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.

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.

Only tasted (2) pies here. They had a vast number of offerings. Enjoyed the chocolate and an oatmeal caramel one. You can taste quality ingredients in their product. I hadn't tasted a decent once since my visit to Amish Country. This definitely satisfied my craving...More

Quick stop and go for some dessert after dinner at Carmen's. I got the Elvis cake and it was pretty delicious in general, but i couldn't finish the slice because its quite heavy for my taste. But I guess it's sort of a good thing?...More

Friendly staff but I didn't like the cupcake at all... cake part was dry & I don't know what type of icing that was. I prefer buttercream... I wish I would have went to another place.
