“Superb Rating”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We frequented the Sweet House of Madness both mornings were stayed at the Grand Geneva Resort. The service was out of this world and the muffins and fruit cups were a great way to start the day!

“Best scones ever”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Tiny bakery next to Simple restaurant, but they have wonderful treats. Macaroons are gluten free. Scones are exceptional. Tiny shortbreads in interesting flavors - orange spice and hazelnut cocoa nibs, for example - are a highlight.

“Delicious!!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

The bakery was delightful. Tried many different breakfast items and they where all great. I want to order the coffee and have it sent to my house on a regular basis, it was the best. Will absolutely go back!!!

“Wonderful croissants and coffee!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

My husband stops at this bakery and brings home fresh croissants and coffee on the weekends. This bakery is one of the nicest places you can visit when you are in Lake Geneva.

“surprisingly good croissants!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Stopped in after breakfast at Simple next door. Bought almond and chocolate croissants, a red velvet and chocolate cupcake a blueberry-lemon danish and lemon poppyseed scone. The croissants were surprisingly tender, flavorful and not too sweet. Definitely did not expect a bakery like this in Lake Geneva- a place not known for its food! Cupcakes were moist and flavorful. The pastry was beautful to look at and delicious. Scone was tender, but a bit eggy in flavor. Bakery itself very spartan-no real decor, empty display shelves and wooden stools by a counter for eat-in. Not very enticing to sit down. Bakery also offers coffee and a few other cakes. Loved the croissants and pastry so much, we went back the next day to buy some to take back to Chicago. Just as good the next day and enjoyed them with coffee back home. Just found my favorite quick breakfast in Lake Geneva!
