About Us

Baked is a classic American bakery and cafe based in the neighborly environs of Red Hook, Brooklyn. Our bakery specializes in (even obsesses about) all manner of Americana baking. We create a vast array of cakes (we are particularly fond of the three-layer and Bundt variety), cookies, pies, tarts, muffins, scones, bars and brownies.

Truth be told, we have a real soft spot for brownies. They are our true weakness and they formed the backbone of our business. If you haven’t had a Baked brownie, recommended by none other than Oprah herself, then you haven’t had a brownie. Our version is one part fudgy, one part cakey, and all parts chocolate.

Everything is handmade onsite, daily! We use only the freshest, best-quality ingredients.

Baked has cafe style seating, serves Stumptown coffee, and even pumps out free wifi. For more information about our store, see Locations.

Baked is both a neighborhood spot and a nationally recognized bakery. Baked has been featured on the Martha Stewart Show, the Today Show, the Food Network, Cooking Channel, and the Style Network. Baked has also received awards from Time Out, French Culinary Institute, Travelocity and America’s Test Kitchen. Oprah recognized their brownies as a “favorite thing” and they have written recipes for Food and Wine, Bon Appetit, and many more.

Baked has many more press mentions, but we feel silly listing them, so you should check them out here if you are interested.

Baked was co-founded by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. You can find out more about these Gentlemen Bakers, look here.
