Hand in hand with your favorite café, we love sharing in your happiness, health, and wellness.
Sensible Edibles’ earliest days were Wassem’s childhood. Growing up watching your father start a bakery would probably foster an appreciation for the craft in any kid, but being raised around fresh ideas and ingredients inspired a love for it. After years of helping out, the bakery’s passion for the mechanics of life became his own. While continuing to work part time, Wassem earned his Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Manhattan College and moved onto get his Master’s in Biology from Queens College. Freshly equipped with an intimate knowledge of the science of life, Wassem returned to Sensible Edibles where he now personally oversees every aspect of the bakery.

We believe in simple food. We believe in ingredients you can recognize and pronounce that’s made by hand with love.
let’s respect our food again
Your grandmother made delicious things with simple ingredients. Let’s get back to that, food we love shared with people we care about. We believe great tasting good food should be the default, not a healthy option or an alternative. Even if it’s an indulgent sweet treat, there’s no reason not to use simple, natural ingredients.
