The Croissants are better than Paris, Birthday cakes, donuts, torts, Bennison's supplies bread to the very best restaurants- A weekly stop for our family. We drove 15 miles for years to buy their baked goods. We eventual decides to move to Evanston.

“Good breakfast”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

On our recent trip to Chicago, my husband and I had breakfast at Bennison Bakery and it was great. Good coffee, yummy muffins and Red Velvet Cupcake. My cousin's husband tried the maple doughnut covered in bacon, and he said it was quite tasty. :) And all at a good price.

“Good thing I don't live in Evanston”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

I would be as big as a house! We had the baguette with tomato, basil and mozzarella cheese, an eclair and brought a chocolate cake (chocolate cake with chocolate mousse, enrobed in chocolate icing with big, thin pieces of dark chocolate stuck to the icing. Heaven! It was all amazingly good.

“Charming little neighborhood bakery”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Extensive selection, very helpful staff. Strawberry and rhubarb pie and peach pie were excellent. Red velvet cupcake was huge and very sweet. My son loved the cookie selection and ate them all with great enthusiasm. Visited it three times and it was always busy. Clientele was a bit pretentious, but it made our wait amusing. Watched a uptight mom insisting that her son ( glued to game on his iPhone in stroller) would only eat cookies with blue and brown m&m's on them. Clerk was very patient.
