Bredenbeck’s Bakery & Ice Cream Parlor

A Philadelphia tradition

The original Bredenbeck’s was opened in Philadelphia’s Northern Liberties neighborhood by Frederick Robert Bredenbeck, an immigrant baker from Bavaria, in 1889.

The bakery was an instant success and eventually expanded to include stores in Mayfair, Germantown and Mt. Airy. In 1954, the Bredenbeck family handed the business over to Walter and Otto Haug, two longtime employees who impressed the Bredenbeck’s with their loyalty and devotion.

Since 1889, we’ve been welcoming customers to our historic shop in the heart of Chestnut Hill. We keep those customers coming back with our friendly service and our exquisite cookies, special occasion cakes, pies, pastries and ice cream.

No matter what you’re craving, Bredenbeck’s Bakery can be counted on to deliver a delicious treat — and a delicious experience — every single time. Right next door to our bakery is our Ice Cream Parlor serving hand-dipped Bassett’s Ice Cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet.
