Bartleby’s was founded in January 2019 to bring high-quality, handmade ice cream cakes to the deserving people of Chicago. What sets our cakes apart from the rest?
We use only the finest gourmet ingredients in every part of our cakes, starting with local dairy from family-owned Kilgus Farmstead. Why eat a thousand calories if they don’t all taste delicious?
Almost every part of our cakes is made fresh and from scratch in the Bartleby’s kitchen—including the ice cream, cookies, whipped cream frosting, fudge, caramel, cookie dough, buttercream ...
You can custom-order any combination your heart desires. Looking for something that’s not on the menu? Talk to us! We love you and want you to be happy.
From customer service to cake construction to delivery, we work hard to ensure that every aspect of your Bartleby’s experience is extraordinary.
We are also proudly committed to sustainable production practices, including sourcing local, organic, and sustainably produced ingredients and using compostable or recyclable packaging wherever possible.
