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

We discovered this wonderful bakery when we moved into Center City and have purchased countless pound cakes with or without icing. It is the best in Philly.

Heard they come from all over the country for the pound cake, so we stopped and bought cake for all the neighbors for the holiday. Go with the plain vanilla iced. Will bring back memories of an old fashioned pound cake! Note..a pound cake is really one loaf that weighs 2-3 pounds each. If you are buying a few, be... More

I had started getting cAkes for my events from another popular bakery in North Philly and had problems getting what I wanted to pay for. After reading Yahoo local reviews, I went to Stock's in the Northeast. That was the best pound cake. It was buttery and moist and the prices are reasonable. They are also open on Sundays. The...

You order a "brick" of pound cake-- can be marbled or plain- vanilla or chocolate iced. We love the plain with vanilla icing. It is a wonderful treat - not in a great area, but fine to visit during the day. They also sell them at a lot of farmers' markets in the area. If you visit Philadelphia, this is... More
