This is a bakery that has been in Philadelphia since I was a child. It has since expanded to multiple locations and there is a very good reason for this kind of longevity. I have traveled all over the world and let me tell you there is NO other place to get the BEST cake of your life but here... More

I understand that they are one of the few bakeries in Center City. But they dont really offer a great variety and their prices are quite high

This was a little bit of a walk for us but we thought it showed promise. The offerings were fairly limited and the quality not necessarily spectacular.

I've heard so much about this place so I figured the baked goods would be out of this world. Definitely tasty, but no better or worse than any other bakery that I've visited. I'd go back, but it isn't anything special.

The hazelnut cake and the thin mints here are amazing! I'd also recommend the seven layer cake. The staff here is extremely friendly and very helpful.
