Disappointed in Dinkel's

I have been a loyal Dinkel's customer for 17 years. Unfortunately, the past 4 years have been very disappointing, and I have stopped going there altogether, except to order the one cake I know they won't screw up - and that is the White Rose Cake! (It is delicious!) The last two birthday cake orders were screwed up entirely. In fact, I had selected a birthday cake from the website and, to my dismay, when I went t... view more

BEST CAKE and BEST BUTTERCREAM in CHICAGO!

First of all I have to say that my husband and I just moved up north from North Carolina. We went to Dinkel's (after a friend recommended them) to order my birthday cake. I loved all the designs, and even though it was my 31st birthday I ordered a DOLL CAKE! Needless to say, this was the most beautiful cake I have ever seen...BUT WHEN WE TASTED IT...man o man...PURE BLISS! I have NEVER in my life had such wonder... view more

horrible owner

I ordered a cake for my son's birthday and the owner acknowledged the mistake with the order but was very rude and would not give a refund. He called two weeks after the problem and offered a 10% discount on my next cake! He was cheap and did not care about losing business. My friend just ordered two cakes from there (not knowing my experience) and I thought the chocolate one was bland. The vanilla and chocolate was ... view more

Very Nice

If you are in the L&B area, stop in for a loaf of bread or some pastry. This place is one of the last old bakeries and it is yummy!

Bad Service

I was very disappointed in their service. I wanted to order a cake to feed 200 adults. But I wanted to taste it first. I could not taste the cake. If I am paying for a cake that feeds 200 I deserve to taste the cake. So, I took my business elsewhere. They lost my money and I will not consider them again. \r

Not as good as it used to be.

I was very disappointed in the bakery butter cookies I bought last week. I bought a box that was prepacked and sitting on the counter. They were stale and many of them were broken. I used to come to this bakery quite often about 15 years ago and went out of my way to come here for cookies for a special occasion. I was ashamed to serve them.

Can't beat the cupcakes - or, cakes!

The atmosphere inside reminds me of the local village bakery in smallville, USA. The frosting is unbelievably wonderful! I haven't tasted every baked item they offer - my waist line won't allow it - but, definitely give the cupcakes and birthday cakes a whirl...you won't be disappointed!

Walking back into the Roaring 20s

This bakery is the best one in the city. You walk in, and it just feels like home. The cookies are so delicious, they'll melt in your mouth. When ordering cakes, the staff is friendly and the cakes are delectable!! The smells that emanate from Dinkel's remind me of my grandmother's kitchen. A definite must visit!!! Though, they shouldn't change their cookies so often, the butter cookies with sprinkles are my fa... view more
