We bought sfoglia, St. Joseph cake, Italian cookies and elephant ears at the Reading Terminal Market in downtown Philadelphia. What a treat. We are sorry we are from out of town. There's nothing like this bakery in our big city.

I stopped in this afternoon for a few cannoli and a birthday treat for my sister. I left with the most delicious cannoli, a small chocolate mouse cake, and a zeppoli (only available in March). The store is clean, and service was fast and friendly. There is such a variety, it was difficult to limit myself. Everything was excellent, and... More

The Pound cake I bought for my Mom 80th Birthday was Fantastic, The service is one on one, polite and courteous.. It is pricey in my book but worth it. Make sure you take the Kitchen tour for free !

We ordered a large amount of cannoli's, Italian pastries and Italian cookies for desserts for 2 family dinners. Everything was top notch and enjoyed by everyone. It was worth the trip to South Philly!

I went to the Reading Terminal market. I could have gone there everyday for every meal but that's another story. I even took a taxi both ways to get desserts for my husbands birthday while we were staying at a hotel and I'm cheap!!! This is the best bakery I have ever been at hands down. I'm not really a...

Decent bakery but WAY overpriced. I will not return based on their prices. You can get better bakery items elsewhere.

While walking through Reading Terminal Market, came across Termini Brothers Bakery. Ordered two cannoli and other pastry. Cannoli were not filled until ordered. My wife is a cannoli fan so I left them to her. She claimed they were the best she's had in a long, long time.

Termini Bros. has been a Philly institution since the 1920's. The original stood across the street from the present building on South 8th St. It is worth the trip. They have the best cannoli in the city. There is a location at the Reading Terminal Market also. At 8th St a server will follow you and fill your order as... More

We had a great cheese danish and a carrot cake pastry. The staff was very friendly too. Suprisingly good coffee.
