HOMEMAKER

SWEDISH BAKERY'S FRUIT GLAZE CAKE IS ONE OF THE BEST CAKES I'VE EVER TASTED, BUT I THINK IT IS OVERPRICED.

Highly recommened

Swedish Bakery made our wedding cake and did a wonderful job. Everything from the planning, delivery, to the cake itself was great. I would highly recommend everyone who is looking for a wedding cake to schedule a meeting with Swedish Bakery to see what they can do for you.

Good choice, but be warned!

Thanks to a beautiful co-worker who treated our office to many of the excellent items on the Swedish bakery menu, there was only one, I do not recommend, and that is that white-chocolate ganache (yuck!) One of the nastiest cakes I've ever tasted.

Amazingly great bakery...

Nuff said. Been around forever. Was attracting crowds before the New Andersonville. Expect to wait at peak periods...a testament to their deliciousness.

Best Bakery on the North Side

Swedish Bakery is the best bakery on the North Side, hands down. The cakes, the fruit tarts, the petits fours, etc., are all freshly made with the finest ingredients, fresh fruit, and real butter. It is easy to see why this place has been a favorite for generations. Stop by and buy some treats for your sweetie, or a killer dessert for when you entertain.

Missed the mark.

I was amazed after visiting the Swedish Bakery as to the low quality of the pastries we purchased. After hearing about how good everything was, I left feeling cheated.

Incredible Pastries...

Swedish Bakery has been around for a very long time. And for as long as I can remember this Bakery iss the best place for dessert. I actually got my wedding cake from here and till this day I still have people say our wedding cake was the best cake they ever tasted... Don't think twice about this place for dessert... IT REALLY IS THE BEST... Especially the Chcolate Eclairs... Yum Yum...

Best Cinnamon Raisin Bread

The cinnamon raisin bread at 'Swedish Bakery' in Chicago's Andersonville neighbourhood, stands alone as the best in the city. If you want to be really decadent, use the bread to make french toast (or is it 'freedom' toast:).

And if you are celebrating a birthday, order their glazed strawberry cake with the birthday message written on a strip of green marzipan.

Be prepared for a lengthy wait, as the line can be fairly long.
