MMMMMMM....Gemma Rae's !
If you live in or near Hales Corners...a suburb of Milwaukee and have not treated yourself to a tasty breakfast, lunch,dinner or bakery selection from Gemma Rae's Cheesecake Café ....you are really missing something ! Pressed for time...and wanting to bring something special to a party....we headed straight to Gemma Rae's at 5311 South 108th in the shopping mall just south of Edgerton Avenue. We knew that there would be just the fresh home made never to be duplicated kind of tasty dessert we could not find anywhere else...and were not likely to find in our own kitchen with spring market having arrived earlier than usual. Not that I can pretend to have the same talent and good taste as Gemma Rae's...no matter HOW much time I have ! It is a friendly neighborhood place where the owners show their pride in the menu they select...from the selection to the eye appeal....breakfast omelets, an appetizer, fresh salad or sandwich that includes Italian specialties...sausage, meatballs and eggplant parmesan. Served with your choice of home made fried potatoes or Italian potato salad. Dinners include Sicilian steak or chicken, lasagna, eggplant parmesan, mostaccioli or spaghetti...all with home made sauces...fresh bread...and melted cheese if you please...a requirement in Wisconsin !
Just in the mood to give in to your sweet tooth...you came to the right place...a spot of tea or coffee and a home made cannoli will answer your appetite. We choose itsy bitsy bite size cheesecakes not much bigger than a chocolate with cherry and blueberry preserves. The red, white and blue patriotically served the party crowd who raved about the light flavorful little bites...creamy and light ...one was just never enough to satisfy anyone....understandably!
You will find Gemma Rae's open Tuesday -Saturday 8 am - 8 pm and Sunday 8am to 3pm. Come in for a taste treat you will long remember.....Or discuss what you might like made for your next special event and be surprised at the wealth of suggestions that you are offered to insure your party is a HUGE hit !
Gemma Rae's is old time hospitality and pride in a business they love calling their own...Tom and Joann Rader, the owners say that their secret ingredient is love...and you will love coming back for more of their special menu and bakery items.
If you can't resist the great food...and wonderful atmosphere...you will soon find out that this is just one more reason why we have chosen to call Wisconsin home for a lifetime. If you are looking to call the Badger State home...upsizing or downsizing...call us...Sally and David Hanson...we'll give you the prompt professional service you deserve for all things real estate.
