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.

If you can find a better bakery I'd be very impressed. This community iconic bakery has been serving the same baked goods to the community for years. Cheese horns, cream horns and gooey butter cake are the specialties and well worth the price, which is quite reasonable even when you can find an honest-to-goodness real bakery. I have lived in...
