Very Good for Sweets but Pretty Pricey

To get the angel food cupcakes, cookies or anything here at the bakery is indeed a treat as the prices are pretty high. So to come here is a splurge. But the quality is high.

It should be on your bucket list to try their angel food cupcakes! Their pastries have been favorites for years... Radio rolls, nut rolls... If you want something special, go to underbrinks!

Get there early because quantities may be limited. Specialty cakes are great and the cinnamon rolls are fabulous. In an old building just west of the University at 17th & College. I suggest ordering in advance

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
