Testa's Bakery
Ranked #3 of 3 Dessert in Havertown
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 November 2012

Testa's has been the proprietor of what was once Muller's German bakery for quite some time. As a child I used to deliver Muller's doughnuts to the coffee shops in Brookline.Testa's shop itself is a throwback. Neither the store front nor the interior have any appeal. But what Testa produces is exceptional and cherished.Testa's is one of the few places in the area where you can still find old time quality Italian American rum cakes and cannoli. These are absolute requirements for birthdays and holidays, particularly Saint Joseph's Day.
I wonder how much more they might be if they took the time to present their work in a more careful way that would reflect the quality of their ovens. This is particularly important when considering how Brookline Blvd has recently become home to many quality restaurants. But Testa's like their neighbor, Centrella's seems to be oblivious to today's upscale market.
But you gotta love'em.

Testa's is a very good Italian bakery. Their cakes are always consistently fresh and delicious. The only drawbacks would be that they are a little expensive (for certain things) and they do not take credit cards. Cash and checks only. Definitely worth going, very good canolis and cookies. Wayyyy better than icky supermarket cakes.

Arrive in the morning and you will see a line out the door. This line is well deserved, this is an old style bakery, great baked goods and excellent service. Bring one of their creations to your next event and people will ask where you got it.

I order my birthday cakes from there all the time, pound cake with vanilla butter cream icing. I purchased a mini cake for a very small get together and it was great, many terrific reviews. I had brownies from there on a Friday after pizza for a treat with friends, excellent. You cannot go wrong. Being from South Philly, this small Havertown Bakery is just as good as home. Keep up the delicious tastes!
