she compiled recipes that emphasized natural, high-quality ingredients?think Meyer lemons, Sunkist oranges, farm fresh eggs, and fresh fruit?and created cakes-on-a-stick that were so moist and decadent, she named them Naughty Bites. The truffle-like treats are rolled, dipped, and decorated by hand, and come in a multitude of flavors that are anything but boring. The aptly-named No Plain Jane, for example, is a light vanilla cake with Italian vanilla cream cheese frosting dipped in white chocolate, just like the cake pops appearing on the Paris runways. The Chubby Hubby features a moist fudge center dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with peanuts and pretzels and drizzled with sea salt caramel.

The talented team of taste-makers at Barb's Kolache Bakery whip up a menu starring the versatile Czech pastry. Kolaches are created daily by stuffing yeast dough with a filling that may include fruit, meat, poppy seeds, or more. Colorful fruit-topped kolaches, such as apple, blueberry, strawberry, and apricot ($1.40 each), can flavorfy bland palates while inspiring fruit-painted murals of the cast of Sesame Street. Turn meat roars into meat purrs with savory kolache varieties such as sausage and cheese or bacon and cheese ($1.70 each). Or, pacify cranky taste buds with Danish melt-a-ways, an amalgam of buttercream frosting, pecans, and streusel inside a buttery, flaky pastry shell ($2.30), or icing-slathered cinnamon rolls ($1.90). Barb's Kolache Bakery is open 6 a.m.–1 p.m. Tuesday–Friday and 7 a.m.–1 p.m. on weekends.
