Here's a small taste of what reporters, industry experts and cake connoisseurs had to say about Roeser's:
"...a beacon of individuality & longevity." -Chicago Tribune Magazine Oct -99
"The Roeser's have always had a commitment to their neighborhood." -Modern Baking July '99
"It wasn't fair. Why shouldn't we suburbanites have convenient access to this type of urban treasure." -Naperville Sun Mar '97
"Roeser's designed a very special cake for our 100th anniversary. The quality of the product was fantastic—our guests were very please. Some even reminisced about Roeser's Bakery being a part of their family history." -Diana Kozojed, Quigley Seminary
Roeser's Bakery has such a long-standing history in the neighborhood that in the 1996 the Chicago City Council recognized Roeser's 85th anniversary by designating one block of North Avenue as "Honorary John C. Roeser Avenue," after our founder, John C. Roeser Senior.
