  1. Weber's on Archer Avenue just east of Harlem Ave. I work in the neighborhood and Weber's is my downfall. The Kolachy are amazing, and so are the peanut butter cookies, pound cake and everything else they make.

      My fate is to find the best kolaczki and so far, Weber's is winning. Everything at Weber's is delicious, but their kolaczki's are simply spectacular!

        Agree---Weber's is great. Try the rye bread and raison bread too, really good. Also love the choc. chip(or any )coffee cake.

    2. Oak Mill Bakery in Niles / (847) 318-6400
      This is one of the very best Polish Bakeries. It's been around for years. Great stuff! Try the blueberry custard roll.

      1. I find the Kolacky at the Oak Park Bakery excellent, but I'll be heading to Weber's to compare.

        Oak Park Bakery
        904 S. Oak Park Avenue

        Just South of the Eisenhower.
