I think that all of you saying negative things about Delish and the owner are being entirely too kind. We'd have to make up new words to accurately describe that woman and her business. But... here are a few tips to enjoy your experience at Delish if every other single place in the world is destroyed and you must go there for something.

1. The customer is always WRONG!!! I have personally heard the owner argue with customers on numerous occasions. No matter what, if you have a complaint, keep your mouth shut... YOU"RE WRONG
2.Familiarize with the taste and mouthfeel of Crisco Shortening before you go. The "French Buttercream Icing" is 50% Shortening, based on the recipe.
3. Have the mindset that all of that shortening really is a good thing! The icing needs that in order to last a couple of weeks before it actually sells. The cupcakes should be fine with the amount of oil in it. I actually took a frozen one out, let it that, and played with it in my hands. It had the consistency of play dough, except very oily. Yes... This was after the cupcake was baked.
4. Have no high expectations for the Stumptown Coffee. The owner doesn't drink it, hates it in fact. She only added it to bring in customers after her move to a location with less traffic.
5. If you want a preview of their upcoming specials, visit every other successful shop in town the week before and give their specials a try. She trolls around facebook and the internet ALL DAY, literally, seeing what everyone else is doing. Then she complains about them, and says "I have a great idea for a special!"
6.Bring your grandma! She will absolutely love the space! You will want to vomit, but grams will be happy.
7. Do not visit TJ MAXX or Marshall's before going to Delish! You will see all of their retail items on clearance, much cheaper than after she buys them from those places and takes them to Delish, slaps a price tag on it for twice what she just bought it for.

Honestly, just don't go. This woman is a menace to anyone she encounters. Any past employee will tell you. Heck, even the current ones!

I took a cooking class here and was not impressed. You don't actually cook - you watch someone else do it. I can just turn to the Food Network to do that. They do have "hands on" cooking classes, but I will not be back to try one of these classes, because when I simply asked a question, I was told, "just sit and listen". You are better off trying classes at Auburn Watson.

I live in the Elmwood Village and love to support local businesses. We need more of them. I am not a review writer and i don't generally make negative comments about a business. However, I have to say in the many, many times I have been to Delish, the customer service is never overly friendly, and the owner who teaches a cooking class is outright RUDE. First, she called me "demanding" that I give her my groupon coupon number to confirm a class I didn't actually sign up for (the clerk must have listed our names when I merely called to inquire--but I went to it anyway). The class was last night. She was incredibly rude to a woman who was using her phone to email (due to a work issue) at the very beginning, barely before the instructor got started. (Now, we all know emailing/texting while you're supposed to be paying attention is rude in and of itself, but it was not disturbing the class, and most people -inclusing us- didnt know she was using her phone). So the owner called out this woman extremely rudely and embarassed her, so the woman and her husband walked out of the class. It made it VERY uncomfortable for the rest of the class. Then the owner had the gall to tell the class how ridiculous the woman was, and the owner's regular students agreed with her- which i don't get, but, they must know her and her attitude. Deb Clark (owner) was continually passive aggressive to the whole class, anytime someone would lean over to talk to a person she would stop the class, glare at them, or ask if they had "questions". This was very unpleasant. We paid for this class!! You shouldnt be made to feel "afraid" to look astray or open our mouths. Never again!

I took a cooking class with my daughter. LOVED IT !! So in Feb I wanted to buy gift cert for 2 couples for birthday gifts, I went to the website and was happy to see a 5 for 4 holiday gift cert sale. I callled the store and was told mockingly that deal was for Christmas. Why would I think it was for Christmas?? It"s Feb. She said "I don'y control the website" after a discussion I asked to have the owner call me. She returned my call with an unpleasant tone to start. She stated that this was a Christmas offer. Valentines isn;t a huge holiday but when you see a holiday sale in Feb, what else would you think of? So she said 3 times if I felt she committed such a grave error as not keeping up her website, she would honor it. I said you don't seem like you want a satisfied customer. She mumbled. I said I"m not interested in this after talking with you. She said, Goodbye. WOW talk about POOR customer service.

This business has very very very poor customer service. I am disgusted to know that this kind of service exists in an economy like today. I will not be supporting them in the future.

After reading some of these so called reviews, I feel compelled to write and tell you how wonderful I think Delish is. I live right around the corner and I believe I was their second or third customer when they opened over 2 years ago. I stop in there 5-6 times a week to pick up treats and cookies for my family. The staff has always been a pleasure to see. I am always greeted by name and with a friendly smile. Deborah knows all my kids names and as a business has supported causes that we care deeply about among several other local causes. She is genuine. Delish and their staff are real gem in the neighborhood that I'm happy to support.

I went to a cooking class last night with 3 of my friends and we had a terrific time. We have been to several classes (about once a month) and have never been disappointed. Deb and her helper Kathy bend over backwards to accommodate us...moving chairs so we can sit together and serving us a great glass of wine etc. The classes are always fun and informative and the food prepared is never anything less than Delish! We have all used the recipes at home with great success. Kudos to Deb and her staff for a job well done. I always stop and pick up some cookies on my way out, my husband would never forgive me if I cam home empty handed from a class at Delish!

Though everything is delish - from the molasses cookies to the fairy cakes - the attitudes and overall customer service has left me with a very very bad taste in my mouth. In Buffalo it isn't rare to engage your customers in a friendly conversation so that they don't really notice they're spending so so much on sugar and flour. None of that here. I typically get a half smile and a very light wallet.

THEN! I hear about a friend who buys cakes there regularly - at least 3 a week for clients - and the owner and staff gave her such grief about ordering a cake and not immediately handing over her credit card. Not only were they out of line about it, they collectively were beyond rude and condescending.

I understand 100% the pay-before-we-bake theory for those who aren't spending over $400 a month there on cakes... but for someone who is there weekly and they know by name? It's bad customer service and a bad business practice. In a small city like Buffalo, well, bad press spreads like icing on a hot cake. I won't return.

I find it interesting that everyone that sends a bad review to this site must be indulging in too much alcohol. I don't remember any waitresses serving an intoxicating level of alcohol. I think my wife had 2-3 glasses at the most. I attended a class about a week ago. I don't drink alcohol. I was expecting more of a social atmosphere where friends could talk to one another, participate in some class activities, and have fun. This is actually a cooking SCHOOL. No one talks when the professor "Chef" is speaking. I found her to be a little on the unfriendly side. She acted like it was a pain for her to answer questions. I thought the sign on the wall that said "EAT DRINK BEHAVE" was very entertaining. The food prep was interesting. I thought the food was only so-so. (better than I could cook though) Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend this to those in a good times party mood. This is more for people who missed their calling in life to go to culinary school.

First a positive, the lobster cookies are one of the most amazing things I've ever put in my mouth. Sugary shortbread cookie with the perfectly sweetened glaze. Second....I took a sushi class and I must say that the experience was both good and bad. Informitive however, I took the class primarily to learn to make sushi rice, after all the definition of sushi is "seasoned rice". Other then just cooking sticky rice in a pot, she never showed us actaully how to season or cool it properly. Being able to get a hands on try at rolling maki and summer rolls at the end was great but the premade sushi rice was undercooked and not very appitizing.

Love the place, love the owner, love the cookies. I was there over the Elmwood Festival of the Arts weekend and we had a GREAT time. Its so hard to choose what to have because everything is so beautiful. I ordered the Chocolate Toffee Cake and took it to a party. Its was a huge hit.

We had a bachelorette party here and it was great! The food was excellent and we all walked away with some helpful cooking skills and ideas. Debbie was very helpful when we needed it, but also let us go at our own pace. Great desserts in the pastry shop too!!

This was one of my worst food experiences ever! The instuctor of the class was completely unhygienic! She did not wash her hands once during the entire cooking class (even after handling raw meat, sneezing, touching her face and hair). She did not wear gloves in any of the food preparation, that she later served to us. She yelled to the cashier (who had been handling money) to come serve us, which she did but of course DID NOT wash her hands. The assistant had long hair dangling over the food. In serving us, the assistant dropped food on and into my purse.

The worst part is at the end of the class the instructor informed us she had many cuts on both of her hands from glass shards, but she still did not use gloves! Disgusting!

The instructor was also very rude and unprofessional. She reprimanded several students (adult professionals) for talking during the class. She was not receptive to questions and did not fully answer them.

My recommendation is to never go to a cooking class or eat anything from Delish!

PROS: None
CONS: Unhygienic

Delish is one of the latest additions to the 800 block of Elmwood Avenue. It is an upscale bakery with everything from chocolate chip cookies to elaborate cakes. Though delicious, you will have to pay for what you eat. A filled, frosted chocolate cupcake will cost you $5... with some heading in the $6 dollar range for one. For those who like to bake instead of buy their sweets, Delish sells a limited number of cooking tools and books. And if you need lessons in the kitchen, their second floor is a well-designed cooking school. Bon Appetit!
