Bennison's takes the cake (pun intended) in this week's Readers' Choice poll on the best bakery in Evanston.
Bennison's Bakery has served up cakes, cookies, pastries and bread to Evanston for nearly a quarter century--and Evanstonians are loyal to this local favorite at 1000 Davis St. In this week's Readers' Choice poll, Bennison's swept the voting, with 47 percent of readers casting their vote for the bakery that opened in 1938. Coming in second, with 26 percent of the vote, was an even older Evanston institution: Tag's Bakery, opened in 1937 at 2010 Central St. Newcomer Fraiche, at 815 Noyes St., came in third, with 8 percent of the vote.
