Baking is another art...and anyone who creates,does not mass produce..is OK in my book....Let's continue to make GREAT food!

There were two (2) local bakeries back in my hometown- Spiesmann's and Ketterer's....I think both are still in operation today, at least they were 8 years ago when we last visited- their Danish coffee cakes were to die for....in fact I brought some back with me on the plane. There is nothing like them in Big D- I know, I have searched high and low. And hard rolls- real hard rolls....oh, the memories, cause there is nothing here that comes close to a real HARD roll here in Big D either!

If you are very in Chicago and want some great bakery goods... DINKEL's on Lincoln Ave is the BEST!

The emphasis seems to be on pasticcerias/patisseries/pastry-shops, as opposed to breadmaking.
