about  us page banner

Cacao Sweets & Treats is a natural, organic, made-from-scratch bakery. We specialize in unique takes on classics, all made in small batches right here in our Grayslake storefront. We use nothing but the best; real butter, real chocolate, organic dairy and eggs {how food should be}. It may take a bit more time and effort, but the little touches are what matter, like making our own peanut butter and vanilla extract, for example. Take a peek into our windows and you will see us baking our amazing sweets fresh every single morning. Our philosophy is quality over quantity, with the old school idea of get it early, get it fresh. If something strikes your fancy, we suggest giving us a call at 847.223.2253 to reserve it for you before it is sold out!


Cacao Sweets & Treats was founded in July of 2009. After many years in the restaurant industry, catering to friends & family, and dreaming of “one day” having my own little bake shoppe, it was time to start offering my favorite hand made treats {recipes since junior high!} to everyone with an online presence. On May 24th, 2013, my husband and I opened our boutique brick & mortar located at 122 Center Street in downtown Grayslake, Illinois.
