Have a sweet tooth? Head to Roeser’s Bakery
Nowadays, you can pick up a pastry at almost every corner in Chicago. Whether you’re in Logan Square or Fulton Market, between Michielin-stars or a neighborhood sta, a bakery is bound to be nearby. However, there is a certain one with the charm, elegance, and history that makes it stand out from the rest—that happens to be Roeser’s Bakery, the oldest bakery in Chicago.
For over a hundred years (yes, you read that right), Roeser’s has been delighting Chicago patrons with their delicious treats. Opening in 1911, the bakery has undergone several changes, but the best parts have remained the same.
Their cakes are out of this world, and while things have changed in a hundred-plus years, their ingredients and recipes are why Roser’s Bakery continues to be beloved by everyone who stops by.
What they’re famous for is their customized cakes—and you can get one for about every occasion—birthdays, weddings, graduations. We’re sure a cake, specifically a Roser’s Cake, enhances any celebration.
However, if you’re not dying for a slice of cake or don’t have an upcoming celebration, don’t let that stop you. For anyone with a sweet tooth, they have coffee cake, pastries, cookies, pies, breads—really just about anything you’re craving. So next time you’re near Humbolt Park, we suggest you hit up Roeser’s.
For the oldest bakery in Chicago, it sure knows how to get it right.
