The place was packed but I got through the line fast. I'm glad they had a number system. I wish there was a better view of the selections because the crowd plus... More

Busy Bee has been serving up great bakery for many many years in Downtown Downers Grove. There is a reason the place is crowded every Saturday morning until the day's bake has been sold. Always great breakfast pastries picked to order. You want 2 of this and 3 of that? No problem! An old school bakery with personal service and... More

Busy Bee has good old fashioned treats - wonderful donuts and cakes. You will not be disappointed. Go early because they run out by noon. There is no eating area with tables, so you have to take it home.

There aren't too many bakeries left so don't miss a chance to come here. Service is excellent so just take a number and it won't be too long. Cakes, pastries, cookies and bread all are excellent. All the cakes and pastries are light and delicious-ENJOY!

The best coffee cake! Freshly made daily, loaded with whatever flavor you'd like and the price is right! The only criticism I have is that they need to have longer hours of operation. I will try to go there after work and they are closed. I understand why, to keep bakery items fresh and keep their low prices. Great local... More

I grew up with this bakery. They have been around a long time! I have had several cakes decorated for special occasions and they have never disappointed. The treats are delicious. The staff is always helpful and friendly. I hope they stay around forever.
