They always have yummy donuts. Love their pretzel rolls. Good selection of bakery items. Hard to decide what to get!

WOW! I think this might be the best cake I have ever had! This is the only place to go for that special occasion cake. The prices are not cheap though.

We went to the Chicago area to celebrate a birthday and searched on-line for a bakery that had good reviews. We ordered a two layer chocolate cake for my daughter's birthday and asked for a tie-dye theme. They called me a couple days before we picked up the cake to clarify what we wanted.

Herb's Bakery is well known in Elgin & the surrounding suburbs.The cookies & pastries are delicious; literally melting in your mouth as you bite into them. Herb's uses real butter in their various selections & it does make a difference. If you want a yummy snack, try the pretzel rolls. They sell out within a couple hours after the bakery... More

Herbs has been in Elgin a long time. Great cookies and cupcakes. Birthday cakes have been somewhat disappointing - dry. Maybe baked and frozen. Good breads.

Always get all out cakes from Herb's. The only place my family will eat them. The frosting is to die for. Not that greasy stuff the stores put on. Just had one for my birthday and could have eaten the whole thing myself.

Thank Susan P
