I love this place. I use to make weekly stops there when I lived down the street for donuts. It smelled so good every night when they were there making the next day's batch. The smiley face cookies are always a winner with the little kids.

If are looking for a bakery that has everything and is absolutely delicious, this is a must!! This is a family business that has been a McHenry stable with a staff that treats you like family when you enter through the door.

Best chocolate donut ever. Raspberry coffee cake is to die for. Hard to find an old fashion bakery that still has good old fashion bake goods. You will be sorry if you don't stop by there. Bring cash , no credit cards.

Our family loves going to Riverside Bakery! Our favorite donut is the double chocolate donut and we love the coffee cakes! We make a point of getting donuts from this bakery for every holiday breakfast and for out of town guests.

Everything that is baked at Riverside Bake Shop is great. Our favorite is the jelly donuts. When our grandkids come to visit it is their breakfast choice.

The kids ask to stop all the time. They prefer the tasty treats here to chain shops. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
