BEST PASTRY SHOP IN CHICAGO!!! 12/2/2008

I absolutely love this place. I walk there every morning and I am always greeted by name and with big smiles. The staff is so friendly and accomodating, I have never had a request they didnt fulfill. I got a beautiful cake for my dads 90th birthday and the party of 100 ppl went crazy for not only the taste but the gorgeous decorations. I highly recommend this place for everything from coffee to chocolate,to birthday cakes. This is a can't miss shop. Pros: friendly staff, amazing cakes, great morning pastries more

Inferior product and rude staff 4/13/2008

After travelling over two hours to visit this pastry shop, I was so disappointed by the quality of baked goods. The Chocolate cupcake was dry and the fruit slice was underbaked and not no fruit flavor. I was standing beside the cash register to pay and an sales person asked if I would like her to hold my chocolate, when I said , ""No thank you"", she said, ""It will melt"" in a very rude tone and turned her back. more

Superior Cutomer Service and Hospitality 3/27/2008

While we simply experienced the coffee and warmth of this wonderful little candy store, we were simply overwhelmed with the direct friendliness and small-town hospitality of Sarah and her staff, whom personally came out and talked with us about her establishment. Their graciousness and hospitality were overwhelming, offering the warth of her store while we awaited the opeing for which we were town. Based simply on her hospitality, and the appealing appearance coupled with the mouth-watering aromas from her many displayed products, I will certainly include this store on my itinerary on future trips into the city and will certainly recommend her products to my friends here in LaSalle and Grundy counties. more

delicious 7/10/2007

A wonderful shop: forget cakes made from your local chain grocery store. Sarah's has cakes ready to take home, while also providing a call ahead service where you can custom order your cake. You can get everything personalized, even something you just purchased. The cookies, pastries, candy, and cupcakes are also to die for. You HAVE to taste the buttercream frosting. Pros: great service, delicious desserts Cons: only one location more

Best buttercream frosting! 11/24/2006

I have to say Sarah's Pastries and Candies has the best desserts in town. I especially enjoy their delicious and creamy buttercream frosting. It melts in your mouth. Matched with her delicous cupcakes, it is by far the best dessert in Chicago. more

Delicious Treats! 11/18/2006

I absolutely adore Sarah's Pastries & Candies. Whenever I am in the area I make a special trip to Sarah's for one of her amazing cupcakes (and usually a chocolate chip cookie as well!). Her buttercream is outstanding and I love that she fills the center of her cupcakes with extra frosting. I have had many cupcakes in my day and Sarah's are my favorite by far. Sarah and her staff are delightful and always friendly. This is a fantastic find in the Gold Coast and a great place to indulge! more

Best brioche in town 11/16/2006

If you haven't had the luxury of enjoying one of Sarah's warm rasberry and chocolate brioches in the morning, you must indulge. A true delicacy and testament to her background in french pastry school. Sarah's refined taste in combined ingredients provide a product that is truly unparalleled. more

DRY CUPCAKES 11/13/2006

Cupcakes are horrible, dry cake and adverstising buttercream frosting when it really tastes like whipped frosting. Was very disappointed and she went to pastry school for this????????? I've had far better cupcakes from amateur bakers. more

Sarah's is wonderful! 8/14/2006

I love Sarah's signature candies. The combination of chococlate and the crispy's is so delicious. I would recommend this place to anyone...a local or an out of towner visiting Chicago, trying to get a taste of the best the city has to offer! more

BEST CARROT MUFFINS EVER!!!! 7/27/2006

They have a heavenly texture as well as a perfect balance between sweetness and spice. I always make sure to save some of the frosting for the last. I wish I had the recipe so I could make it at home. Also....if you get a cupcake or a carrot muffin, be sure to ask about the ""cupcake"" card because when you buy 12, you get one free ( I've already filled up 4 cards buying these wonderful muffins for my business associates!!). more

By far the best in the city! 7/27/2006

This cute little candy shop is on it's way to stardom. The location great, the candies and pastries are out of this world! more

Best chocolate in the city! 7/27/2006

Sarah's Pastries & Candies is the cutest shop in Chicago. Even from the outside, you can tell it's going to be a great experience. The white picket fence blocks off tables in the heart of the city (on Oak St., between State and Rush) - definitely a great place to grab a dessert and coffee and people watch. Once you walk through the door, you are greated with the friendliest faces and the most amazing aroma of CHOCOLATE. My favorite chocolate is milk chocolate royaltine - it is milk chocolate mixed with crispy Feuilletine wafer pieces and caramelized almonds. SO DELICIOUS. It was voted one of the top things to eat in Chicago by Time Out magazine. Pros: Great chocolates, pastries and location! Happy employees! Cons: None! more
