Sweets and Treats

Rocket Baby Bakery is home to a wide variety of tempting treats.

If you have a sweet tooth, you’ve come to the right place. From classic French pastries to frozen yogurt, you’ll find the treat that you’re craving in Wauwatosa.

Treat yourself to decadent dessert at Le Réve Patisserie & Café. Classically trained pastry chefs create treats like crème brulee, chocolate mousse, macarons and more. Ultimate Confections is the must-visit spot for chocoholics. Enjoy high quality chocolate in celebration-appropriate forms, plus truffles, toffee, chocolate-covered strawberries and more.

In need of a bakery? La Tarte is a neighborhood bakery and coffee house offering tempting pastries in a charming atmosphere. Get yourself a cup of Valentine coffee (another local business!) and enjoy a treat from their pastry case. If cheesecake is what you crave, you have to try Simma’s Bakery. Best known for their award-winning cheesecake, mornings in Tosa wouldn’t be complete without this local institutions “morning buns.” Gigi’s Cupcakes is baking cupcakes, cheesecakes, mini cupcakes and cookies with a changing menu each day. Stop in to find flavors like chocolate covered strawberry, pink lemonade and white midnight magic.

Rocket Baby Bakery has quickly gained a reputation for its local artisan treats. Try a traditional croissant or muffin, or go for the local favorite “Breakfast in a Muffin” – an entire meal with egg, bacon, cheddar and more baked into a muffin. For another breakfast option, don’t miss the famous hand-cut donuts at Cranky Al’s (celebrity chef Alton Brown called them the best he'd had on the road in 2015!), along with handmade muffins, scones and other breakfast favorites.

For a cool down, stop for delicious frozen treats right in the heart of the downtown village. Both Baskin Robbins and the self-serve frozen yogurt shop YoMama are located within steps of great restaurants and shopping.

Also now open in Tosa is the Corner Bakery Café at the Mayfair Collection, the first Wisconsin location of this popular chain. Coming soon look for the opening of Indulgence Chocolatiers, also serving Purple Door Ice Cream.
