Sweets, Shopping + Coffee

Sweets on treats on coffee and cute home decor?! Yes, please. I have the uncontrollable urge to yell “BRUH” at the top of my lungs because seriously let me tell you how adorable this tiny bakery and boutique is. I know I say this about everything I post on my site but…I’m obsessed.

I guess I should probably tell you where you can find these dime pieces right?! Downtown Grayslake (hidden in the Lake County, IL area) is the residing location of both these amazing places. Cacao Sweets & Treats is a bakery filled with cupcakes, cookies, breads, delicious coffees, and so much more! The old-fashioned, rustic, yet elegant decor resembles boards pulled straight out of Pinterest. The floors, the seating, the calligraphy – every detail is simply put, pretty.

On the opposite end of the building, around an alley, is the equally stylish boutique filled with home decor and gifts. Blacksmith & Co. is a recent addition to this little town but it definitely doesn’t seem to have trouble fitting in. You can see the correlation between the bakery and the owner’s vision for the store. Each are unique in their own way but have similar characteristics such as natural elements like plants, woods, and antique style furnishings. This spot will definitely be on my list to visit during the Holiday season!

Here are a few photos just in case you want a feel of what they have to offer…

Cute huh?! These are the November vibes I’ve been looking for. I wanna know, what’s your favorite boutique, coffee shop, or small town destination?! Leave a comment below telling me where you’ve been loving to visit!
