Western 'Burbs (Naperville Area): Any Good Bakeries?

MisaOutandAbout | Dec 29, 200906:53 PM     17

We used to live in Naperville many moons ago. Then we moved to France. This little tidbit means the bar was set quite high for how all other bakeries are judged, at least on the bread and pastry front.

I'm not looking for a French bakery but if there is one to recommend that would be grand and I'm all ears. What I am looking for is a bakery with that little extra something -- flair, perhaps? We've done Great Harvest Bakery and while their bread is good and their snickerdoodles are excellent, it is a tad basic. I do adore Pastry House Hippo at Mitsuwa and hope it's still there (haven't been back yet).

It can be cupcakes, pastries, cakes, cookies, whatever... as long as it's yummy and not too boring. So I eagerly await anyone's recommendations of a "better than average" bakery in Chicago's West Suburbs...

Cheers,
Misa :)
