Fodor's Review

This Philadelphia institution was founded on the principle of artisanal baking, which explains why its loaves have such an intense flavor and crackly crust. Stop here for a round of cracked wheat or multigrain or for a small treat such as a sour cherry–chocolate chip–sea salt cookie. The store also sells its signature granola, plus cheese, honey, and preserves by other artisans.
