Nestled in the heart of the Berkshires, Studious Baker is a company of culinary artisans that relies on common ingredients for inspiration to develop and create simple and complex, robust or subtle flavor dimensions, with just enough sugar to bridge and uplift the ingredients to make our pastries healthy and satisfying.
We specialize in gluten-free pastries, including birthday and special event cakes, made with organic whole grain flours and 7 different kinds of sugars. The choice of flours and sugar to use changes as we develop and create pastries as edible art and healthy sustenance. There is no one pastry better than another as every piece gets the same attention as the previous. Our pastries change weekly at the bakery, where gluten-free is not an option, it’s a standard.

Hello Friday! Breakfast is back on at the Baker! We're offering both wheat and Gluten-free breakfast treats until noon today--and tomorrow until noon.

We're getting a face lift! Crawford Square (our building) has a fresh new look--still in progress. The signs are up and the new awnings will be up in the next day or 2. So, if you're looking for that dark building with the blue awnings where Studious Baker is, you won't find it. Look for our bright new face (STILL on the corner of North & Depot)! ...
