Simmi's Story

Born in 1934, Simone “Simmi” Bentolila lit up every room she entered with her charismatic smile and can-do attitude. She believed baking was love made visible and she made it her mission to make everyone feel seen. To a lucky select few, Simmi was affectionately known as “Meme” (French for Grandma). Meme’s house was a place for celebration, comfort, a little gossip, and, of course, love. In keeping with her tradition, here at Simmi’s Bakehouse we are working to bring those feelings to you through our baking.


Meet the Owners: Michelle & Amit Schlesinger

Simmi’s Bakehouse is a dream made real thanks to dedication, hard work and perseverance. Michelle is the granddaughter of Simmi - the inspiration behind the name. A former attorney, Michelle’s passion for baking ultimately swayed her to leave the life of law behind. Amit (aka the Chief Taste Tester) is currently a legal executive at a large education company. Their desire to promote inclusivity and joy in others is the driving force behind the Bakehouse. By utilizing only the freshest quality ingredients and focusing on customer experience, Simmi’s strives for product excellence.
