Jilly’s Cupcake Bar and Café and Jilly’s Ice Cream Bar are proud to announce they are the Official Cupcake and Ice Cream of St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Raising money for a good cause never tasted so sweet!
To celebrate, Jilly’s will throw a birthday party for St. Louis Children’s Hospital, which celebrates its 135th year on Wednesday, October 29 – with cupcakes and ice cream, of course!
The party will take place at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 29th, at Jilly’s Ice Cream Bar, 8509 Delmar Blvd., followed by the official announcement at 11:00 a.m.
Jilly’s will create an exclusive St. Louis Children’s Hospital specialty cupcake, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation. Jilly’s will announce a social media campaign on October 29 inviting the St. Louis community to help develop this new cupcake, and share peace, love and cupcakes with St. Louis Children’s Hospital. This is an opportunity for St. Louis Cupcake Lovers to come together and participate in this philanthropic venture.
Jilly’s owner, Jill Segal, says, “We cannot put into words the excitement and joy that we are experiencing as we are allowed the good fortune to give back to the St. Louis Community. Not only is this an opportunity for us to give back, but an opportunity for our customers to give back.”
Janice Bailey, vice president of St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation, says, “We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Jilly’s in benefiting Children’s Hospital. Their products bring such simple joy to so many people, so it’s fitting that this beloved local company will now bring even more happiness to a cause helping kids and families in our own community.”
Jilly’s Cupcake Bar and Café features the nationally-renown Everyday Delight Cupcakes and Monthly Specialty Cupcakes, as well as an award-winning Sunday Brunch and Café. They recently won Food Network’s Cupcake Wars for the second time and have been named favorite cupcakes and ice cream by The Riverfront Times, St. Louis Magazine and the national food blog The Daily Meal. Jilly’s success gives them the opportunity and the responsibility to give back to the friends that have made our dreams come true. Through this partnership, Jilly’s and St. Louis Children’s Hospital will be able to help families celebrate more of life’s special occasions together.
A very big thank you to everyone who voted us Best Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt in the RFT Best of St. Louis poll! Good news, we won!
We are a local bakery and café that has been in business in University City at the corner of Delmar and 170 since 2007. In June of 2014, due to the popularity of our ice cream at retail outlets such as Schnucks, we opened our brand new premium ice cream bar. We believe in providing a handcrafted, premium product made right here in St. Louis, MO!

Of course it is still about the cupcakes – and you have to taste them to believe them – but Jilly’s didn’t stop there.
We partnered with a truly incredible chef who has put together an outstanding menu of breakfast, lunch, and brunch items. Then we decided to start making four delicious flavors of Jilly’s Ice Cream. What started out as an idea to bring the freshest and best ingredients, incredible bakers and pastry chefs with true culinary genius and a fun, comfortable atmosphere has grown into so much more.
We have built partnerships with local grocery stores, like Schnucks and Straub’s, to distribute Jilly’s Cupcakes AND Jilly’s Ice Cream to a wider audience. Jilly’s Cupcakes are also served at local restaurants. Finally, we have added beer, wine and liquor to our menu.We have come a long way, and we thank our customers for our success! Just like our amazing cupcakes, there are a lot of surprises around the corner.
Jilly’s latest labor of love is open, finally! We opened the doors to the brand new Jilly’s Ice Cream Bar and event space.
