Busy Bee offers a great selection of baked goods including birthday/layer cake, sweet rolls, brownies, cookies etc. The raspberry filled coffee cake is a favorite - dough light and tender, not overly sweet with a delicious raspberry filling. Gets crowded on Saturday so go early.

Ingram's Busy Bee is not a restaurant. It's an old time bakery on Main Street of Downers Grove. You can special order pies and cakes.
