WOW! 4/20/2010

I, too, having been a huge fan of Reuter's for a loooonnnnng time, yet to this day they still have the ability to amaze me. Recently I had a special event I wanted a unique cake for. While the hall said they would take care of it, I personally wanted a Reuter's cake as I know they are not only beautiful but always delicious. Richard went out of his way to design and make the most beautiful cake, matching all the colors perfectly......and then delivered it all the way to St. Charles and set it up on display and made sure everything was perfect. I only wish he could have heard all the compliments and praises from my guests first about how beautiful it was as they entered and then later about the outstanding flavor when it was served. It was the hit of the event! Thank you, Richard. more

Reuter's Bakery is AMAZING! 12/26/2009

amazing!!!!! got it as a gift from people in River Forest.. brought the cookies back to Indianapolis for Christmas and lets just say they were a HIT!!!! everyone was obsessing! The red velvet cupcakes were out of this world so was every different cookie on the tray we got as a gift. Literally, best cookies I've had in my life! The sugar cookies melt in your mouth, no comparison. Wish there was a Reuters Bakery in Indianapolis!!!!!! :)ps- the person who wrote that 1 star review must have a salt tooth and hate amazing baked goods... stinks to be them!!! more

My family has be coming here for at least 60 years. Generation through generation.Cookies shipped all over U.S.A. including Hawaii. Please keep making your wonderful bakery items.\r Quality far surpasses any bakery in Illinois. more

Excellent Bakery 1/12/2009

I have been calling Reuters Bakery my family baker for several years now. My husband's family had for decades. Even when we have my son's birthdays at restaurants, I always insist on being able to bring a Reuters cake to the festivities. Richard creates fantastic custom creations for us. Incredible depictions of Saturn, and Lions for example. Not only beautiful but incredibly delicious too. more

Even when we have my son's birthdays at restaurants, I always insist on being able to bring a Reuters cake to the festivities. Richard creates fantastic custom creations for us. Incredible depictions of Saturn, and Lions for example. Not only beautiful but incredibly delicious too. Pros: Excellent Cakes, great creativity, give him an idea, and let him run with it. Cons: You get what you pay for, so it is a little expensive.. but worth it. more

The best cakes in town 12/19/2008

We have not had a family celebration in 25 years without a Reuter's cake. Their buttercream icing is the lightest in town, melting in your mouth yet leaving no aftertaste whatsoever. Fillings in the cake are made from the freshest fruit. My wife will not eat a sandwich without a Reuter's roll, which has a crusty outside unlike the soft rolls you get at the supermarkets. If you get there early, and are lucky, buy a King's Tort, their version of a pound cake, but unlike any poundcake you have tasted. Their cookies are fantastic. Two more personal favorites are their Swedish flop and marshmallow horn. I recommendi ordering ahead, they might be out of what you want. I make a trek from Wheeling every month to stock up on their goodies. Their staff is friendly, and if you become a regular, will know what you want before you order. Pros: Service Cons: Too popular - might have to wait more

Owner puts sour taste to sweets 4/7/2008

I moved to the area in 2006, excited to have a local bakery that seemed to have all the charm of old world bakeries. Unfortunately, despite trying the products numerous times, we were disappointed. I wrote a review on an online site expressing the opinion and got this email from the owner: more

Alexander Torte 7/30/2007

My family has been shopping at Reuter's for almost 80 years. That's an indication of how great their baked goods really are. My recommendations for their "best of the best": Alexander Torte, Tea Tarts, fresh strawberry bismarks and stollen. Can you say "melt's in the mouth" and "worth every penny"? When we have a food table at work, I have been asked repeatedly to bring something from Reuters. One co-worker drives in from Hoffman Estates for their strawberry bismarks. I bake and decorate cakes - except for my own birthday. That one has to come from Reuters. Pros: quality of products Cons: parking more

Cakes= Greatness 11/2/2005

Reuters Bakery is so great that they make any cakes to excellent standards. They develop each cake to perfection and always top it off with a little something extra. I walked in and the cake smell was unbelievable. The price I paid for my cake was 25 bucks but the money was well worth it. I had real trouble finding parking with the always rush hour on grand ave. I even bought a few small brownies while I was waiting. Their samples were so great and they offered more and more to me. more

Yummmm..... 6/5/2005

Fresh. That is all that really needs to be said. There is nothing like fresh strawberries and whipped cream when the weather is -10 outside. I have gotne to this bakery several times and NEVER have I been disappointed. The service is great, very friendly! I have paid a different price for the cakes that I have purchased each time I go in, but it is always a decent deal. I just love this place and the desserts they make. They have even thrown in extras (a couple snack cookies..or a loaf of bread...) just as a courtesy. It is always a treat to get one of their cakes! more

great bakery very fresh and home made taste. wonderful service! more

You'll get hooked 5/24/2005

I never ate my own birthday cakes growing up & I used to say, "I don't like cakes made from a bakery". Until I tried Reuter's. I was at a bridal shower and everyone who ate the cake was raving over it. So, I tasted someone else's and immediately got my own peice. I brought a piece home for myself & mother. My mother could not believe it herself - me eating cake from a bakery. WE HAVE BEEN ORDERING EVER SINCE! I hope the open a location further south - soon :) Pros: Taste, Decoration Cons: Location more
