Pastry & Bakery Shop... established in 1998

Delightful Pastries is a family-owned and operated bakery has been serving delicious home-style European pastries, cakes and baked goodies to our faithful Chicago clientele for more than 10 years. They prepare baked goods and scrumptious pastries with attention to detail using the finest local ingredients according to European baking traditions handed down from generation to generation.


In 1998, Dobra Bielinski and Stasia Hawryszczuk opened the first Delightful Pastries bakery in Jefferson Park on Lawrence with a goal to make authentic European pastries, using as many local ingredients as possible. This mother-daughter team believed that natural ingredients should speak for themselves and shine through without being covered up with sugar.

Delightful Pastries added two additional locations in 2009, one in the heart of Old Town at 1710 N. Wells and a second soon followed at the Chicago French Market, 131 N. Clinton St. Dobra’s brother Robert, also a chef, had been involved in the background since inception but became a managing partner with his partner Nico Hua, a business executive, taking over operation of both the French Market and Wells St. locations.

Today they are still making all of their products in-house by using the finest and freshest ingredients. They do not add chemicals or preservatives to any of their products. Also, as requested by their clientele, a majority of the pastries are made low-sugar. YOU taste the butter difference.

Our Baking Pledge…

  • We feel strongly that all of our products must reflect our old-world, 
    uncompromised baking style.
  • Each and every treat is made with only the finest fresh ingredients, including imported chocolates and homemade sauces, without preservatives.
  • The tastes and smells are made from real, all-natural butter, creams, fruits and vegetables that are procured only from small, top quality Midwestern farms.
  • Our best kept secret is that we use very little sugar and let the all-natural tastes speak for themselves. In fact, you can close your eyes… take a bite of our Black Forest Cake and actually taste the fresh Michigan cherries in every bite.
