Before the invention of desserts, diners had to subdue post-dinner hunger pangs by roasting swan-shaped napkins by candlelight. Enjoy sweets without the soot with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of cakes and more at Le Cakery in Elm Grove.
The creative chefs at Le Cakery whip up a variety of made-from-scratch cakes, tortes, and cupcakes using fresh ingredients. The cozy, neighborhood bakery offers an extensive menu of sweets, including signature tortes ($24.95–$64.95, 6”–12”) such as the scrumptious strawberry crème torte, where layers of chiffon cake and strawberry mousse hide beneath a suave coat of Italian meringue buttercream. Specialty torte ($29.95–$79.95, 6”–12”) orders, which require a 72-hour notice, come in flavors such as rich german chocolate and red velvet. With unusual choices such as white chocolate raspberry, peach bellini, and chocolate peppermint, Le Cakery's exquisite cupcakes ($2.50 per standard sized cupcake) make a tasty treat to share with friends and family or use as a replacement heart to revive a Care Bear in critical condition.
The bakery also boasts an assortment of bite-sized pastries, such as mini eclairs ($2.75), lemon bars ($1.95), gourmet brownies ($2.95), and cheesecakes ($1.75). Call Le Cakery to get a price estimate for a custom celebration cake.

- Although small, Le Cakery offers a comfortable atmosphere akin to sitting in someone's kitchen over a cup of coffee or lunch. Compared to numerous other coffee shops I have drifted in and out of lately, Le Cakery takes the pace down a notch and focuses on homemade menu items and unique coffee combinations. – Erin Gannon, OnMilwaukee.com
- The staff is always friendly and helpful, and the cakes are beautiful. – accogatzke, CityVoter
