REVIEWS OF Vesecky's Bakery IN Illinois

Matthew Jerkovic

Being bored and raised in the Berwyn Cicero area. It is one of those places that time is stopped because the bakery taste just as good today as it did when I was there as a child.

Rick Fronek

Very friendly bakery with a great selection of coffee cakes, Donuts, pastries,danishes and breads. Visited on National Bakery Day!

Sarah Osinovsky

I’m in love with this place! I remember an old delicious bakery in Cicero named Minariks. This is of the same breed. Just delicious food and I loved it’s smell here, look, and bread and pastries! Very courteous service as well!


Bought pastries 2 weeks ago, and the quality is not good any longer. Plum kolachky round grew a mold only 3 days after purchase. Tossed. Poppy pastries were dry and tasteless. Don't waste your money or time there. Will update if they change.

Jean Karp

Saturday mornings at 6 with mom back in the 70's❤️❤️. Cream filled coffee cake, butter pound cake with tons of fudge frosting that was so good we cried! Their salt sticks, pull apart coffee cake, kolachky, etc.... SO UNBELIEVABLY GOOD!!!!! The ladies in there would always give my sisters and I cookies while we waited. One of my best memories, Vesecky's in BERWYN!!

Emily Payne

My grandparents and parents took me here and I still go here. It is the best bakery ever! Everything is fresh and the "hotdogs in a bun" are the BEST!

Observed a roach crawling around the open pastries. I tried to mention it to the ladies behind the glass that there was a bug crawling around the food but they acted like they didn't hear me so the roach just kept on doing it's business. Sad to see because I've been going here with my grandma for over 30 years now and never once would of expected to see that level of cleanliness.

Joanna Carr

The best bakery I've ever been in. We plan any trip to Chicago around the bakery visit. I buy for family and friends. My husband family lived in the Berwyn neighborhood and this is always the highlight of our trips back.

Heather Thiesing

Great service, Great bakery. my parents get it all the time. Never been disappointed. If you have never been to Vesecky's Bakery, you should definitely go.

F Garcia

Still tastes the exact same as what I grew up eating 30 years ago from this bakery. Was thrilled to bring my son, who is 5 years old, here during his first visit to Chicago (we live in Atlanta). He was a little disappointed that there wasn't really anything in the cases to choose from (showed him pictures before going), but understandable since we showed up 20 minutes to close. Glad we got plenty of cookies and a loaf of rye bread. He loved everything. Might need to discuss getting some baked goods shipped to us. Plenty of great food here in Atlanta but not a single Czech or Slovak restaurant or bakery here. Closest were get is a German bakery an hour away. Did find a Czech bakery in Birmingham but not nearly as good and it's a 3 hour drive.

Joan Derrick

Great selection of baked goods

Erica Heavner

This is the place for Hoska, Rye bread & The BEST kolakcys you will ever have. I'm an apricot kolacky fan myself but the others are amazing too!

Edith Rodríguez

Fantastic paczki, impeccable service, wonderful establishment

Jason Girard

one of the best and oldest family-owned Bohemian bakeries in Chicago. best paczki around. if anyone says otherwise, let them taste the (seedless) raspberry, fresh strawberry or vanilla custard. who has room for apple, apricot or poppyseed?

Danny Wallace

Fresh handmade bakery

Tom Vascik

Annual pilgrimage for Kolacky and hot dogs in a bun never disappoints.

Alicia McNamara-grott

A friend who was in from out of town asked me to pick up her favorite things from here and that they closed at 5. As I left the house I saw the website and they closed at 4. The young lady waited till I got there! Not only are they very nice, my friend from Michigan adores their baking!!!

Josephine Ruggirello

Cathy Tokarski

The best houska anywhere!

David Domabyl

Absolute Heaven

I am curious about ethnic cuisines and different cultures. I looked for bakeries in the area, and this one stand out in google maps. It does not stand out if you are driving past, but I certainly recommend you to stop and try it out. However, you must go early in the morning if you want to catch a selection. We went two times around 10:30 am and the lady kept telling us, the best selection is early in the morning. They are open I believe at 6 am. Even though, we try their hot dog wrappers, the poppy cake. I felt in love with their sweet bread with golden raisins, they sell it in small or large loaf, and they can machine slice it. Sooooo goood!. I also love their buns with inside pudding (they remind me a little of the Swedish school bread, because they are just a little sweet but not at all overwhelming). The apple turnover is very good, but very sweet. Be aware! And the amazing chocolate with white cream swiss roll, sold by pieces, is AMAZING! We bought pastries and bread before venturing out to see Chicago so we were not desperately hungry. Their prices are very, very affordable. Must try!

After my great grandmother passed away Vesecky bakery became our families fix for all the great pastries we grew up eating. To this day I can remember the smell as we opened the door and stepped inside. I often crave a hot dog in a bun more so because it takes me back to my youth and all the safety of childhood. Thank you Vesecky for being part of my life, you are truly appreciated and cherished by so many of us.

Jim Jones

I bought cookies and a cheese coffee cake and it was spoiled or they gave me a lemon cake I had to throw it in the garbage and I think it was like $8 the cookies were awesome but now I'll never be going back

Susan Mika

Delicious bakery, hotdogs baked in a roll, yummy.

Jim Strnad

The BEST Houska around. I love their salted horns and they even have PRUNE kolacky!

Dominic giafagleone

Great little bakery, not the best paczk but damn good. Also enjoyed the Polish sausage roll

There's nothing like going "home" for some tasty childhood memories.

Allen Zriny

Too much good bakery! Not a very large choice but a lot of variety of very good delicious pastries, breads and other bakery.

Sheila Scudieri

It's still original family run in a neighborhood I grew up in 40+ years ago. Same traditional recipes that have kept this a mainstay despite the changing area. Well worth the drive even if you move out of the area.

Brent Bernal

Great bakery! Everything is made fresh daily from the donuts, danish and pies to the houskas, Apple slices and hot dogs in a bun. Do not pass this place up! It's a Berwyn gem!

Paula Pacente

I live in Montana now---for the past 20 years. My grandmother and mother used to take me there when I was a child in the 1950's. Every time I return to Illinois I call ahead and place a big order. They are very special as it's one of the few old-time bakeries left that I know of. Nothing I know of can compare to their quality. Going there is one of the best memories of my childhood, and in 50 years I've never been disappointed with their products or service...

best bakery around

Cheryl Gename

Grear pastry

Jim Williams

Lots of flavor in everything without all the extra sugar great Sloviakan baked goods

Mary Ng

I can't eat too many treats for medical reasons but I take my mother who grew up in the neighborhood, about once every six weeks for their famous how ma bread, which she freezes and eats slowly. She also orders a lot of round, cheese kolotckees or the Bohemium apple strudel. She is 90 and not diabetic and she said her mother and her grandmother made these pastries every Saturday and they taste the same.

I grew up going to this bakery. Live in Idaho now, but always bring baked goods home. They do have the best Rye bread and coffee cakes.

a bakery has been around for over 30 years. Maybe the last in the Berwyn area. A classic Taste of Home.

Eduardo B

Old timey European bakery. Every thing is fresh and delicious .

Peter Danta

Went there to purchase some goodies for an Easter celebration with my mother to be held at my grandparents house in Indiana. The unfortunate part of the trip was that they were out of lamb cakes, but we did manage to buy multiple loaves of bread, a fruit cake, and several delicious kolaches (I'm not sure if that's the right spelling). I would recommend this bakery, but remember to call ahead early to place an order for a lamb cake.

James korinek

I have been going to Vesecky's since I was a kid back in the 40's. Still the same great bread's and Danish, kolach, yum!

Carmen Vargas

The ladies behind the counter don't know what they are selling. Bought a birthday cake which she said was vanilla with strawberry filling. Turned out to be chocolate with cherry filling. She said they had peach coffee cake, bought one, it was pineapple. Disappointed.


Mirian Villa

elroy jetson

My family has been going to Vesecky's for over four decades. So good--like Grandma made. The bakery: rye bread, kolaçky, and hot dog pig-in-a-blanket all superb. But the multi-fruit coffee cake and hauska are like religion at our table. Walk in the door and breathe deep!!

Martin Scarbrough
