The pound cake of fond memories

Growing up in Fish Town, Philadelphia, the Polish-American ghetto, a/k/a "K and A", I grew up with Stock's pound cake. Not Polish themselves, but in the same location for eons, this hole-in-the-wall bakery makes "THE" best pound cake in the world. If you don't like POUND cake, don't came here... read more

Our families have been getting cakes here for several generations. Located in a neighborhood which appreciates it as much as anyone. We have moved away to Bucks county years ago but still return to get the cakes which can't be replaced by others. The pound and marble cakes are great as are their others. Especially for the holidays as they... More

I honestly don't get what the fuss is all about. For our office party last year, one of my coworkers said she would stop at Stock's Bakery to get a pound cake. Everyone else got excited, but since I had never had it before I just assumed that it must be really good. She brings in the thickest, driest pound... More

Small corner storefront shop with a line out the door every time I have been there. Nothing fancy but truly the very best pound cake ever. Donuts and cookies good too.

I have officially STOPPED buying and eating Stock's Pound cake (products). Two major reasons: their business style and service attitude and their pound cake is absolutely overpriced! 1) I do not like the in-your-face, hand-written "cash only" policy all over the store and the NO listing of pricing for any products in the store, or your receipt ?? --the young...

As the title explains, this is the best pound cake I've ever had. They do a fabulous job with their cakes and the product is always the same. Try it out. You wont be disappointed.

Every time I go to Philly I have to get Stocks poundcake! This trip I went to the store for the first time and brought several home, can't go wrong with Stocks poundcake! I also had a Stocks vanilla cream donut! Delicious and the filling was so creamy! My family sure was happy when I came home with poundcake! Yum!!!

Stock's has been the special occasion cake of choice for decades and decades in our family, and a new generation is now enjoying the cake and loving every bite. No substitute anywhere. Simply the best.

While on vacation, I picked up one of the vanilla pound cakes Stock's was selling at a Farmers Market. I was sceptical since I knew nothing about the bakery, but once I tasted the cake - its endanger of being consumed by me and my family in one setting. The texture is just right - a little moisture and it... More

No comparison anywhere. Same great pound cake now enjoyed by several generations of dedicated patrons--family, friends, and coworkers. Always the best pound cake. Their cookies, doughnuts, and other selections are all great, too.
