Whenever we visit the Chicago area, this is still a must visit; along with a roast duck dinner at the Bohemian Crystal and a sausage pizza from Home Run Inn. Despite all the changes in Berwyn; this is still a multi-generational time capsule of Czech...More

Went to pick up some kolacke and they are really great. Always get some everytime I go in. Not many old backeries around anymore.

Over the past 50 years, Vesecky's has never disappointed. Their Bohemian pastries are delicious! Their Hoska is to die for (have it sliced and have them put it in a plastic bag so it stays fresh). The rye bread is to die for - it...More

Probably the last European bakery left in Berwyn. The Apple Strudel and Kolackys are excellent! (:>)

Best old school bakery around! Salty horns are the same I remember as a child! Fresh and traditional. Just like mom used to make

This bakery is a must when in the area. Old school Czech bakery has been open for years. The kolaczki (kolach) are delicious.

I Work in the area. I have been going there for years. Small family owned place that has been open for decades. The store it self is modest, but the pastries are excellent. I love there almond breakfast pastries. I have never found better.

We bought the decorated Easter Bunny. It was a little expensive but well worth it. Delicious. They are an old fashioned bakery. Everything I have purchased has been good.

It looks like a store from my childhood in Eastern Europe. The stuff they sell looks authentic, but the rohliki are very different from what they should be. Kolachky with poppy seeds are nice, but the jam things are way too sweet for any non-American....More
