Helfer's Bakery is a bakery of choice for birthday cakes. The cakes are always fresh and super moist. While there, I typically try a few of their sweet treats in the display case. Customer service has always been great!

So good, great variety of pastries and deserts. Cream cheese frosting is simply amazing, could eat it by the spoonful.

The best pasteries this side of the Mississippi. The pies are above average and the cream puffs are even better.

This place is actually divided into two - the bakery on the right, and a cafe on the left. Their baked goods are amazing. But just as nice are the light lunch items at the cafe. There's only a little seating downstairs, but the entire upstairs is also available, and they have great wifi for remote workers. Warning, though: they... More

They think much more of their product than I do, Kellys on 67 or Old Town shame this place. At one time they were ok but now they are coasting into the sunset. I can't think of any reson to goo there and waste my money

I'm so lucky to live nearby. The pastries are fabulous. Cakes with fruit filling delicious. The bakery prices are good my coworkers live it when I bring something in. I like their fresh bread. They have a nice deli with a good atmosphere. A little pricey for the deli but the food is delicious. The only thing I haven't liked... More

I get their Italian bread often. My husband and I would stop at the deli for lunch after doctor appointments, etc. He enjoyed it. Very simple menu but well prepared sandwiches, soup, etc. Small space but worked for us. The bakery is my favorite. They prepared made to order and I have always been pleased. GREAT CAKES

YOU CAN NOT TAKE AWAY THAT THEY MAKE GREAT PASTRIES, but, why do they not make their own donuts. Everytime I went into their shop, no matter, the donuts were always cold or dry then I found out why they do not make their own!
