Dessert is the natural conclusion to a meal, much like an explosion is the natural conclusion to every community-theater production. Give your dinner an exciting finale with this Groupon.
$7 for $14 Worth of Baked Goods and Pastries
Order an award-winning dessert in advance, such as the signature cheesecake ($17.50 for a 4"x6" cake). The light, creamy creation features a thin layer of raspberry filling, a chocolate-cake bottom, and is fully coated in ganache. For a smaller bite, browse some of the display-case treats, which may include goodies such as freshly baked honey buns ($2.15 each) and éclairs ($2.95 each).
Simma's Bakery has been a Milwaukee staple for 30 years, and its decadent desserts have shared more laughter and tears than a soap opera about birthday clowns. The mom-and-pop shop was founded by Simma Yundov, a woman who immigrated with her husband and two children to the United States from Russia in 1979. She built the bakery from the ground up, making a name for herself and touching the lives of countless people. After her death more than a decade ago, Simma's daughter carried on her mother's work and recently passed the brûlée torch to Mark and Peggy Carollo, who, Veil magazine, have years of experience in the family-run bakery business. Today, the walls are covered with awards and recognitions—tributes to Simma's legacy. The bakery was named one of the The Knot's Best of Weddings 2013 vendors, a top Wedding Cake Designer in the Shepherd Express Best of Milwaukee 2012 awards, and has been a winner or finalist in CityVoter's Best Cakes category for six years running. The shop has also been voted the Best Place to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth in 2012 by both the editors and readers of M magazine.
