Best local bakery of any I have tried.

When I pick up my grandson from kindergarten a couple of times each week, I ask what he would like to do. He always answers, "Dukes Bakery". When I ask him why, he says that they have really good treats. For all of my nearly 69 years I have not been able to drive past Dukes without stopping and... read more

Dukes has the best chocolate chip muffins and strawberry angel food roll. Those two are my favorites. They have a good variety and friendly service.

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.

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.

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.
