The small cafe/bakery with incredible pastries and sweets you have been searching for!

Food is the commonality for us all. Who doesn't have memories associated with a certain holiday, or event and can tell you exactly what they had to eat? At The Ivy, you will find friendly greetings, a warm nurturing atmosphere, wonderful homemade meals containing an eclectic variety of great tasting fresh food.  

Since I have a little bit of downtime while the Ivy is closed due to COVID-19, I have finally started working on my new Ivy cookbook! I am looking for any suggestions for recipes. Please email Martha at if you would like to submit a recipe.


The Ivy Bake Shoppe supports the new The Collective Food Hub, a certified shared-use kitchen, located in downtown Burlington, Iowa. Local entrepreneurs, bakers, specialty food processors, caterers, chefs, growers and more can rent the share-use kitchen to create, market and sell products collectively.
