Duke Bakery has been a staple in town since I was a kid. I still have the chocolate, chocolate birthday cake for my birthday every year. I love all of their cakes (fabulous carrot cake), pies, donuts, cookies (love the peanut butter and sugar) and pastries (amazing baklava and cream horns). Their sweets make any event special!!!

My family has been going to this bakery for years, everytime we are in the area, and it is always just great! The wonderful smells envelope you when you first walk in, which is one of the nicest things about this little shop! Every item we have ever gotten there has been great. I always buy extra breads for the... More

Duke's Bakery has been around FOREVER. They are the nicest people and have a great selection of any bakery goods you could want. We love their pies and donut holes and biscuits. Their prices are comparable to other bakeries. What makes them so special? The people who own and sell the goods. They are so personable. the owners are very... More

Haven't lived here for more that 35 years but always reminisced about the bakery goods from Dukes. Visiting this week, I talked my mom into stopping to pick up some items for a cookout. I bought 4 items, 1 cherry crumb pie, a package of ginger fruit cookies, a dozen confetti sugar cookies and 3 meringue cookies. Not one of... More

No matter how many times I have been to Duke's I always get hard, stale cookies. It doesn't matter if you ask which are the freshest, I think they only bake once a week. I have finally decided that I would rather make the drive to Collinsville to Kruta's where I have never been disappointed that to ever set foot... More

Living nearby we can walk here and get delicious donuts. The kids love to pick their own. The prices are good and everything I've tried was great.

When I was growing up, Duke's was always the after-church stop on Sundays! Tried a loaf of bread shortly after I moved back. Whole top of the loaf was speckled with mold in less than 24 hours. Someone screwed UP!

Duke Bakery has been around for something like 50 years, and for good reason! I have yet to have something bad from there. I used to live a few blocks from the bakery and visit the place every time I'm in town. It's so cool to experience a real neighborhood bakery like they used to have. They have very convenient...
