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.

I grew up in Evanston and it was a pleasure to stroll back into Bennison's. This bakery has the best cookies on Earth. I haven't tried everything in the cases, but can vouch for 2 things for sure and these alone are worth the visit....More

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!

Having an awesome bakery right around the corner from your office is a dangerous thing! Excellent doughnuts and sweets, love their red velvet and maple bacon doughnuts. Tasty sandwiches. All very reasonably priced.

This is a classic bakery with everything from cookies to cakes to bread. They also serve coffee drinks. I have been buying their cakes for my family birthdays for almost 15 years. We have tried every different kind of cake and torte that they make...More
