About Us

Café | Bakery | Catering | Wholesale

East Mill Bakeshop: Café | Artisan Baking | Upscale Catering | Quality Wholesale. Using the highest quality and freshest ingredients we can find locally.



East Mill Bakeshop & Catering is operated by husband-and-wife team Nick and Emily Puls, chef and pastry chef.

Nick and Emily:
“Leaving the Dubuque area together, we traveled to California (Napa Valley) — where fresh, local and organic products were used every day. After starting a family, we knew the Dubuque area was calling us back to our family and friends here. We also knew that Dubuque was ready for the flair of California cuisine. It’s a pleasure working with locally-farmed ingredients as we strive to put forth the best products possible. The best thing about our business is the seasonality and freshness of everything we do. We make great cupcakes and pies for any occasion. From our specialty sandwiches to our homemade potato chips, we will cater to any of your desires.”


A wonderful South Grandview building (the old Milk House) houses our growing business. In addition to serving walk-in guests during regular business hours, we’re also an on-demand bakeshop with delivery and pick-up options available.
