“Don't forget the Long-John!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Lancaster County is KNOWN for its baked goods, and Achenbach's in no exception. Known for their Long Johns (really, a long, iced donut) they offer all sorts of pasteries, baked goods, cakes, pies, etc. all year round. The 1-lb eclair is worth getting at least once, and can feed a group for dessert. Our son loves the cupcakes, and they make great pies. In-season, they'll use available fruits and advertise specials outside (i.e. blackberry, strawberry, etc) So good!!!

“Skip if you are dieting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Used to be better. Now they import frozen ready-to-bake doughs from NJ. Not to be missed - their peanut butter long johns (go on Tuesday)

“Not the best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

This was once an excellent bakery but has become too mass produced. It is right on the major tourist route so quality does not need to be the focus. I would avoid Achenbach's and move on.
