The two locations at this stylish cafe may be on the small side, but the winning prize here are the treats—Dutch stroopwafels, thin wafer-like waffles with syrupy caramel sandwiched between. The kids will likely gobble them up too fast, but parents could use this tip: rest them on top of your latte for a minute to let the steam soften them!
2030 N Willis Blvd
4523 NE Fremont
Available for takeout
This cafe slings donuts that are freshly made with unique toppings, sometimes with long lines winding out the door so don’t forget to bring your mask! The donuts are a delicious treat—covered in Nutella, jam, maybe even bacon, and perfectly sized for tiny hands and mouths!

Baker and Spice
A sweet neighborhood bakery tucked away in Hillsdale, yet only 5 minutes from downtown, this hotspot has long been a family mainstay for baked goods (check out the Cakery just down the street!). While you can also order lunch items like a turkey sandwich, you’ll most likely want to head here for the sweets—seasonal fruit hand pies, drop cookies, cupcakes, lemon tarts, and the Katie bun, a Danish pastry rolled with cinnamon, brown sugar and raisins. Eat in with a delicious coffee, or have the kids pick all their favorite to fill up a to go box.
