Pleasant House Bakery is a family owned bakery and cafe located in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood. We specialize in traditional and modern savory pies and specialty sweets.

We hand make our own Royal Pies using the best meats and quality produce—growing as much of it as possible at our own Pleasant Farms locations in Chicago.

Pleasant House Bakery also serves lunch and daily dinner specials. We offer a lovely selection of drinks, including our own homemade sodas, and are BYOB.


Art Jackson and Chelsea Kalberloh Jackson are the chef/owners of Pleasant House Bakery.

He also teaches a series of food-driven seminars at the Chicago showroom for Bulthaup. He graduated from Illinois State University and attended Kendall College.
