I am a South Philly native now living in NJ.
I was just furniture shopping at Grossmans furniture on 2nd and Arch Street in Phila.
Right next door was what we call a "hole in the wall" bakery. It is literally a walk up window, it
Looks as if they only rent a commercial kitchen. There is no actual bakery store.
Make no mistake, do not judge a book by its cover.
This is by far the best bakery in Phila. I have been to every bakery in the tristate area
And the bakeries are not that great. This one is absolutely a gem.
I need a new word for fresh! The chocolate cupcakes with the sweetened butter/shortening frosting are unbelievable moist and Perfect. I have never had such a delicious cupcake that actually was good cake! The lemon bars were amazing. The crust melt in your mouth and the lemon filling was just tart enough. No refrigerator taste on these perfectly baked goods. Just yummy & freshly baked. The Oatmeal cookie was moist and amazing.
I will buy one of everything next time I visit as we were fighting over the cupcakes & lemon bars.
Make sure you visit this bakery, it's a must taste! Tartes, thank you for serving lovely homemade goodies that you can't find anywhere... :)
