WORST BAKERY EVER!!! I was responsible for finding a place to get the cake for my brother-in-law's wedding and I chose Deerfield's, which turned out to be a ridiculous mistake. I sent in an image of what we were looking for and received a reply that although they could not do the gold fondant in the image - they would do a gold color with a shimmer. This would have been fine if it was provided. Next, at the very last minute they told me that they could not do the flowers that were in the image but at this point it was too late to find an alternative bakery. At the event when we saw the cake we were so disappointed. It was plain yellow (almost a canary yellow) with no shimmer. Also, the cake was so dry that not a single person finished a piece. Has anyone ever been to a wedding where cake was not eaten? We also had a dessert table, which people devoured because it was tasty and from another baker. We would have definitely have preferred to take the money we spent on the terribly disappointing cake and ordered more desserts for the dessert table. Deerfield's told me that they gave me exactly what I asked for but I have email chains and pictures that state otherwise. Also, I do not think that there is anyone that would ask for a grossly dry and embarrassing cake. They seem to focus on the fact that they told me that it would be a gold color and that was what was expected - they delivered a canary yellow cake. Please save your money and look elsewhere for your cakes.

Deerfield has a good reputation and is very expensive. Everything tastes the same, kind of boring. I don't like how when you walk into the place, a lot of the food is out in the open for you to take yourself. Last Summer there were flies all over the food. My sister got her wedding cake from Deerfields. They do a nice job of decorating and I have used them a lot in the past. I think it is worth the drive to Des Plaines to use Cumberland Bakery, well worth the trip. Not fond of Deerfields anymore, there are better ones out there.

I refuse to go elsewhere for my baked goods. I do a lot of entertaining and Deerfield's is close by and the staff is always very helpful, prices are right.

I really enjoy Deerfield's bakery. However, on my last experience, I ordered a cake over the phone for my son's baptism cake. When I went to pick it up, the cross was green and not the blue that I had asked for. When I mention this, some employee wanted to argue with me about the color telling me it WAS blue...when clearly it was not. And then offered to fix it if I came back hours later. It was a little discouraging, and I did use another bakery for my next event. Unfortunately it wasn't as good.

I worked in a bakery while in college, so I am very picky when it comes to baked goods. However, when I don't want to bake and I want quality treats, Deerfields is where I head. They have a great selection and eveything is delicious and tempting to my sweet tooth!

My wife and I have literally spent thousands at this place for several cakes a year, baked goods, cookies, our wedding cake several years back - you name it. They've never messed up an order, and while they do charge out the nose for things, you know it's money well spent. Everything we order always gets raves from the people we serve it to - no exceptions. However, am I the only one to realize that these people just love being the "it" bakery? Sure, I've had some great customer service at this place, but going as much as I have, there are certain women who work there that just love telling people what Deerfield's will and will not do, how much it will be, how many limitations there are, etc, etc. Everyone knows this place's reputation and just jumps through the hoops, and while I think it's worth it to a degree (or I wouldn't return - yet another fact Deerfield's realizes), I have to keep telling myself it's just a bakery - nothing made of eggs and sugar is worth all the snobbery.

Pros: The best baked goods and cake around. Period.

Cons: A few snobby employees (usually the ones that had nothing to do with the quality of the goods)

We needed a Lego-themed birthday cake for my son's 5th birthday. We called Deerfields Bakery's main number and described to the employee the type of cake we wanted.

She was extremely helpful. We felt like she took our vision for this cake seriously. She even searched WITH US online for some examples. That is great service!

We had so many questions for her because we are not familiar with the types of cakes, icings and fillings. She never made us feel like we were an inconvenience.

We picked up the cake at their Schaumburg location and was just very impressed by the cleanliness, friendliness and efficiency of the store and its staff. The cake looked PERFECT. The baker went above and beyond our expectations.

The cake was a show stopper at the party. Picture a two-tiered cake: The bottom tier is yellow with colorful blocks on its face. The middle tier is blue also with blocks on its face. The top piece was a solid red cake shaped into a Lego block.

It was executed perfectly.

This place is very dangerous for me! But it's where I go when I want to indulge my sweet tooth. The doughnuts and cakes are tremendous. You won't find better anywhere else in the area. And the buttercream....if they sold that by the quart, I'd buy one and eat it with a spoon! Talk about heavenly!!

I love Deerfield's and recommend them to everybody. Their buttercream frosting is to die for--not too sweet as some bakeries tend to make it. I ordered a custom cake for a retirement party and it was even more beautiful than I thought it would be. Oh, and the doughnuts!! I often get a box of doughnuts to take to work and they are always a hit in my office!

My wife and I got our wedding cake from Deerfields in Jun. 06. This place is amazing. Everything, and I mean everything, is good there. They have the biggest selection of cakes, pastries and delicious goodies that I've every seen. We live in the River West, so its a bit of a drive, but it's worth it. They have a pretty good website too with all there cake pictures on it

Being from the East Coast, I am used to Italian bakeries being located every few blocks. The town I grew up in had 8 Bakeries within 5 miles. Deerfields Bakery reminds me of my favorite bakery from back east. Their cakes are delicious. They can do any flavor combination you wish. Their doughnuts are the best around. They are definitely worth the trip and price!

This is a very delicious bakery. They offer a variety of cakes and pastries. People always ask me where I got the cake from. The cakes are not overwhelmingly sweet either. You can pick up freshly made doughnuts and coffee cakes in the morning which make a nice weekend treat for the family. They have another location in Buffalo Grove as well. You won't be disappointed.
