Carlo's Bakery has opened a storefront at the former location of the Hollywood Tans parlor at 21st and Walnut Streets; if your a fan of delicious cakes and pastries made the old-fashioned way your grandma would approve of, then get 'em from Carol's.


The original  Bakery was founded in 1910 in New York by Carlo Guastaferro. In 1964, he bought it by Bartolo "Buddy" Valastro, Sr. Valastro's son Buddy Valastro,  featured on the TLC series Cake Boss.  Buddy currently runs the bakery, with help from his four older sisters, three brothers-in-law, and other family members and friends.

This will be the first location for the chain bakery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Carlo’s Bakeries are currently open in Uncasville, CT (Mohegan Sun); Orlando, FL; Hoboken, Marlton, Morristown, Red Bank, Ridgewood, Westfield, NJ; Las Vegas, NV; New York, and Westbury, NY; and Philadelphia, PA. So stop in and see what all the fuss is about from this acclaimed pastry.
