Cookies are delicious, nutritious (if they are slices of cucumber instead of cookies), and most importantly, delicious. Bite into the real thing with this Groupon.

The West Side Bakery
The fondant petals of a magnolia flower cascade down the face of a cake, fading from white to violet to midnight blue. Bunches of white roses burst from the top of a quintuple-layered, frosty white cake. Singular and elegant, cakes such as these have earned The West Side Bakery a variety of awards, including a spot among The Daily Meal's 50 best wedding cakes in America.
Though custom cakes are The West Side Bakery’s specialty, pastry chefs apply the same meticulous standards to other award-winning baked goods. They bake seasonal fruit pies, craft peach hazelnut tiramisu, and make more than a dozen varieties of cheesecake. Pastries run the gamut from simple shortbreads and biscotti to éclairs and cannolis. Additionally, the shop touts a huge vegan menu that includes vegan cakes and tarts.
Patrons are welcome to take a seat at one of the cozy shop’s tables and devour their treats with a cup of cappuccino. If, unlike the cookie monster, they can’t justify eating dessert for every meal, they can also grab a tasty sandwich, fresh salad, or bowl of hot soup.
