Bennison's is an Evanston institution. Located a few blocks from downtown and the train, they deliver the goods. When you walk in you will be overwhelmed by the smell of butter!! The cakes, donuts and specialty baked goods are all amazing.

Went here for 3 days while I was in Evanston. They have great donuts, cookies and pretty much any kind of pastry you can think of. I'll be back next time I'm in Evanston!

We came here for pretzels, only to find out they don't have them. However, we found some nice coffee cake and croissant sandwhiches that were yum. The service was very slow - especially the time it took to get coffee!
