Friendly service and really good donuts! We only get over there to visit family but it's always fun to stop in. Great new location

Patricia S Hansen

Sue Russell

Great bakery!

Lori Vick

Fantastic service and wonderfully prepared baked goods of every description! A carrot cake with golden raisins that was scrumptious!

adam anderson

This has always been the best bakery in town. When I come back from Colorado I always stop in for thumbprint cookies and chocolate coffee cake. Their wedding and birthday cakes look incredible as well. Last time in, I saw a birthday cake that was shaped like a dinosaur head sitting upright.

Ron Quilhot

Always the best get some "thumb prints" or a pastries are wonderful.

Merinda Nehrkorn

First time here...very impressed with both the staff and the selection!! This will become a ritual stop when I visit!!

Mary Butterfield

I LOVE Trefzger's Bakery for their white cake with their famous white frosting. They also make the BEST coffeecakes ,cinnamon rolls and cookies. I can't say enough good things about this bakery .... everything is good! They have moved to their new location which is larger with places to sit and enjoy your treats. Don't miss out.

Wandza Taylor

Wonderful service! And always great baked goods!!. Thank you for great service Trezgers Bakery!!

Nicholas Kerker

Everything from Trefzger's is delicious. Whenever we have a birthday to celebrate you can guarantee that the cake will be from Trefzger's.

Kim Frans

I've been going here since my HS graduation cake. Birthdays get these delicious cakes. Every once in awhile we stop by for cookies. Love the new spot!

Pam McCasky

Yum. Love their coffee cakes

Sue Brooks

Quick service today!! Birthday cake is beautiful. Cinnamon rolls look great!!!


Great prices on a basic cake & if you pay in cash you get a small % off I think it’s 3%

Karen Grigsby

My favorite bakery. Everything is so fresh and yummy.

Angela Vecchio

I love this place! They've been around for years and with one visit it's easy to see why! Yum Yum Yum!

Jeannette Grove

My favorite chocolate covered macaroons!

Baylee David-Foster

I love trefzgers! I have been going here since I was a child. They have the best frosting on planet earth!!! I always get the orange chiffon cafe, thumbprint cookies, and sugar cookies with lots of frosting and they are amazing every single time! The new location is nice also and the quality of the baked goods is just as good! The cakes are always beautiful and fresh. If I ever move away from this area, I am going to fly here at least 3x a year just for their amazing cookies. I think that I’m seriously addicted to their frosting and I really don’t eat sweets that often. Now that I’m writing this review I’m probably going to have to stop in today because I’m starting to crave more. I recommend this place to everyone! Even if you don’t like sweets that much, you have to try this place!

Michelle Hamann

Trefzgers cakes are at the center of every special event we have. They are not only beautifully decorated, they are the most delicious cakes in Central Il. We live in Bloomington but drive to Peoria several times a year to pick up these wonderful cakes. The staff is always very friendly and they go out of their way to make sure you are delighted!

Miranda Simpson

14 dozen cookies & few dozen muffins for a benefit & they came out perfect, on time, and ahe helped me load them up without even asking. All baked good were delicious & gone❣

Dale Miller

Great cupcakes!

Lee Stein

Selling duck cookies all proceeds to Center for Prevention of Abuse.

Karen Myer

The food is fabulous. The employees are happy. The location is close to home. The prices are reasonable. I highly recommend this place to family friends and Neighbors.

Heather Phelps

Beautiful bakery! Super tasty treats, it's like a legit bakery, not a donut shop, or a cake business, but an actual bakery! It's pretty casual inside. It's old farm house style mixed with some modern flares. If you haven't been there, let's just say it's a must go to spot in Peoria.

Don Johnson

Evrything,s great, that,z all i got

Carol McGlasson

Had ordered Christmas cookies and went to pick them up. As usual, I end up buying other cookies too. Staff very friendly and helpful. Other than the fact that I spend way to much money, it is well worth going in this bakery!!

Coltyn68 Davis

Really good cakes

david chikahisa

Best bakery in the four or five county area I've ever been to.

Sandra Langfels

Awesome people! great cake!

Jason Brooks

Very unhappy with how they treat customer's, they never make enough of the goods i like, they make what they feel like if they run out oh well to bad, lve never seen a successful business ran this way, very anti customer atmosphere.


So many good things to eat. Excellent as always.

Konrad VanDerBurg

Always a good experience when getting yummy treats here.

Will Hagler

Clean, well organized bakery. Also have gluten free items.

Dana Prather

I've never had an item from Trefzger's that I didn't like. The thumb-print cookies are addicting!

Alicia Kessener

Very friendly and good service. The treats are so scrumptious! Our favorite is the mixberry pie with lemon in the crust.

Don Lewis

I love their cakes. Can't beat them, but the other goods are just so so to me. Very pricey to boot. Very popular establishment going back decades.

Garrett Rickard

Great bakery in a really cool restored old warehouse building with exposed brick.

Cathy Chamberlain

Wonderful! Danish are tasty. Thumbprint cookies are excellent. Almond bear paws are yummy!

Larry Swanson

Fantastic baked good with great service

Tony Ellison

It's the very best bakery around the Trip county area. Go early or place and order and pick it up. The only real cream horns in town. If everyone ate a cream horn and didn't like it, well it probably as just a cheap copy. When I tell your they're busy I mean waiting to park and it's like that all day. Do ourself a favor and go there as soon as you have time.

Arno Prohaska

Nice people around here, good coffee

Cara Hanson

Cake, cookies, donuts....oh my!

One of Peoria's favorites! Pies, cakes, cookies, breads, and rolls are all delicious, baked daily on-site. They also can do customized orders for parties and special events. Highly recommended!!

Like always the best.

Anthony Franklin

This is a full service bakery. It has everything you could desire in baked goods. From donuts, cupcakes, muffins, and bagels to breads, loaves, and cookies to pies, tarts, and cakes. The variety and selection is ginormous. They have signature coffees and teas as well as standard beverages. The atmosphere is very open and nice; this is a working bakery so don't forget to take a number so you get served. The seasonal displays are very interesting.

Mary Kamp

The best place for sweets.

Gale Bridgewater

Outstanding Products and a very Friendly Servers.

Renee Jackson

This place has the best bakery goods! I was raised on trefzgers thumb prints, roll twists, caramel pecan rolls & buttery danishes! They also have the best cakes around!

James Meyers

My family used this bakery exclusively for decades until I picked up a birthday cake for a very dear friend and picked up a frozen cake. The dedication on the icing was barely acceptable and the frozen taste unacceptable. When I complained I was met with indifference. That was my last purchase at that establishment.

Jermaine Smith

Cookies always good

Craig Fowler

Hey truly amazing bakery! I am

Eric Ebert

Excellent as always. I could eat everything here and not look back.

Charlotte Rodgers

Wow if you have not been here for baked goods get up right now and ho. The food and staff are amazing

Jeanmarie Gordon

Best cookies ever! Got grandson's 1st birthday cake. Adorable and delicious.

shellie slaight

Really neat place! We go here frequently for special occasions or once in a while for a fun treat. I rate them excellant...but prices are pretty high for what they are selling...just saying.


To me they are over rated. Sorry everybody else.

Brian Matheny

Love the selection. Amber served me and she was kind, patient and polite


Beautiful facility for wedding and reception! Attended a 200+ event there this weekend and was very impressed.

Lauren Hanson

Trefzger’s made our wedding cake, and we could not be more pleased! We both grew up in Peoria, so we knew we wanted Trefzger’s for our wedding, but we could not have imagined how great they would be! We met twice with Martha and talked to her several times on the phone, and she was SO helpful and so sweet! She even made a custom cake flavor for us, because we really wanted champagne cake with a strawberry jam filling. She made a sample for us to try, and it was AMAZING!! We ended up doing a small cake in the champagne & strawberry flavor, as well as 2 other cakes with different flavors and fillings, as well as a groom’s cake, and there were maybe 3 slices of cake left total at the end of the night—people LOVED all the flavors, which were all delicious, and we’re still getting compliments on the cake! Martha and her team delivered the cake to our Princeton, IL venue the day before the wedding so our florist could decorate it, and they worked so well with our venue and coordinator to make sure everything was ready to go! We’re so happy we could have our favorite bakery as part of our wedding day, and we can’t recommend them highly enough!!

Karen Morris

It's a bit pricey and has no atmosphere, but there food is amazing.

Sarah GC

Absolutely love this bakery! The thumbprint cookies are my ABSOLUTE favorite, I have fond memories of trips to Trefzger's with my grandparents (nostalgic and not sorry!) and this bakery has made so many important events: birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, baby showers and bereavements...extraordinary by the way they incorporate love into everything they do! Keep being you!!!!

Ray Sheers

Delicious and perfect for treats for an office party or a bite alone.

J Davis

Great service, easy to order online, delicious!!!

shelley twitch

Just moved to town and a friend brought me here. The molasses cookies are terrific as well as the danishes!

Bob Everett


chris bruce

Great treats!! Very helpful and friendly staff!!

Jesse Monday

Great for all your bakery needs!

Michele Lohnes

I bought a lot of cupcakes for my office and the gal that helped me was very patient and very nice. This is the best bakery around!

Steve Weber

Excellent bakery. Busy most of the time so take a number and brouse the great selections of sweet treats, good coffee too.

Micah Lavender

The treats are good, but what makes them the best is the one time we thought our cake wasn't fresh enough they took it back and made it right without a fuss!

Molly J

It's a Peoria thing. If you grew up here, they're the best cakes and cookies anyone has ever baked. I didn't.

Leah Hughey

I learned about Trefzger's through my Uncle Terry. It is his absolute favorite place, and now I'm hooked.

D thurm

This place is a favorite of ours to meet with friends, have coffee and share a pastry. They also serve pizza and quiche, which make a great lunch. The coffee is also very good. The counter staff are all very attentive and quick in filling orders.

Shastri Ram

Trefzger's Bakery is a hidden little gem in the Peoria Heights area. Their cupcakes and pasties are absolutely delicious. I especially love their lemon pastry. I love the fact that everything is open, so you can see the work being done. The service is also great.

Pamela Horn

This place is heaven on Earth for those with a sweet tooth.

Rothgar Robertsson

Did you know you can get a beer here ? A beer made with bread from here. You get a slice of the bread with a schmear , and a Beer !

Jim Chase

Ordered a cake for my daughter's baptism and got some coffee called to bring to work. Always great baked items and really nice atmosphere

Debbie Kinate

A beautiful cake had been ordered for a 70th. birthday. It was delicious!

Cecily Johnson

I don't know what on earth these people think but I go in with my children have them pick their things out get all excited she packages them all up and then afterwards tells me their card machine is down.... why wouldn't you tell someone this ahead of time... left my children very upset. For a company to be this big in peoria and then have something like that go over its kind of amazing.

Robert Wagner

The freshly baked pastry treats are tasty. Get there early and get yourself a number. The staff is friendly and helpful. I paid $13 dollars for 12 dozen assorted danishes.

John Christian

Best bakery in Peoria(Heights) for cakes and cookies. All products good, prices moderate to high. Pick a number when you go in.

Heather Mccarthy

Love this bakery. Just like my Grandmother used to make!

Walter Lembeck

Best bakery that I have been to in the Peoria area. Really loved the doughnuts as well.

rick ewing

We catered there very helpful and acomaditing

Ryan David

Since 1861!!! Come early if you want your pick of the coffee cakes!

Lori Luthy

I ordered a 2-tiered chocolate wedding cake on fairly short notice. They were very accommodating. This cake was gorgeous. It was much larger than I'd envisioned. Each tier was 3 layers of chocolate bliss. Chocolate curls and chocolate strawberries on each tier. Everyone in the lobby was remarking about it when they brought it out to show me. They boxed it carefully and carried it to my car for me. The gal worked with me to get it to fit in the car on the front seat. It arrived in perfect shape. This was the best chocolate cake I've ever had! We hated to cut into it since it was so beautiful. It tasted even better than it looked. Wish I could have eaten more!!!

Bob Costin

Was just okay for me. Nothing special and nothing bad. Got 2 donuts a muffin and lemon treat and 2 drinks was $10ish. But would go back if someone else pays but not highly recommended

Amy E

Got a cake for a friends birthday. She loved it. Service is always great. The place is always busy, so call ahead if have something specific you want. While picking up the cake, we had to pick up a few things for ourselves! The absolute hands down best thing we got was the 3 berry coffee cake! The coffee cake was so good, it was all gone in 1 day. They will be moving locations soon, I think its a worth visiting for sweets lovers.


WOW!! We just visited Trefzger's in the new (huge) location!! This bakery is amaaaazing. The old refurbished warehouse type building is beautiful with seating to eat inside. The selection is unbelievable, and everything we had was delicious. I just about hit the floor when I saw VEGAN soup was being offered. Thank you so much for making an effort in that direction!!! We will definitely return to this bakery. I hope you enjoy another century doing what you do best Trefzger's!!!

Kinsley Mora

The service here is better than most. Mood here reminds me of San Diego's scene.

Anita Atchison

The nicest bakery ever. Have been to some of the best in Chicago and this is superior in choice and product. So much to try and it will amaze you to just see it.

Tim Dejarnett

Everything is great you can't go wrong.

Charles Werry

My first visit was a very nice surprise. Beautiful building inside and I really liked the open format. I wanted to take everything home. And the cheese cake was delicious.

Bill Griffin

Great baked goods!

Cindy Reynolds

If you're on a diet...keep out! A wonderful array of pastries & oh the lovely cakes. I grew up with my family going to Trefzgers every Sunday for the wonderful donuts & rolls. Our special birthday cakes all came from Trefzgers & for holidays, the brunch table held a wide variety of everything from those light airy french donuts to the many flavors of coffeecakes. If you want great quality and consistency, be sure to go to Trefzgers. This new building is so much larger & accommodating than the previous one, and you'll find so much more on display to tempt you. I always buy extra for the freezer since I'm not in Peoria often. Nice flat parking & handicap accessible.

Jackie Warner

Get a cake every year for anniversary.... they have the moistist chocolate cake, and awesome coconut macarons

The Chocolate Chip Danish rolls are to die for! The Sunflower cakes are adorable for celebrating any event and the icing that is used is way sweet. Perfect for the sugar junkie. Everyone should pay them a visit. Do not be afraid to wait, it is well worth it. Just breathe deeply and enjoy.

Everything there is always delicious.

Andrew Noyce

Great local bakery, exclusive and original items.

Tom Murphy

Very helpful and friendly staff

Joe Chovan

Where do I start? Best thumbprint cookies ever! Can't go wrong with any of their coffee cakes. I can eat those all day long. Their donuts are light and fluffy. Their cake is very very good as well. Everyone there is generally nice and polite.

Meagan Sieg

Hands-down best bakery in Peoria. They have a very long history in the area, and that doesn't come easily (Does it play in Peoria? Yes, Trefzger's does!)! ALL of their baked goods have unmatched taste, texture & flavor! They're so good, they don't need to advertise!

Linda Holborow

Everything looks so awesome!! I wanted to try everything. Had a cream horn and a cherry turn over. They tasted as good as they looked. Everyone was very nice and helpful. It was nice to be able to watch them make their creation. Keep up the good job. I will definitely going back to try other items.

Sarah Schlink

They have the best cookies and danishes!

Scott Campbell

Very Nice, Fast, and they have the Best Pastries, Pecan Sticky Buns, Cookies and Cakes!!! If you have never had Trefzgers, then you don't know what you're missing!!! If visiting Peoria or Peoria Heights you've gotta try!!!

Latisha Marks

Tasty treats and friendly service.

Glenda McCawley

Love this place a favorite for cupcakes & cookies & the best coffee! They are a very nice place to enjoy fresh baked treats with your friends! Friendly service too!

Emily Reed

This bakery has been a family favorite for years and years. I absolutely love your cookies and cakes. My grandma lives in Washington and has been driving over for your goodies for as long as I can remember! My birthday cake when I came to visit was beautiful and delicious.

Renee Spradlin

This is the second best bakery in the world. The first is a small bakery in Kitzingen Germany near the main shopping district. I have never gotten anything here I was not pleased with and the special order cakes are always delicious.

Ken Parkhill

Top notch food and service. You want good pasties and excellent quality, this is the spot. Do call ahead for cakes and special orders

Katherine Birkel

They did my wedding cake and it was PERFECT! Just like I asked for, and it was so delicious! Chocolate with raspberry filling, everyone was giving compliments. The regular bakery is also excellent: muffins, cookies, coffeecake etc. Why are you still reading this you NEED to go there!

Irfan Anees

The bread they sell is hard and smells stale. The price is way to high for stale food.

Steve Jackson

Best bakery in Illinois.

Melanie Eddy

Loove all there food

K Bergeron

Beautiful bakery, delicious assortment, terrific service. ♥️

Thad Adams

I went in to this place with the idea of being able to walk out content, sweets in hand. Besides the new location being difficult to find, the customer service seems to have gotten way worse. During the holidays they need to have an employee assigned to a separate register so that the customers who want to purchase a single item from the inventory on the floor, (for $50.00), don't have to wait in line. People are busy during the holidays and don't have time to stand in ANOTHER line.

Greg Yearian

Good service, but high prices and did not like most items

Eboni McNair

Wait time is why I gave 4 stars instead of five. I also believe the numbers should be placed by the door so customers can locate them immediately as they come in.

Gretchen Taylor

Always the best birthday cake !!

Tobi Allsup

Amazing cakes & desserts

Sandy Schneider

Best around!!! Has been for many, many years!!

Cara Murdoch

Oh my! What can I say? Ordered a red velvet cake for my daughter's visit. It was moist, creamy, absolutely wonderful! Their signature frosting is the best! Fluffy and delicious!

Katchya Innis

Itrefzger's has great Bakery items. The staff has always been very polite as well and they always have numerous people working. There is a little wait due to it is always busy, but it is worth the wait. They do have top notch bakery good so the price reflects it. The price is the only down side.

Sharon Eeten

Very pleasant.

Anna Stinauer

We used Trefzger's for our wedding cakes. We were blown away by their professionalism, efficiency and punctuality. I knew I wanted 8 inch mini cakes on each table, and with over 400 people invited, we knew this wouldn't be an easy task. I went to them knowing they were probably the only people who could make 30+ 8 inch cakes and deliver them, AND make them delicious. I tried many cakes but we ended up going with Red Velvet to match our colors, which was not even their most delicious in my opinion. However, on the day of, they were perfect. We did "naked" cakes, and this can get pretty detailed, as we still wanted some icing on the cake. We paid in advance to do a practice run of the cakes, and she even let me pick the different kind of gold sprinkles to go on (yes, there are many different kinds). We worked with Martha the whole time, and she was quiet, but so precise and detail oriented. Honestly, I figured something would go wrong on the day of but no, each cake was perfect. The main cake we cut into was beautiful as well. We let guests cut into their own cake, and had people rave about how delicious it was all night. If you pick Trefzger's, you will not be disappointed.

Jennifer Morrison

Amazing bakery! Wish they had the giant chocolate chip frosted cookies all the time!

Nathan Diamond

Clean, spacious, and plenty to offer for your sweet tooth.

Laurie Lamb

Food is amazing. People are always friendly. Atmosphere is nice. I feel like it's reasonably priced for being a fresh-made, special-order bakery. Little steeper than grocery store bakeries but so much higher quality. Hats off to their cake decorators who always make beautiful artwork of the cakes.

Marvin Smith

Ordered a Birthday cake on line no less was ready on time and it was beautiful and oh so good.........
