It is just a wonderful bakery. Have not gotten anything bad there. Service is great. A little bit of wait most of the time but they are well staffed so it is not long. Well worth the wait The best pastries ever. The cheesecake is my favorite.

Kruta's Bakery is THE most authentic bakery you'll ever hope to find. It's a 2nd Generation business, with the heart and soul of the true American Dream. Every delightful delicacy that you find at Kruta Bakery offers a delicious reward. Our favorites include the Apple Horn, Apricot Comb and the newly returned, Napoleon!! The Gooey Butter Cake is indescribably amazing!... More

I have just moved to the Metro-East area and many people recommended this bakery. Having grown up in a town that prided itself on polish/italian/greek cuisine/pastry, I was skeptical that this could compare to the memories I had as a child. I was pleasantly surprised, however upon my visit to Kruta's, Upon entering the store, I was greeted by the... More

We saw this place on Trip Advisor and had to check it out. We stayed in Fairview Heights for a couple of days but made it a point to drive over one morning for breakfast. They had a wide variety of regular and cake donuts, danishes, cookies and breads. WARNING, no chocolate plain donuts except on Saturdays is what the... More

I don't like cake but this is the only cake I will eat. Very good. Icing is not to sweet and tastes great. This is where we buy all our cakes. Love it.

Stand-alone bakeries are getting harder and harder to find, but this one is a gem. There is a large selection of breads, cakes, cookies, and specialty items. Everything we've had has been incredibly good. Definitely worth a visit!

Not sure why, but the wife loves the donut holes. Could be a nostalgia thing going back to her high school days, but none the less... I make the drive from O'Fallon, IL to grab some every so often. Cheescake is a little different and not as rich as what I'm used to - nice change of pace. NOT OPEN... More

We used to love Kruta's but it has really gone downhill. The last few times we've had birthday cakes from there they tasted like they had been frozen and rethawed to decorate, the cake was soooo dry you HAD to have ice cream to swallow it.
