Even though I consider myself a good cook/baker, I'm not good at decorating a cake. So every year I order my kids cakes here. I always get the strawberry filling with butter cream frosting. YUMMY! \r
Riverside does a great job. I've never had any problems, the cakes always look great and taste just as good. \r
The store is pretty small, and it's always packed when I go there. You can go and pick yourself up some pastries or fresh bread before you go to work to share with your co-workers. They sell cookies, eclairs, breads, cakes, and donuts. \r
The store always has several workers behind the counter, so you'll never have to wait very long.\r
I think this is really the only self-standing bakery in McHenry unless you go to the bakery section in the grocery stores. Give it a try.
