We had the red velvet cookies and cream and the classic. They were both excellent, as was the service. Surprisingly, Whole Foods Whoopie Pies are the best I have ever had. But Flying Monkey is a close second.

I thought whoopie pies were a Philadelphia/Pennsylvania thing but this was the only bakery anywhere in the city that we found them. They had a lot of tasty-looking treats but we stuck to the whoopie pies - traditional, cookies n creme, pumpkin and mint/chocolate.

We tried the flourless chocolate cake and tiramisu cupcake they were excellent. Everything is really chilled perfect for picking up after lunch in market take with you on a big bus tour and eat outside in philly!

I have tried a few things from here , but was not impressed. It's been a while so maybe I should try again. I do remember smiling at the thick colorful rice crispy square in their case.

This bakery has a wide variety of treats. Their black and white cake and their whoopee pies are wonderful. Don't miss their butter cakes, either.
