They have an impressive selection of pastries, cakes of all shapes and sizes. Also large variety of cookies. Everything is visible on display. The prices for everything are quite reasonable but tasting experience was good, as it lacked much nuance or texture variation.

One of my favorite places to go for dessert. Their fruit cake is simply amazing, fresh, moist and delicious every time. But I am sure everything else tastes great, too. Try it out and I am sure you won't regret it!

When I visit Chicago, this place is a must. (And I also enjoy care packages from my sister!) They've been in business for 75 years, 25 in the same family. Their coffee cakes, cookies, pastries, and bread taste like they just came from my Swedish grandmother's oven.

Definitley a must-visit when going to Andersonville. Its arguable the best bakery in all of chicago! Make sure you stop by during the holiday season when they are selling (my personaly favorite) heart-shaped spicy ginger cookies.

The bakery is my favorite place in Andersonville, full of breads, pastry, cakes, and cookies. I am not too crazy about their over priced but just ordinary cookies, but I like their breads and sweet pastry. They always have generous sample to try, so while you are there you can have a bite here and there. The staff are friendly and quick to do your request. I like the fact thatduring the day parking is available specifically for its customers.

Located in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago, once a Swedish enclave but today a rich diversity of ethnic cultures and cuisines. This bakery is one of the best I've been to, and others must agree because lines on weekends can be long. More than just Swedish favorites here. A large display case has beautiful pastries from Napoleans to petit fors, many kinds of cookies, pies, breads cakes, muffins and coffecakes. One item looks better than the next, which makes it hard to choose! Prices reasonable but be prepared to wait during peak times.

PROS: Huge selection, high quality
CONS: Can be long wait on weekends and before holidays

The Swedish Bakery retains its high quality throughout the years. They offer a great selection of freshly baked cookies and pastries. Everyone can find something they like there. Sometimes the wait is long, but it's worth it to get exactly what you want. They counter staff is helpful and patient as you pick out your sweets. Everything is impeccibly made and displayed, and the store is very clean. They will wrap up your choices for you to take home, even if it's just a few cookies. I've bought cakes here for special occasions and was proud to serve them. It's in a fun part of Andersonville where you can walk around and visit shops and restaurants. Make a special trip to the Swedish Bakery for some wonderful pastries.

This is a really nice bakery. I got my engagement cake done from here and they did an excellent job. Not only did the cake look great -- it tasted great too! They have lots of baked goods -- from party cakes to small individual snacks. Definitely a Sweet Stop to make!!!

Swedish Bakery made our wedding cake and did a wonderful job. Everything from the planning, delivery, to the cake itself was great. I would highly recommend everyone who is looking for a wedding cake to schedule a meeting with Swedish Bakery to see what they can do for you.

Pros: the french butter creme frosting

Thanks to a beautiful co-worker who treated our office to many of the excellent items on the Swedish bakery menu, there was only one, I do not recommend, and that is that white-chocolate ganache (yuck!) One of the nastiest cakes I've ever tasted.

Way understaffed!!!!\r\nI have waited for 20 minutes before getting my number called and its just isn't worth it.\r\nYou have to go at a time when its not so busy-but forget the weekend. The cookies are SO ridiculously overpriced for a bakery its size, and so are the cakes-pretty much everything is high. For what you pay for the service s*cks. \r\nAlso-had a cake ordered for my graduation and there was so much buttercream between the cake layers that we couldn't taste the cake; BAD CAKES!

The cinnamon raisin bread at 'Swedish Bakery' in Chicago's Andersonville neighbourhood, stands alone as the best in the city. If you want to be really decadent, use the bread to make french toast (or is it 'freedom' toast:). \r\n\r\nAnd if you are celebrating a birthday, order their glazed strawberry cake with the birthday message written on a strip of green marzipan. \r\n\r\nBe prepared for a lengthy wait, as the line can be fairly long.\r\n

I was amazed after visiting the Swedish Bakery as to the low quality of the pastries we purchased. After hearing about how good everything was, I left feeling cheated.

Swedish Bakery is the best bakery on the North Side, hands down. The cakes, the fruit tarts, the petits fours, etc., are all freshly made with the finest ingredients, fresh fruit, and real butter. It is easy to see why this place has been a favorite for generations. Stop by and buy some treats for your sweetie, or a killer dessert for when you entertain.

Nuff said. Been around forever. Was attracting crowds before the New Andersonville. Expect to wait at peak periods...a testament to their deliciousness.
