Sweetheart Bakery is currently a vacant storefront. The owner, Mary, retired and the whole building is for sale. The website is not functional, as is the phone number. Mary and her Sweetheart Bakery will be sorely missed!

Stepping into this shop will overwhelm your tastebuds! My husband bought a gigantic sweet roll which he could not eat at one sitting. Very tasty.

Ran to this store because they were closing at 1pm today only for them to be for ever closed because of retirement. So many stores come and go from this town. It's sad

The seven layer bar was excellent- had a nice butterscotch flavor that I sometimes miss in similar bars. However, the mini-donuts were a bit dry, luckily I only had two.

Great loaves of bread. Owner has been doing this for 30 years. Lots of selection, although they were out of banana nut the day I visited.

My husband and I stopped in looking for a small, sweet treat. We tried their oatmeal apple with caramel cookies. The counter person even warmed it up for us. It was incredibly delicious!

In a desperate search for delicious dessert in downtown Galena, I stopped in this cute little bakery as my last hope. Galena is short on great dessert. I picked a long john which I paid an extra dollar to have filled with buttercream and a...More
