If you like cakes, pies and other baked goods, like I do, you’ve got to check out Gilben’s Bakery and Specialty Sandwich Shop located at 7405 Stenton Avenue in Philadelphia. 

They were recommended to me by someone in the ibuyblack network so I had to give them a try.  What caught my eye, and taste buds, was a scrumptious apple turnover… yum. 

Speaking to two of the owners Kevin Paulhill and Crystal Brown, I learned that the business is a family affair. 

Not only do they make baked goods, lunch (and possibly dinner) is on the menu as well.  Call 215.298.0879 for menu selections and to place an order. 

When you stop in, tell him you read about them in the Philadelphia Sunday Sun.  Subscribe to the Philadelphia Sunday Sun today.
