If you've ever visited an old-fashioned bakery, then you are undoubtedly familiar with the sensation of being enveloped by the warm, rich aroma of fresh-baked bread and pastries, and the tantalizing appeal of beautifully arranged and lip-smackingly sweet confections. There's no other experience quite like it,and that is just what you can expect when you visit our bake shops.
Our experienced bakers arrive at our stores early each morning -- long before sunrise -- to begin mixing up fresh bread dough, bake pastries, and decorate cupcakes, fruit pastries and sheet cakes. Most of our bakery recipes date back to our grandmothers and were first introduced to customers more than 35 years ago a tour first bakery, Minos Imported Foods. You will always find scratch-baked breads (made several times throughout the day) because we believe when you take our bread home it should still be warm from our ovens.
In addition to dozens of everyday breads and sweets, our pastry chefs have loads of experience creating specialty items for any occasion. If you are looking for a special occasion cake or pastry tray, or simply need to make certain that we have four dozen fresh bratwurst buns on hand for your backyard barbeque, our bakery staff stands ready to serve your needs. We love special orders, so please don’t hesitate to ask for any bakery item you may require.
Do you have someone in your home who suffers from gluten intolerance or celiac disease? We can help.

Sweet Ali’s Gluten-Free Bakery in Hinsdale and our Burr Ridge store are partners in sponsoring the Hinsdale chapter of the Gluten Intolerance Group, and we are excited to be able to offer fresh gluten-free baked goods seven days a week.
