It was great tasting. The service was less than enthusiastic. Not a huge selection. Blueberry muffin and a cinnamon roll.

Took our grandkids here after visiting the Great Rivers Museum and out for lunch. We first attempted dessert at Just My Desserts (which we left after being disappointed in them). We were so glad we found Duke Bakery. Delicious and very family. We got our dessert and breakfast for the next morning for a quarter of the price we have... More

My fitness center is in Alton and I drove a different way home. I thought I'd meet and treat my wife with a baked goodie. I saw the strawberry cream horns and they called to me. I told the counter girl "2 cream horns" she asked strawberry or chocolate? CHOCOLATE !!?? I got one of each plus two plain donuts... More

I love Duke's marble cake with butter cream icing. The cakes are always fresh and tastefully completed. I'm not a fan of their donuts but their cookies are excellent. They are very accommodating.

When I pick up my grandson from kindergarten a couple of times each week, I ask what he would like to do. He always answers, "Dukes Bakery". When I ask him why, he says that they have really good treats. For all of my nearly 69 years I have not been able to drive past Dukes without stopping and sampling.... More

Dukes has the best chocolate chip muffins and strawberry angel food roll. Those two are my favorites. They have a good variety and friendly service.

This is a family owned business and a must see in Alton. Friendly people and great food! Cream horns and glazed donuts are my favorites.

My first encounter with Dukes, 24 years ago was a disappointment and each of the five times I've visited since has been the same. A lack of flavor and freshness. As an amateur baker, I love to visit local bakeries, to support and encourage, to gain inspiration and to delight in the tastes and textures. Unfortunately, Duke's is not one... More

A staple in the Alton area, dukes bakery should be your 1st sop for sweets and bakes. Everyone leaves with a smile on their face and icing on their finger tips.
