This is a small bakery who has been around for a bazillion years. They have lots of cookies, donuts, hotdog / burger buns. But the brownies are the BEST, you can get them with or without nuts. They melt in your mouth!

I stopped by this bakery to pick up some donuts for a customer. When it came time to pay, I realized they do not accept credit cards. Of course I had no cash with me. I was sorry to inform the clerk that I was not going to be able to purchase the donuts after all because I did not... More

I have been frequenting the Riverside Bakery for over 50 years and I have a waistline that can attest to the great doughnuts sold at this bakery. It is always the first stop on my way to South Bend and a Notre Dame home football game. Go Irish!! Go Riverside Bakery!!!!

Family owned and family run. They take great pride in thier products. The brownies and long johns are my favorites. The home baked breads, cookies and cakes are the best. Always fresh.

I have family in McHenry and anytime we are in town we stop by to get a variety of baked goods. Me being a Texan are being educated on the correct pronunciations of certain pastries that are of Polish origin and we really don't know what a real Kolache is! Get there early because things do sell out since they... More

Just step in the door and my childhood flooded back to me as the aroma of a neighborhood bakery filled my senses. The bakery was staffed well and the workers bent over backwards offering help and advice. Now, having said all of that, the product was outstanding. That's it - outstanding!

Great to have a bakery nearby when it seems like the big boxes have taken over. The BEST chocolate cake donuts ever. They have a nice variety of other doughnuts, cakes, pies, breads, etc. All special occasion cakes ordered from here.
