Say what you like but this is the very best of the Kringle stops in Racine! The others have quite a bit more notoriety yet the product her is the very best! Though this is a smaller bakery, the pastry of this Danish version puts...More

Racine is a city famous for it's Danish bakery and in particular it's Kringle. There is another, much larger bakery in Racine famous for it's Kringle but there is NO better Kringle or Danish bakery than Bendtsen's. When in town it is a must try.

Someone had to explain to me what a kringle was. I'd not seen or heard of one before, but I was told that this was the place to get a kringle. I'm still not exactly sure what it is, but I can tell you it...More

I've been buying and enjoying Racine kringles for 50 years. Bendtsen's is hands down the best. The leading "other guy" bakery is more popular and sells more kringles only because of better marketing. Bendtsen's focuses on what's inside rather than on top. If you want...More

We bought a pecan kringle at this bakery to eat later but shared a cronut with cream cheese frosting right away. Both were good. The employee was o.k. but not particularly welcoming, but the items we purchased were both good.

These people really know how to make a Danish Kringle. Still do it the old fashion way so the dough is flakier than other Kringles you can purchase in Racine. Their elephant ears are the best as well.

If you're going to indulge in Kringle, this is the place. I am from Racine and grew up eating Kringle and other Danish pastries. This is the only place that still makes all their Kringles by hand. My favorites are Pecan, Almond Macaroon and Cherry....More

Can't beat the handmade process. 10x better than O&H. What took me so long to try a different bakery? Never going anywhere else. The almond kringle is outstanding and I have so many more flavors to try!

The pecan costs $9, not sure of the other flavors. The crust is the thinnest and flaky since they make it by hand. No one else still does.
