I took some of the seniors I take shopping, and they all just rave about Riverside Bakery. Everything has such great flavor, and is always so fresh. The Stickey Buns are my favorite!

I grew up going to Riverside bakery for donuts. They have the best around. I'm so happy I have continued the tradition with my kids.

Love this bakery, agree this is what a small town bakery should be like. There are so many goodies it is hard to pick so we like to get a variety. The service is superb and always helpful. Worth the trip if you have not...More

there are no chocolate covered cake donuts like Riverside,I can't tell you how many cakes with strawberries and whipped creme we have ordered over the years...no bakery in lake or mchenry county can beat them.

Riverside bakery has been in business forever. The pastries and other goodies are what small town bakeries are all about. Their offerings are delightfully good.

Riverside Bake Shop is well known in McHenry and has the most delicious baked goods around. I especially love the Carmel Pecan Coffeecake and the Chocolate Donuts! I have never been disappointed with anything I have gotten there.

This bake shop is iconic. Their goods are excellent, not cheap. Very creative options for various holidays throughout the year. A must stop in McHenry
