the pastries are fine although I think they used to be tastier and the service could definitely improve.

If you need a special order, don't come here. We have been using Oak Mill Bakery for special occasions since our wedding 12 years ago. For my husband's 50th birthday, I ordered a specific cake, which I have ordered many times before. The day of the birthday, I went to pick up the cake and it was totally WRONG. What made things worse was the staff's screw you attitude - tried to blame me except the paper that the order was written on was what I wanted. I called the corporate office to complain and noone called back. Plus, the cake had to be prepaid since it was a special order and the gave me a hard time about refunding my money.\nAfter 12 years, we will NEVER go back to Oak Mill. No customer service, horrible staff and can't execute a simple cake order when that is their business. Called Froggy's bakery in Highwood and they made the exact cake for me by the time I got there 45 minutes later and it was far better than any cake I have bought at Oak Mill. Plus they were professional and polite. They have gotten too big to be any good. \n

The food is very good. However, the service is far from satisfactory. My experience at the bakery on Rand Rd. has been nothing, but poor and rude customer service. I will not be going there again.

AMAZING BAKERY! Just look at the website to see all the pictures! just eye popping creations to suit every sweettooth. Moist, delicious cakes, tortes and pastries - I have been to many weddings with their sweet tables... nothing is left at the end!!! Their cakes are super moist and come in a variety of flavors... not the usual pick of vanilla or chocolate and one type of buttercreme... i'm talking about i.e pear cake with glaze (#1 fave!!), raspberry ganache chocolate fudge cake, black forest cherry cake, cappuccino deliciousness... and so many more. The decorations are stunning and the Polish ladies that take care of everything... phenomenal! They have more than one location as well. I recommend it!!!

Dear Alexandra, Thank you for all your help with my sister's wedding cake. It was beautiful and very tasty! I was pleasantly surprised that butter cream frosting can actually look like fondant.

I wanted to thank you and your team for all your hard work on the cake I ordered for my wedding. It was beautiful and added to the decor. It was so tasty that I now wished I ordered more than 300 servings because people complained that we ran out. I was also very pleased with how accommodating you were when I was making the last minute changes. Please extend our sincere THANK YOU for all that worked on this and to the owner of the bakery. I am so happy we chose you to make our cake!

The moment you walk in, you're in a pastry wonderland. They greet you and walk you to a little bistro area to sit down for your tasting. Basia, the woman helping us with our tasting, offered us coffee or tea, then gave us all our options of flavors we could try. Then she handed us about 10 different binders with photographs of cake designs they have done before.

On Fat Tuesday I was given 2 paczkis - one from here and one from another bakery. This place wins by a mile. Where the #2 paczki was huge and sloppy, Oak Mill's was perfectly round and nicely sized. Where the #2 weighed probably a half pound from the mass of filling, Oak Mill's filling was just enough, encased within a pastry that was less donut and more like brioche; sweet but not cloying. \n\n

Holy Moly! Everything was scrumptious! It was also extremely fresh (I'm almost positive it just came out of the oven). We ended up choosing vanilla and chocolate cake, raspberry filling, chocolate ganache, and vanilla and chocolate filling because we couldn't decide which flavors we liked more. Everything was light and fluffy, and the fillings were the perfect amount of sweet, leaving your mouth feeling just delightful!

In my opinion there are only few nations in the world who are good at pastries and that list shall include Central European countries such as Poland. Every year, somewhere in August, I start rubbing my hands contemplating about my birthday cake to be ordered at Oak Mill. Last year I had chocolate layered cake with cocoa filling. Previous one, I had cocoa cream layered cake. \nThey never skip on good ingredients in order to look for cheaper and trendier options. In general I detest cupcakes. I think they are bastardized versions of beautiful, big, voluptuous creations called cake. I'm glad that this store at least adheres to the strict European tradition of excellent pastry.

I ordered my wedding cake from Oak Mill Bakery and have ordered countless birthday cakes from there ever since. They have a large selection of cakes to choose from in unique flavors found nowhere else. I live closer to Deer field Bakery, which has a great reputation, but in my opinion still pales in comparison to Oak Mill's selection and quality. My favorite cakes are hazelnut, ambrosia and pear. Try them all you'll love it!

Oak Mill bakery was the worst food i ever had, it tasted like it was frozen for months. I didn't have cake but from the taste of the other products I would never eat it! Everything is overpriced and horrible quality. The people behind the counter were extremely rude and everyone in the back was yelling at each other. Everyone was speaking polish and with their thick accent i could barely understand them. This is America, go back to Poland if you love it so much.

Since I discovered them in 2000 I bought from Oak Mill Bakery all the birthday cakes, all the special ocasion cakes and almost all no special ocasion cakes. They make the best - and I mean the best- cheesecake. The prices are very affordable - a large cake (8-10 generous slices) is about 30$ with taxes. They make special ocasion cakes too- I had my daughter's birthday cake made with Princesses. A huge cake was about 50$, ready to pick up when I requested, and perfect.
And the staff- very nice. They do tend to speak polish when greeting you, but as soon they realise that you have no idea what they are talking about, they speak perfect English. And they are very nice and helpful.
They have such great sales, everything is extra fresh always.

PROS: The best cakes, and the best cheesecake
CONS: they are just in Chicago area :-(
