Must stop in while in alton

This is a family owned business and a must see in Alton. Friendly people and great food! Cream horns and glazed donuts are my favorites.

My first encounter with Dukes, 24 years ago was a disappointment and each of the five times I've visited since has been the same. A lack of flavor and freshness. As an amateur baker, I love to visit local bakeries, to support and encourage, to gain inspiration and to delight in the tastes and textures. Unfortunately, Duke's is not one... More

A staple in the Alton area, dukes bakery should be your 1st sop for sweets and bakes. Everyone leaves with a smile on their face and icing on their finger tips.

Love the classic recipes they use...and the modern spin on things. They have the best crème horns anywhere in the U.S.!!!

I have not been to Duke bakery in over 20 years - what a treat and their cream horns are still incredible! If you are in Alton or heading up the River Road make sure to stop in!

Dukes is a great small bakery in the beautiful river town of Alton, Illinois. I have been going there for years. My little girls love all the cookies and the pastries are the best. Stop in and try this gem amongst the bluffs.

This place was born when I was. Use to get donuts there in the 50s and 60s on Sundays after church. Alton / Godfrey is low on donut shops and backerries.
