Founded on guiding principles of Radical Ingredient Transparency® and Responsible Fair Trade, LEXINGTON BAKES leads A Sweet Revolution™ to empower consumers, improve equitability, and inspire radical change in the food industry.

We believe the best ingredients are real, organic, and ethically sourced with kindness and respect for people and the planet. And we believe you deserve to know exactly what's in your next bite. Our Radical Ingredient Transparency goes beyond the standard industry ingredient list to provide complete traceability and accountability of our sourcing practices.

Our elevated classic American treats deliver iconic flavor and nostalgic warmth for an epic moment of unexpected delight.

Because good dessert is honest and leaves you with a sweet feeling of knowing everyone involved, from those harvesting to those celebrating, are treated fairly.

Founded by brand designer and self-taught pastry chef Lex Evan, LXB officially launched online in 2022. Within three months we landed on the shelves of 22 Foxtrot Market stores and sold out in the first week! Since then we've found success in more retail locations from LA to NYC and many places in-between. Where to find us.

Our Story

Consciously Baked

"LEXINGTON BAKES started with a curious question, ‘What’s in this?’

I fell in love with classic American treats when I moved to the States from Greece with my family. Growing up, my mom and I always made box mix brownies; they were my favorite. As I got older, I started questioning what was in the box.

My curiosity grew to baking from scratch, so I found a recipe online and learned how to bake brownies. I fell in love with baking and continued teaching myself to bake all my favorite treats. I went from brownies and cookies to cupcakes and pies to macarons, eclairs, and more in weeks.

As I mastered the basics and realized dessert is better outside the box, my curiosity turned to the raw ingredients. Learning about highly processed and artificial ingredients, toxic pesticides, exploitative and forced labor practices, and inhumane treatment of animals in the food world left me with a sour taste.

That’s when I started working only with real, organic, and ethical fair trade ingredients that made me feel good about dessert again.

I never intended to turn my love of baking into a business, but in November 2021, an Instagram post of my brownies led to a $5,000 presale for a $10 luxury brownie in just five days. I knew it was time.

In 2022, I formally launched LEXINGTON BAKES with a guiding principle of Radical Ingredient Transparency®, so you never have to wonder, ‘What’s in this?’

The rest is a sweet dream come true.”
