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!

Hardly ever have I gone into this bakery that it has not been crowded and you have to take a ticketed number to mark when you can place your order. The tempting smells and inviting displays of cookies, cakes and pastries make this a delicious place whether or not you buy several maple Danish. Several years ago when President Obama's... More

Seriously the best pastry ever. Try the maple pastry or the nut claw. So good, buttery, perfect maple flavor. The cakes are good as well, but if you like pastry I would say this is a must stop shop.
