Time Out says

One of Chicago’s oldest family-run businesses has operated out of the same storefront, distinguished today by its vertical neon sign and quaint painted lady facade, since its establishment in 1911. Today it’s a good all-arounder, with doughnuts and danish for breakfast, and a wide selection of cake slices and cookies (many in Chicago sports team motifs) for dessert.

The best bakery in town, I'm in here at least once a month, I order all my cakes from here. The best tasting, the best designs, the best custom cakes. I would always recommend this place to anyone

For many generations, they have stayed constant and have never changed the greatness, kindness, and love they show their customers. I had the pleasure of meeting John in person and he took pictures with me and my sister, daughter and kids, and was very pleased that I make it a point to go there every time I get up that way from Texas! I lived above this wonderful establishment when I was a kid and never forgot the joy I always got for my birthday, Buttercream Cake with Pineapple filling~~And no one anywhere has ever come close to the taste!

Roeser's Bakery has been baking sweets for more than 100 years, so buying a cake or cookie is like purchasing a (sweet) piece of history. The family-owned business has perfected its recipes (a century of practice helps) and cooks up some of the most delicious baked goods that you can find on the Northwest Side. Grab a number, take a look through the case and don't feel guilty about buying one or two extra treats to take home.
