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.

Historical bakery with a long history of serving the community. Plenty of doughnuts in the morning while I struck out looking for croissants.

If you are looking for a great bakery with awesome goods, Duke's is the place to go. It is a family owned business that has been around for years and years and years.

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!!!
