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.

Friends and family who now live far away still travel many miles to get authentic Stock's pound cake. Stock's pound cake speaks for itself--it is a legend that goes far beyond its Philadelphia roots. The bakery itself is a piece of Philadelphia history and a gem of Port Richmond. Many family members and friends have chosen Stock's for their wedding... More
