Great small town bakery

The angel food cake is the main reason we keep coming back. The are so good. Just the right frosting, light, spongy and moist cake. The almond twists are another favorite. All the cakes and other bakery items are equally good.

The cookies and other baked goods are amazing, but a little expensive, however you get what you pay for, they're awesome

I graduated from QHS in 1967. And, left to pursue a career in law enforcement in 1972 in DuPage County (near Chicago). So I have been traveling back to visit for over 40+ years. No trip is complete without visiting the Maid Rite or getting my fix of Nut Rolls from Underbrinks. (Haul them home and freeze them, too). I... More

Starting holiday time around mid-November, anyone who loves homemade Christmas cookies should visit Underbrinks and look at what they have behind the counter. They make homemade gingerbread cookies, chocolate chip cookies, everyone's favorite frosting-covered Christmas shaped sugar cookies, and other delicious smaller cookies with nuts and those sweet goodies you only find at Christmas time. You can buy them by... More

...then don't go. Honestly that is the only reason I would think what they do is special. The pastries are mediocre at best. We've had a variety of their product brought in on several occasions, and it's always underwhelming. Not bad mind you...just average. There are better options in town. The actual building looks/smells like its the oldest bakery in... More

They don't have the most friendly service, but they do have great bakery items, especially the pastries for breakfast and the mini angel food cakes that are iced with delicious frosting.

We stopped in a couple weeks ago to pick up a couple pastries. My wife loves the nut rolls, they were a favorite of her family for decades. I like the chocolate croissants. Hot or cold, you can't beat the chocolate goodness. Lent is coming, they have the best hot cross buns during Lent. Better order ahead if you want... More

My mother used to stop by Underbrinks when she was a student at Quincy University years ago. It hasn't changed since. The butter-streusel danishes are so good, it takes you back to those golden years when everything was made with TLC. Everything there is good and tastes like they were made by Grandma. So good. Get there early because the... More
