It's nice to sit outside of this bakery and coffee shop when the weather's warm. The baked goods are very good. Otherwise, though, I wouldn't bother sticking around because they have kind of a weird setup--the room with the couches is basically an adjacent storefront and is really quiet. I guess it's ok if you're studying, but even then, the lighting is not great and it's a little dirty.

Good study spot with a variety of teas and coffees. Baked goods are great. Quiet room usually full of people studying. Makes you feel like you should too.

Alliance bakery is a cute little bakery located on Division Street west of Ashland Avenue. It is a small establishment with desserts and goodies that have a big and rich taste. I have particularly enjoyed their cupcakes. They load on the frosting and they are quite deluxe! The presentation of the cupcakes is also original. The prices are not bad, either!

This may not be the most organized company, but if you're willing to make a few follow-up calls, you will be rewarded with tremendous cake! The owners have an inspiring passion for their work and you can taste it! Cake tastings are incredible and personal. Come hungry! Their designs are inventive and they have a real willingness to work with your ideas.

I've tried Alliance Bakery a few times, hoping to see an improvement. But the staff is consistently rude and spacey, they seem to be annoyed to serve you, and have trouble hearing what you order. Try the other place instead - Letizia's Natural bakery, 1 block west further on Division. Or Sweet Thang around the corner on North Av. Far better than all of them is Bittersweet (on Belmont.)

Pros: Cookies & pastries o.k.

Cons: Terrible service

I look forward to Saturdays when I don't have to hurry to work, and can instead head to Alliance Bakery for fresh made bagels, crossiants, and coffee. While I have never tried the sweeter things, all the breakfast items have been outstanding. There also are tables outside where you can enjoy your fare and get in some morning people watching. As for the previous reviewer who didn't like the samples on the counter, I don't think I would like them either as they are dog treats.

The food, coffee and rude staff here could not possibly be any worse. Every time I manage to forget how awful my last experience was, I go in just to be majorly disappointed all over again. My sister in law to this day loves to tell the joke of when she bought a box of cookies here for a party. They were inedible. Actually, last time I was in Alliance Bakery I tried one of their free samples and rapidly saught a napkin to get that awful pastry away from my tastebuds. It's weird to me how poor this place is.

The croissants were the only thing I can recommend. I would opt for carryout- the place is lame.

The staff behind the counter at this Wicker Park bakery must not flinch when passersby do a double-take, then backtrack to stare at the eye-popping window display of elaborate, rolled-fondant wedding and special occasion cakes. Many…
