My wife and I visited this fun little bakery on Main St. (at the east end) during our recent visit to Galena. The owner was very nice and personable. I had a cinnamon roll and a glazed donut. I had the cinnamon roll warmed . . . it was goooood. A great treat to keep my blood sugar up before... More

We make a yearly trip to Galena and a Sweetheart Bakery is a must do stop for us. The owner is Mary Wilson and is so nice. She took my then 4 yr old daughter into her kitchen 2 years ago and showed her where she bakes. On this trip, my daughter Diana went to see Mary, and she had... More

Me and my siblings wanted to surprise my parents for their 30th wedding anniversary. I contacted Sweetheart Bakery about making them a cake. We were going to Galena to celebrate the milestone. They were not only able to make a delicious red velvet cake but place it in the front window so as my parents walked by they could see... More

My wife and I stopped in here for a little desert after having lunch nearby. We didn't sample much, but what we had wasn't anything worth trying. I had a chocolate chip cookie that was on par flavor-wise with something you could get out of a box at Walmart. My wife had their so-called "signature item", which was a small... More

Like many brides, it took me a long time to decide where to purchase my wedding cake. I finally narrowed it down to Sweetheart Bakery and a well-known bakery in Chicago. However, I ultimately chose to go with Sweetheart, and here's why: +Even though I was considering a popular bakery in Chicago, they didn't offer the same degree of personal... More

I'm sad at the poor reviews for Sweetheart Bakery based nothing on their product. So they don't open until 8am - that's their hours! Would you give a poor review to the grocery store for closing at 10pm? Look it up before you go!! That being said, I really love this bakery. We came on a Friday afternoon for a... More

I had a horrible experience with sweetheart bakery. I ordered a two tier wedding cake through this bakery. We had a conversation via email and over the phone exactly what I wanted. I also decided to have it delivered so they would put the caked topper on the cake. However on the day of our wedding they delivered the cake... More

Great atmosphere. I can't comment on the coffee myself, but my husband had some and said it hit the spot. I had lemon tea, which was just what I needed. We both got pastries, and sat on their side porch, which is very comfortable and super cute. We also bought some rye bread that the family ate in less than... More
