I grew up in Racine, and always buy Kringle's for gifts for clients, friends etc. I always have bought them at Bendtsen's. Unfortunately I had someone pick up 2 when they passed through Racine and they bought O&H. I encourage anyone to try them side...More

I enjoy Bentsen's products everytime I go to Racine. They are kind. The kringle is fresh and delicious.

This is one or possibly the only bakery that still makes the Kringle's by hand. They are amazing. We came here because we didn't want a whole Kringle (too much sugar). A review somewhere said you could get just a piece of Kringle. Well that...More

Washington Street is under construction making it almost impossible for an out of towner to find this location. Once we found it I was impressed with the Kringle, but the other pastries were just ok. The girl who waited on us was very polite.

Good Kringle but it ain't no O & H Bakery, that's for sure. They don't put near as much filling in their Kringles and they aren't as flaky either

This bakery is the closest to the Danish food I grew up with. (I was born in Denmark) I love the pumpernickel, the Seven Sisters is closest to my mother’s recipe from a 1948 magazine. I have never been unhappy with any purchase.

They are the only bakery that still hand rolls its Kringle, it makes the Kringle much more flaky, their other pasties are also very good

Wisconsin is a FOODIE'S destination... the smaller family owned bakeries are superb. Do it !... the big bakeries operated by the GROCERY STORES are good.. often turning out Knock Offs.

Specialty kringles that I have not seen elsewhere, and they don’t leave a film on the roof of your mouth like the commercial Kringle places.

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.

Raisins have never been an ingredient in any Kringle.. Have you searched fora a recipe that included raisins?
