Oreo cupcakes containing Delta-8 THC at Wake-N-Bakery in Wicker Park

Brianna Banks and her partner, Mohamed Lotfy, opened the first Wake-N-Bakery in Lakeview in early 2020, selling scones, cupcakes and other baked goods, along with teas and lattes. All drinks and treats can be infused with CBD or Delta-8 THC, a psychoactive substance found in cannabis plants.

The Lakeview bakery and coffee shop was so successful that the owners expanded to other city neighborhoods and the suburbs within just a few years. The Wicker Park bakery opened in the spring.

“I think we educate people and they realize, ‘Hey, there’s a lot more benefits to just being high,’” Banks previously said. “The food has always been a focus. We want you to come back for the food, not just the high, the combination of the two. My goal is to get a Michelin star of some sort. … My goal is to be like that for cannabis, be the first ever.”
