Artisan baking _with LOVE,
from scratch and
all natural ingredients

Every ingredient, every method and every piece of equipment is chosen to produce the finest quality. Many things are done by hand, though they could easily be automated, or are fussed over, when they could be done faster. It is less efficient, it is more expensive and it simply produces better quality food. We believe strongly in giving people alternatives to the homogenized, mass produced foods that have no soul.

You don't stand a chance. The moment you step into the sweet aroma that hovers like an invisible fragrant fog outside of Markus’ & Sylvia’s East City Bakery, you know you'll be heading home with a lot more baking than you had intended.
