My family has been coming here since the 50s when old Mr Doucleff was still baking. A required stop after church on Sunday. They provide bread for a lot of restaurants in the area. All of their pastries and cookies are excellent. My favorite is the napoleon which isn't always available,

We are so lucky to have such a wonderful bakery in our area. If they don't have it on display ask. They have a lot of great Hungarian items, but you have to ask for them. The homage bread is out of this world. We get all our birthday cakes here as well. They are very creative with the cakes.... More

This is a nice little bakery that has been in Alton for a long time. They have a wide variety of baked goods but are known for their donuts. Pick up a dozen glazed donuts, you won't be sorry!

So many tasty baked goods ~ So hard to choose. Both versions of the baklava were delicious and the cinnamon rolls are big.

I used to go to Dukes fairly often due to it being a very short walk from my home. The donuts always seemed a little stale but I was OK with that due to the convenience of the shop. Then I tried their cookies. Worst cookies ever! They were hard and stale, not soft and chewy like I prefer. The... More

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.
