We've been asked many questions over the years. Here are a few Q & A's to try and help you out.
What is the difference in the categories of the coffee cakes? I'm looking for a specific flavor!
If you are looking for a specific flavor or cake, try the search bar above the categories! We currently have 5 different categories in our store, each grouped to make it more efficient for you!
- Specialty Cakes: Our Coffee Cakes designed for Special Events or Occasions! (You'll find the Chicago Cubs Cake or 4th of July Cake here!)
- Premium Cakes: Our Coffee Cakes made with 3 or more Ingredients/ Flavors or Our Boston Line! (This is where you'll find Coconut Rum and Caramel Apple Pecan!)

How big are the coffee cakes? Are there multiple sizes?
Our cakes are all the same size, and they are 9 inch round cakes.
Are your cakes shipped fresh or frozen?
Our cakes will be shipped fresh at room temperature.
How long does it take to ship my cakes to me?
Our cakes generally ship the same day you place your order. Then, depending upon where you live, you should have your cake in about 4 business days. *During busy times (for both the USPS as well as Dave's Coffee Cake), please allow a little more time when ordering! During the Holiday Season, orders may arrive a week (7 days) after the order has been placed! Thank you for understanding!*
Can I freeze my cakes once I receive them?
Yes! This is an important asset of Dave’s Coffee Cake. You may freeze your cakes for a 90 DAYS OR MORE in the package they come in. If you have cakes in the freezer, just pull them out an hour before you are ready to eat them and pop the lid!
(Please do not refrigerate a Dave's Coffee Cake! The refrigerator does nothing to preserve the cake and may decrease the shelf-life of your cake!)
What is the shelf life of Dave’s Coffee Cakes?
The shelf life of Dave’s Coffee Cakes on the counter (room temperature) is 12-14 days, or they can be frozen in the container they come in for 90 days or more. (Please do not refrigerate! Refrigeration may lessen the shelf life of Dave's Coffee Cake!)
I have a mild allergy to peanuts, but your Nutrition Label has nuts listed. Most of your cakes don't have nuts in the name. Is it safe for me to order?
If you have an allergy to nuts, we strongly discourage from ordering a cake. Since some of our cakes contain nuts and we bake all cakes in the same building, we cannot guarantee a cake is nut-free. However, if you do not have an allergy but just dislike nuts, we have a wide variety of nut-free flavors! (Our list of nuts used are: Walnuts, Peanuts (Peanut Butter Chips), Pecans, & Almonds!)
Boston Cream is one of my favorites, but I can no longer find it online! Can I still buy a Boston Cream Coffee Cake?
Yes! In order to ensure the quality of our products, our Boston Cream Line has been removed from our Online Store. However, you can still buy them at our events, or pick them up in Rock Falls, IL!
I am interested in Wholesale. How do I go about this?
We do not wholesale! Dave's Coffee Cake is a Family Owned and Operated business, and our cakes are made to sell directly to the customer. Dave's Coffee Cake is a small, family operated bakery, and we are not licensed to sell to businesses or individuals to resell (as whole cakes or as slices)!
I’m responsible for corporate ordering. How can I order in bulk?
We want to help you! Call us directly at (815) 201-1155. You may also contact us using our contact form, and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
What are the Nutrition Facts and ingredients?
