Glazed sugar cookies, fluffy yeast rolls, pretty decorated cakes; this is what customers find when they enter O'Rears.  The sweet smell of fresh cookies and cakes being baked awakes the senses as your eyes devour the cases of decadent desserts.  There is always something to choose whether it is morning or afternoon from donuts to French fans to cupcakes!  Birthdays and special celebrations are the perfect opportunity to get a homemade cake to enjoy with friends and family.  To top it off, the staff is always smiling and happy to help you select the perfect treat for your day. [caption id="attachment_1849" align="alignleft" caption="Elegant cakes and cake pops!"][/caption] O'Rears has personally been a staple in all of our family dinners and holidays through the years.  They have homemade yeast rolls that are flaky and fresh, and with the addition of my mom's homemade strawberry jam; they are the perfect complement to a delicious meal.  My mother always stops on her visits to Lafayette to pick up a few dozen.  She even freezes them, and with a quick 5 minutes in the oven on low, they taste as fresh as ever!  If my dad is lucky, she will surprise him with a turtle brownie that he shares has the perfect blend of caramel, chocolate and pecans and is delightfully sinful!  Sometimes my mom will even make a quick stop at our house in West Lafayette, and drop off an Oreo bar for my husband, who would probably give up any food item except his Oreos.  (He is so spoiled!) Whether you are looking for delicious dining, interesting attractions and shops, enticing events or home away from home lodging—a getaway to Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana, is sure to satisfy.  For more information about this restaurant and others in the area, visit our website at www.HomeOfPurdue.com
