The ‘Best Little Bakeshop In America’ Is Just Outside Rockford
If you're up for a small road trip, you might be able to try some of the best doughnuts and other assorted baked goods from one of the "best little" bakeries in America.
That's the word coming from Only In Your State. They say Riverside Bake Shop in downtown McHenry is the "Best Little Bakeshop in America."
At McHenry County's best little bakeshop, you'll find donuts, sweet rolls, cookies, cakes, bread, and a wealth of other delicious items. Each is made with traditional recipes and methods that have been passed down over the years.
Open since 1971, Riverside Bake Shop says "we have a long tradition of making quality products with a great taste."
The place is old school. With a certain amount of old school cool to go along with it. Example, they take cash or check. That's it. Leave your debit or credit cards at home.
Riverside Bake Shop is located at 1309 Riverside Drive, just a little over 45 miles from Rockford.
They're on it too. A little more old school cool, they're now accepting orders for paczkis. You can't celebrate Mardi Gras without one of those little pieces of heaven.
