I've lived in Elgin for over 20 years, and have been to Herb's dozen's of times, most recently a few days ago. If you are not familiar with Herb's, you should know that Herb's is an old fashioned bakery where they still make their products right there in the bakery. Their products are delicious, and do not disappoint. On the donut side, I extremely recommend the Mouse Ears which are yeast donut sliced in half filled with whipped cream, with chocolate icing on top. Their Dutchies are also delicious. They are a thinner fried pastry that is crispy, with some raisins, and white icing on top. Both of these are my favorites, but I've never had a bad donut from Herbs. If you go late in the morning, you might have more of a limited selection since they make all their donuts right there in the store, there are only a certain number available for any given day.
We've also had their danish, which are very good. Their cookies are like little bundles of tastiness, and they should not be overlooked. I've had their cakes a number of times for work functions, and everyone always raves about how good everything is.
Even if you don't live right in Elgin, it's worth the drive to go to Herb's. You won't be disappointed.
