Goddess and the Baker is a spin off concept of the ultra successful Goddess and the Grocer restaurants, which opened its first store in 2004. From the very start, the colorful Bucktown storefront was bustling with high energy and bold flavors. Customers loved this new world grab-and-go convenience coupled with a colorful, global menu.
In 2015, the idea to open a cafe-inspired spin-off was born out of our love for good coffee, good baked goods, and great food. We set out to create a warm and inviting meeting place where guests of all ages and backgrounds could enjoy a good coffee, sandwich (or salad), and dessert then leave with a smile on their face.
The first Goddess and the Baker was opened in the spring of 2015 in the hip Wabash Corridor near Millennium park. Just like our sister stores, Goddess and the Baker was a hit, and we have been growing ever since.
