This is an AMAZING bakery, the first second I walked in the first time I knew I had found a hidden Omaha gem. You can actually smell the fact that they use the best quality ingredients in the air. And boy I sure was not disappointed. I have been back many many times since then, and tried almost everything, I have never ever been less than 100% pleased. I do try all the gourmet bakeries and shops in Omaha and this is the best, hands down. I find the shop help extremely friendly and helpful and they are always ready to answer your questions and even custom make orders for you. Tomorrow I am bring an apple cranberry coffee cake to work. I know folks will love it and it's a great value. This is bakery even better than I remember from my childhood and with apologies to my Mom, the best baking ever!
I love Pettit's. Everything there is awesome and their cakes look like the show Cake Boss! The staff is really nice and patient, which is helpful when taking three rambunctious children there! Every other doughnut I have eaten gets compared with Pettit's and usually comes out lacking. The frosting on their cake doughnuts is awesome. Reminds me of my mom's homemade frosting from my childhood. We used to go there every Sunday after church and grab a dozen glazed, which are not my favorite, but they are so good I would eat them anyway. Awesom local business I hope can stay running forever.
My wife and I moved from Omaha about 6 years ago. Three years ago I was back in the city for a family reunion. I made a special trip to the Market just to enjoy again the finest pasteries in the Midwest. For your information, that pastry traveled from Omaha to Milwaukee to Tampa to Holiday, Florida. Just so my wife could also enjoy the taste once more. To me, her opinion of Delice holds high regard since she is a true Europian. Looking forward to the next trip back to Omaha, just to enjoy the pastries.
