Made from Scratch, Made for You

We at the Coffee Hound are happy to provide fresh, scrumptious baked goods that are made daily. Our in house bakery, at our Bloomington location, provides these confections to all of our shops. You won’t find any boxed mixes here. The Coffee Hound makes all of their baked goods from scratch; continuously experimenting with different recipes and flavor profiles to best compliment our coffees and your taste buds. Using their creative minds, our bakers aim to please with a different menu of flavors every day!

Our Bakery Team

Hound Bakers Samee, Jan, and Larry are the ones we thank for keeping our Bakery case full and looking sweet. They all hope to share their passion for baking with every patron of the Coffee Hound. Coming to the Coffee Hound from Chicago with a degree in Culinary Management, Executive Pastry Chef Samee is here full time to ensure that every bite meets our standards of quality in both looks and taste. Be sure to try her staple Chocolate Croissants offered every Saturday! Speaking of staples at Coffee Hound, Sous Pastry Chef Jan has been providing our customers with delicious pastries for almost as long as we’ve been open. Her Macaroons, a recent addition, have quickly become a Coffee Hound classic. Pastry Cook Larry is our newest member to the Coffee Hound Bakery team and brings over 20 years experience of baking and cooking to the Hound. Our signature Quiche on Sunday mornings are Larry’s savoury specialty. No matter which baker is in, our bakery staff is dedicated to bringing you the perfect treat for every day of the week.
