We were in the mood to find some fresh rolls early in the morning and we arrived here just after opening. We were warmly greeted by the staff and saw what a selection this place has.

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. They also make a mean Napoleon.

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!

I've been eating Bendtsen's kringles and other pastries for over 70 years and they are the best. The quality is never changes. The kringles have a generous, delicious filling....and, if you don't happen to live in Racine they will ship them to you Don't settle for "factory made" kringles when you can have authentic hand-made kringles.

There is no doubt about it that this is the best bakery in our town. The Kringles Are made fresh and they are the best. All of the other offerings are delicious and freshly baked. The service is excellent and the bakery is very clean.
