About Delightful Pastries
Founded in 1989, the Delightful Pastries is family-owned and operated, and is one of Chicago’s most beloved bakeries. The partnership includes mother Stasia Hawryszczuk, who manages the original Jefferson Park location with her daughter Dobra Hawryszczuk Bielinski. Dobra also oversees the Old Town location, and her brother Robert Hawryszczuk, along with his wife, Nico Hua, operates the Chicago French Market location.
From its roots as the baker of authentic homemade Polish specialties prepared according to European baking traditions that have been handed down from generation to generation, Delightful Pastries has expanded its delicious offering of fresh products to include a wide range of breads, brownies and bars, pastries, croissants, cakes, tortes, pies, macaroons, cookies and savory items such as soups, sandwiches, salads and quiches.
