About us

Opening Day, April 3, 2017, Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with Alderman Harry Osterman and the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce. 

We are Kate Merrill and Paige Tyler - Chefs and Co-Owners of Edge of Sweetness Bakery located in Edgewater, a lakefront community on the North Side of Chicago.  We met in 2015 while building our individual bakery brands at a local shared kitchen. We instantly connected - sharing a passion for quality homemade baked goods and a dream to own a neighborhood bakery.  It didn't take long for us to merge our existing bakery brands, and Edge of Sweetness was born! 

We quickly identified what we wanted our business to accomplish - and narrowed it down to three overarching goals: 

  1. To create a community bakery and coffee shop where neighbors can come together and enjoy quality baked goods, coffee, and teas. We are dedicated to producing an array of fresh and delicious products, ensuring each customer has a memorable experience that will keep them coming back for more. 

  2. Because we started our baking careers working in a shared kitchen space, it is also important for us to extend our spacious kitchen to other chefs who are starting or building their own culinary businesses.

  3. And as parents, we have a passion for our local community and will actively support causes that promote exercise through school sports programs and healthy eating programs for the children based in the Edgewater neighborhoods.
