Our Story

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.  

In 2015, the idea to open the 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 could enjoy a good coffee, sandwich (or salad), and dessert then leave with a smile on their face. 

The first Goddess and the Baker were 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.

Who We Are

Goddess and the Baker is a fast-casual, fun cafe with locations in the heart of the Chicago and one location outside Milwaukee. We serve breakfast, sandwiches, salads, baked goods, and, of course, the best coffee around all day, every day. Our food is seriously good, our coffee is creative and delicious, and our culture is fun with a welcoming vibe. We are passionate about great food and service.
