Bennison’s Bakery Has Been Making Mouthwatering European Pastries In Illinois Since 1938

Since 1938, Bennison’s Bakery has been baking European pastries, cookies, and beautifully decorated custom cakes in Evanston. The bakery was opened by Larry Bennison, from the dairy state of Wisconsin, and he focused on using high-quality ingredients such as fresh cream, buttermilk, butter, and eggs in his recipes. In 1967, the bakery was sold to Guy Downer who continued on with the baking traditions of his predecessor and high-quality standards while expanding operations.
