Who We Are

Always local and sustainable ingredients.

We strive to use as many local and all natural ingredients as possible, down to our flour, butter, eggs, nuts, chocolate, milk, fruits, vegetables, oils—everything. And we source our ingredients from the companies, vendors and farmers who share our commitment.

Business as green as our baked goods.

When we say we run a sustainable bakery, we’re not just talking about the food. Our products come in environmentally friendly packaging and we use green-approved lighting in our bakeries. When we’re done for the day, we recycle and use eco-friendly products to clean up.

We bake for everyone.

Our food is meant to be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of lifestyle, allergies, moral beliefs, or health condition. Cakes and pastries at West Town Bakery can meet almost any need, including:

Vegan – Nut-free – Soy-free – Gluten-free – Dairy Free

And if you have a need that’s not on this list? Get in touch with us, and we’ll see what we can do for you. Our cake specialists are in Tuesday – Saturday from 8am – 4pm. Feel free to give us a call at (773) 904-1149 or email us at cakes@westtownbakery.com.

Everything tastes as good as it looks.

When we work, we always remember that, first and foremost, this is food. It should taste amazing. So when we create our cake master pieces, however complex, we use as many edible components as possible.
