You gotta get the sticky buns!

After going to another bakery early Sunday morning and discovering they had no sticky buns, we walked down to Ward's. The walk was so worth it! They offer sticky buns with and without nuts (we got both) and though we stuck with just the sticky buns, they had so many tempting delights! The... read more

We had excellent service! The females working were so nice and helpful. The prices were very affordable, especially for what we got. I loved everything I had - Boston Cream donut and an oatmeal raisin cookie. My partner had an apple danish and a chocolate chip cookie. I bought my parents cinnamon rolls. Everything was FANTASTIC! We will definitely be... More

I was introduced to Wards a while ago. My friend's description of the place and its bread, pastries, cookies - you name it - was spot on. As previous reviewers have stated, Wards is always busy and you'll seldom find a downtime. I've had donuts and cookies from there and they were excellent. I even shared some of the cookies... More

If you haven't tried them, you're missing out! Great donuts, pastries and bagels. Unfortunately, everybody knows about them and the lines can get quite long in the morning.

We stopped at Wards this morning after hearing of it and reading some reviews. I guess I should tell you I stopped one day at closing time and had to come back the next day. We looked and listened and choose two pastries. We sat at a small table for two by the front door I listened to Becky instructing... More

They have excellent gingerbread & nice cookies. Have gotten trays of cookies for parties here & everyone loves them & they disappear! Good coffee too & excellent breakfast breads.

Friendly staff, quaint old bakery filled with cookie jar collection, but nothing fancy at all. What you go for is the BUTTER CAKE! This Philadelphia specialty is hard to find anymore, but this is the real thing. Gooey butter on a yeast dough - so sweet!. The donuts are great too, especially the Boston Crème - the jelly donuts are... More

Ward's has the BEST donuts! They are a bakery that offers coffee, fresh pastries, cookies and cakes. The staff is always friendly. Treat yourself to anything from Ward's! They are reasonable and worth the trip!!

I'm not a regular at wards pastry, but I so go for specific items when I am in the area. Usually I get the cinnamon pockets. These are little squares of pastry filled with a cinnamon mixture that I have never found elsewhere. They are each about one bite full and they are delicious. Today I discovered a new item... More
