Our Story

It all began during the pandemic in 2020 when we had to shift our restaurant operation to 100% delivery. We were already set up for delivery when it came to pizzas, pastas and salads but not our desserts.

Our restaurant patrons started asking us for our popular Original Cheesecake, to be put in to-go containers but unfortunately our creamy cheesecake did NOT travel well and turned into a gooey mess once our customers got around to eating them at home!

We started to brainstorm ideas of how to make it more "to-go friendly" without compromising the integrity of the desserts, and finally decided to start baking them in reusable and sustainable glass jars...and the Harlem Baking Company was born.

The response to our desserts being served in the glass jars was so overwhelming positive that even after our operations returned to pre-covid conditions we continued to make and serve our desserts in the elegant and sustainable glass jars.

Now we proudly have 7 flavors in our portfolio and regularly create seasonal specials throughout the year.

Harlem Baking Company is a small family, veteran owned business.

We hope you enjoy your jars of happiness as much as we enjoy making them for you.Β
