Everything is good, the toasted almond tort cake is a must have. Probably the best in the tri state area.

Not our first visit. Took a box of pastries to the nurses at the hospital and tucked away danish and cupcakes for us. I'll just say that the nurses are darn lucky! Worth the trip and worth the wait. There are so few real bakeries left.

This place has some of the best pastries I've ever had. The staff is friendly and the place is clean. Would highly recommend to anyone passing through, or living here who hasn't yet visited.

Some folks call them orange danish, but the orange syrup pools in the bottom of the cut and I adore them! I buy them when I'm in Beaver, and when my friends visit, they bring me some. Fruit tarts, cookies, turnovers -- quite possible the tastiest bakery anywhere, even if not the biggest. Go early for the best selection!

Great old bakery in a great little town! Love that they sell small two serving sizes of some of the cakes. Lots of cookies and smaller treats to chose from. My personal favorites are the croissants ... the plain ones are great but the ones with veggies and meats are even better. Their cakes are great - love the neopolitan... More

I always love this bakery when I'm in town. But now since I live in the area I will definitely be more of a frequent visitor. Can't beat the selection and prices. However, if you want a donut you must show up early, they go quick.

I think Kretchmar's has been there for 40 or more years, but I visited for the first time. Everything was so fresh looking, I had trouble choosing. The maple danish, cinnamon sticks, and loaf of banana bread were my picks, and I was amazed at how wonderful everything tasted. This place is the best bakery I've ever been. When in... More

We always make time for Kretchmar's! Love the pastries and bread, but my favorite treat is the maple walnut bar! The ladies behind the counters are amazing! Willing to split, cut and help us share their goodies. Keep them coming!
