The absolute best DEDICATED gluten free bakery in the Chicago suburbs. Many dairy free & vegan options as well. I come here all the time and am never disappointed. We order birthday cakes from here yearly and they are always gorgeous and tasty. I tell everybody about this place!

I love Sweet Ali’s always have variety of bakery items and items to purchase from the freezers. Pies, cakes, different holidays menus. It’s all tasty and great costumer service. My favorite is the focaccia bread and the lemon pound cake it’s super fresh and yummy. I go here often.

I’ve enjoyed pumpkin bread, pumpkin donuts, snickerdoodles, apple pie, and much more! I am sensitive to gums in baked goods, so I can’t eat too much, but it tastes delicious!!! You may also purchase frozen pasta dishes from a local catering company that is effective at gluten free catering.

my absolute favorite gluten free bakery! i haven’t tried anything there that i haven’t liked (and i’ve tried quite a bit of what they have). some of my favorite items are the chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon rolls, and the cupcakes, especially the rotating weekly flavors. they have such a wide variety of baked goods, it always takes me so long to decide what to order!

Definitely one of the MUST VISITS if you are in the area. I've visited the place 3 times during my week visit in the Chicago area. The bakery is entirely GF and makes all sorts of goodies, like scones, cheese Danish, all kinds of cupcakes, lemon bars, and not to mention great bread and buns. She also has frozen items like lasagna. All the items I've tried have been terrific. I've gone to Franks on First, a hot dog/hamburger restaurant next to the bakery that use the buns from Ali's for their GF hot dogs and burgers and found them to be the best buns I've experienced since I began dealing with my Celiac. The buns are moist and hold together really well, and have a good flavor. What a joy it was to actually enjoy eating a hot dog or hamburger on good buns! The bakery does have online access and will ship items. I haven't investigated that yet, but will once I'm home in Utah. This will be a place you will truly enjoy and return to repeatedly when you are in the area.

My sister bought cinnamon rolls for us to share and they tasted just like homemade cinnamon rolls my mom used to make! We live in Indiana and I will be back out there in the not too distant future just because the desert was THAT good!! 100%Celiac Friendly as well.

It was so wonderful to walk into a totally gluten free bakery this morning! Everyone in my group (I am the only one who needs gluten free) totally enjoyed what we had in the shop. My salted caramel cupcake was amazing! I tasted my friend's cinnamon roll, also amazing! Staff extremely friendly! I only wish I didn't live an hour away!

Love this place. Ever since I found out I'm gluten intolerant, I noticed how select my choices are, it is rare to have these many choices. I can eat ANYTHING I want there!!! They even cater to dairy free/gluten free (not everything, but a decent selection). They are a bit pricey, I always spend at least $50 when i go, but I feel it's worth it. Everything is made to taste like they should, not dried out like some gf bakery goods Ive tried. Their pound cake is my favorite! They also sell frozen food from a nearby restaurant, that stuff is really good to!

BEST sandwich bread... soft and fluffy. I craved making sandwiches without toasting the bread and therefore hadn't had a PB&J in ages. I ate the entire loaf in two days!!! Their cupcakes are to die for! Frozen entrees you can take home too. I don't live close, but it's always worth the drive.

Absolutely incredible. Completely dedicated gluten free bakery. If you can't have gluten you MUST go here. I live in a smaller city in Iowa so my options are very limited, but every time I come to Chicago I have to go to Sweet Ali's. the first time I came here the lady could tell it was my first time. She was so helpful and made so many recommendations. Their chocolate chip cookies have won awards. My fiancé is not a gluten free person, but she still says it's the best chocolate chip cookie she has ever had. It seems like they provide for a lot of restaurants in the area too.
