Kruta has been a family and community favorite for many years. I brought a visitor home and wanted to show it off (since she had recently shown off her Nashville favorite to me). None of us was disappointed. Everything was fresh. The variety was great, even late in the day. Prices are reasonable. The system is efficient. I wish they... More

Been around forever. Family owned. Since moving to different town, don't get there as often.... my bad. Though last time I purchased a cake , the decoration forum wasn't a lot to choose from...as in icing colors seem limited. I'm not for sure if they have a professional wedding cake decorator, but ok for other occasions.

Oh my good! These are the best donuts in the world. Unfortunately, I was on a diet and the donuts were so delicious, I had to break my diet. These are the freshest and best tasting donuts in the world! Highly recommend!!!

People travel from all over to get bakery goods from Kruta's Bakery, especially their "gooey butter cake". I have lived in Collinsville almost 50 years and Kruta's has been at this location more than that. They are known for their reasonable prices and delicious bakery goods. Originally they are from East St. Louis and I always thought they were polish,... More

We read good things about this and decided to stop on our way home from Collinsville. It’s in a nice neighborhood, and we were greeted and assisted by the friendly woman behind the counter. We left with about $20 worth of bake goods including pastries, a loaf of bread, and an apple pie. We enjoyed it all at home, especially... More

Our family has been enjoying Kruta's for 3 generations. One of the best bakeries I've ever been to & it's close & inexpensive. Worth the trip.

Been going there for years (40+). The have the best donuts bar none, the best cream horns, the best gooey butter cakes, and the best regular cakes (like birthday cakes). They just have the best there is. People who say the chain bakeries are the best have not had a good donut so they don't know what they are missing.
