Artisan Bake Shop with a Social Mission
We exist to bring people together through authentic, good food as a way to catalyze urban revitalization, starting with the south side of Chicago.
As a full-service bakery, we make everything from breads to cakes, cookies, and pies. We specialize in unique flavors like our red velvet cheesecake brownie and our bourbon caramel thumbprint cookie.
