Bagels, doughnuts, cinnamon rolls, fresh-from-the-oven bread...for you, your family or an entire soccer team! And don't forget desserts! There are plenty of options in Rockford to satisfy your sweet tooth whether you're craving pie, cookies or the ever-popular cupcakes.
By the Dozen Bakery is one of the top places to go, especially when looking for that perfect customized cake. For many locals it is considered as the top place to go for donuts and fresh pastries, as well. For a bit of the "old school bakery" feel, stop over at Roma Bakeries, and for a more contemporary feel check out the ever-popular Sugarjones (and yes, we know what you are thinking, Sugarjones is a great name for a bakery).
Thinking about grabbing a slice of pie, then you can't miss Kate's Pie Shop located inside the East State Street branch of the Rockford Public Library ... you can grab a vinyl record while you are there. And, for a quick bite while you are checking out the great antique stores in downtown Rockton, you must (yes, this is a must) grab a quick treat at Local Dough.
