West Town Bakery blends Chicago’s urban street art and music while focusing on the techniques and flavors of the pastry scene. From our managers and chefs to our bakers and baristas, each member is instrumental in the creation of our breads, pastries, coffees and cakes, based on the principal belief that everyone should be able to have their cake and eat it too.

With a focus on great pastries, made by hand, using artisan ingredients: West Town Bakery has been pleasing palates and brightening our guests’ days since we opened on Chicago Avenue in 2011. 

And don’t sleep on our breakfast sandwiches, made with our housemade breads and bagels, to start your morning commute. 

West Town Bakery is the home of those famous cakeballs you keep hearing about, but is creates premier custom cakes, wedding cakes, sweet tables, catering trays, and so much more. 

If you’ve bought a pastry at Dark Matter Coffee, Dom’s, Fairgrounds, or a number of Chicago’s other best stores and coffee houses, you’ve had our pastries. 

West Town Bakery has locations in the city, Wheeling, and in Evanston. We proudly brew Dark Matter Coffee and we look forward to serving you at one of our locations.
