WEST TOWN BAKERY & DINER is driven by a passion for feeding people good food. We start with all-natural ingredients sourced only from the people and farms that share our passion. Then we go nuts and make pastries, cakes, and other tasty things that change the way people think about their sweets.

See it all happen at our West Town headquarters. Settle in for a hot brunch and watch us rock out cakes and pastries all day long. You can check out each and every bit of what we make, from start to finish, in our glass-walled kitchen. It’s all the pastry-making, cake-baking, doughnut-frying action you can handle. Think of it as live brunch entertainment, right at your table. And if you can’t stay for a meal? Take a few treats to go and wave hello to our cake team at their streetside cake-building station.


Always local, organic, and sustainable ingredients.
We strive to use as many organic ingredients as possible, down to our flour, butter, eggs, nuts, chocolate, milk, fruits, vegetables, oils—everything. And we source every ingredient from the companies 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. We make deliveries in a hybrid vehicle. We use green-approved lighting in our bakeries. And when we’re done for the day, we compost, 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 – Sugar-free – Soy-free – Gluten-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.

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 masterpieces, however complex, we use as many edible components as possible. If that means using rice crispy beams to hold up an eight-foot-tall cake, so be it.
