PHLReview

It’s Saturday morning and you’ve successfully navigated the parkway traffic. Your blocks from a friend’s beach house and realize you’ve brought nothing to your hosts to properly thank them for putting you up for the night. Problem solved. Go to E. Holland Sundries and have them fill a box with whatever pastries they’ve made that morning. The fruit-filled hand pies are among the best I’ve ever had and the lemon bars are fantastic, as are the cookies and brownies. Definitely make sure you’re grabbing ample fresh-baked pretzel knots with their homemade beer cheese too. You know, to balance all that sweet with a little savory. As for the croissants, they only make them on Thursdays and you can bet on them selling out.
