We went to the Chicago area to celebrate a birthday and searched on-line for a bakery that had good reviews. We ordered a two layer chocolate cake for my daughter's birthday and asked for a tie-dye theme. They called me a couple days before we picked up the cake to clarify what we wanted. It was very nice and the... More

Herb's Bakery is well known in Elgin & the surrounding suburbs.The cookies & pastries are delicious; literally melting in your mouth as you bite into them. Herb's uses real butter in their various selections & it does make a difference. If you want a yummy snack, try the pretzel rolls. They sell out within a couple hours after the bakery... More

I've lived in Elgin for over 20 years, and have been to Herb's dozen's of times, most recently a few days ago. If you are not familiar with Herb's, you should know that Herb's is an old fashioned bakery where they still make their products right there in the bakery. Their products are delicious, and do not disappoint. On the... More

Great cookies, not a huge fan of their frosting. It has that oil texture to it other than that it is great!

Herbs has been in Elgin a long time. Great cookies and cupcakes. Birthday cakes have been somewhat disappointing - dry. Maybe baked and frozen. Good breads.

Always get all out cakes from Herb's. The only place my family will eat them. The frosting is to die for. Not that greasy stuff the stores put on. Just had one for my birthday and could have eaten the whole thing myself.

I like Herb's. A bit pricey for donuts for my kids but love their selection. They make excellent pastries, cookies, and breads. They also give back to the community which makes them a step above in my book.

I think Herb's has been here well over 50 years, there's a reason for that, they are delicious. Amazing doughnuts, on par with the best of them. While I don't necessarily like cakes all that much, I do eat them when the come from Herb's. They have a wide variety of other little treats that you would need to stop... More

Love to have a place like this in town. They made a special cake for my son's first birthday which looked---and tasted---delicious.

Been around since the 1950's and they know how to bake. We like their cakes and breads and order from them for all our parties and special occasions. It is really hard to find a real bakery, and we have one right here in Elgin.
