Chimney Cake Island is a small family business owned by us, Mara and Alex. In early 2010 we decided to open a small bakery to make the traditional Transylvanian sweets, Chimney Cakes. On December 21, 2010 we finally opened our store.

Chimney Cake Island is a small bakery specialized in making chimney cakes. It is the first and the only bakery of its kind in Chicago.

To insure the quality and freshness without adding any preservatives, we make our chimney cakes daily from scratch. We do our best to bake high quality chimney cakes and we plan to keep it that way.

We are happy to see that the neighborhood is so open to our chimney cakes and so welcoming.

There are some people we would like to thank for their support along the way: The Hartmans (John, Michelle, Jack and Henry), Ionut M., Oana P., Lejla D., without forgetting anybody who helped us to get here.
