Bakeries and Desserts in Louisville KY

Wake up and start your day by indulging in Louisville's bakeries and cafes.

Long before the first Bourbon Ball was rolled or a Derby-Pie® baked, Louisville has had a sweet tooth.

The city’s strong bakery heritage dates back to the 1850’s when German immigrants began arriving and dotting neighborhoods like Butchertown and Germantown with family run shops, of which a few still exist today with names like Plehn’s, Heitzman’s and Nord’s.

That entrepreneurial spirit has continued with confections at Kizito Cookies, Jasmin’s Bakery, HI-FIVE Doughnuts and more.
