Bredenbeck’s Bakery & Ice Cream Parlor has been serving sweet confections and ice cream treats to customers in Philadelphia and beyond since 1889. Bredenbeck’s is a full line scratch bakery specializing in unique custom design cakes, your favorite classic pastries, and many more sweet treats!
A Sweet Century
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 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.
Thirty years later, in 1983, Walter Haug’s daughter, Karen Boyd-Rohde,opened Bredenbeck’s current location in Chestnut Hill. Since its opening, Boyd-Rohde has established Bredenbeck’s as one of the most well-known and well-respected bakeries in the Philadelphia greater area.
A Family Tradition
A self-taught baker and motivated entrepreneur, Boyd-Rohde has instilled a deep respect for the tradition of scratch baking while simultaneously expanding Bredenbeck’s reach and customer base. Boyd-Rohde opened the Ice Cream Parlor in 1983 ever expanding Bredenbeck's sweet selection.
The tradition is continued through Karen's sons Jacob and Irvin Boyd as co-owners and fourth generation. Irvin studied culinary arts, while Jacob studied business management. Together they make the perfect team to continue to make the Philadelphia area's sweet dreams come true!

I love Brendenbeck's Bakery! Their storefront in Chestnut Hill is super cute and their cakes and baked goods are delicious! They even gave us a fresh cake to pick up on our 1 year anniversary which was so much better than eating a 1-year-old frozen cake :)
All we can say is YUM, YUM, YUM!!! These guys know what they are doing and make some of the most delicious desserts we have ever tasted! Not too mention visually beautiful and so professional to work with!!!
It is always such a pleasure working with Bredenbeck's Bakery! Their staff, their cakes, I could go on and on! If you're a Bride and Groom reading this, know that your wedding cake is going to be stunning and so delicious - but most of all, you're in the BEST hands with Bredenbeck's!
