Drizzles Bakery: Home of the Donut


You may have driven past Drizzles Bakery and not even have noticed it. On the outskirts of Bellevue’s Old Towne area, Drizzles is a tiny bakery that you might blink and miss. Here is a word to the wise: don’t blink and miss this place. This is an exceptional bakery.

More than once I’d been asked by people if I had yet visited “that small bakery in Bellevue.” Had I known there was such a thing as a baked banana donut with chai frosting sprinkled in chocolate I would have visited Drizzles much sooner, but I suppose it’s better late than never.

Owner Mary Pat Guerrier opened Drizzles in June 2012. She’s baked her entire life, as is evident by her original Easy Bake Oven on prominent...

Pizza Pleasure

Before I get into my review, I’d like to send a message to my friend Chandra who told me to tell her if she should try Ragazzi’s Pizza since it’s so close to her job. Yes, Chandra. Eat at Ragazzi’s. Eat there every opportunity you get, and when you go, invite me to come along.

Now on to my review. Ragazzi’s Pizza opened in June and was a dream come true for owner Jeff Daley. After working as the director of operations for Old Chicago for seventeen years, his wife grew tired of listening to him lament about how he wished he had his own pizza place. “She told me to either do it or quit talking about it,” Jeff laughs. A smart businessman (and apparently a dutiful husband), he took her...

As we celebrate the season of thankfulness, the Dish Team writes about what they are most thankful for in regards to our Omaha food scene. Happy Thanksgiving. 

I am thankful for diversified dining becoming more apparent here in Omaha.  When I first arrived here 5 years ago, there were only a handful of diverse restaurants, now we are choosing between dozens. I love being able to eat Thai, then Indian, then French, then Cuban and then even Food Trucks! Bring on the Food Trucks!!

-Danielle Herzog


I am thankful for pie. Plain and Simple.

But I'm also thankful for beer. Though I don't usually enjoy the two at same time, I love that our beer scene is full of gems here in Nebraska....

Harvest Cafe: For A Reason

Walk into Harvest Café in Lakeside Hills and you feel it. You feel that this restaurant is a bit different from others. This one has emotion to it. I didn’t know the story behind Harvest Café before I walked in, yet I could feel that there was a great deal of heart and soul behind it. My first view was of the fireplace which has a small picture frame of a beautiful woman in it. It almost feels like the woman is there to be your host – to welcome you to the restaurant. I now understand why. Tom and Tricia Sawyer were married for 19 years and in 2007, they began thinking about their dreams in life. That year, after Tricia studied culinary arts at Metropolitan College, and Tom left his...
