I have been going here for almost 40 years. Nice selection of breads, cakes, pies and cookies. You have to try the hot dog in a blanket or the sausage in a blanket. They also have the best pastries in the area.

I haven’t been here for 3 years. My great aunt would bring Kolach from here up to Minnesota for family and now we are continuing the tradition. Stopped in today with my husband & 3 teens to pick up a few things and place an order for us to bring home with us later in the week. Today we bought a dozen kolachy: poppyseed, pineapple, cheese, apricot, & strawberry- only 2 remain; 1 slice chocolate cake- moist with light buttercream frosting; a hotdog wrapped in salted dough- that was eaten before we were even out of the store; 2 sweet bread- one poppyseed & one raspberry/custard- I don’t know what was in the custard but it was delicious; and a slice of swirled poppyseed sweet bread. We ordered 3 dozen kolachy, 2 kolach, a braided houska, Babis rye bread, dozen frosted sugar cookies, 2 polish in rye, & 2 hot dogs in salted dough- to take home later in the week, some to eat on the 7 hr ride home, some to share with family. Vesecky’s has consistently, over decades, been a go to bakery for our family. 4 generations of our family have enjoyed their treats. All of the things we bought today and ordered my 100% Czech grandma, who’s no longer with us, used to make. I’ve never found anywhere that can make the things she’s make but Vesecky’s.

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 bakery goodness.
The Bohemian rye, houska, kolacky, almond horns, franks & Polish sausage in rolls, strudel, etc, etc... are a taste treat walk back in time.
Even if you are not an old-fart remembering almost 70 years of ethnic culinary indulgence; this is a fantastic place to tempt oneself. Smell the old-school aromas, view the multitude of old-world desserts, and satisfy one's present-day taste buds.
Unless you are fortunate enough to have a babi (grandma) tucked away at home making treats from the family recipe archive; this is the next best option.
Stop in and enjoy!

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 is special. And don't overlook the hot dog in a fresh bun, or even better is the polish sausage in a rye bun! Never had a better chocolate coated donut!
