Had a horrible experience for our first professional cake order for our daughters 18th birthday. We have always loved Egypt Star Bakery for a quick drop by to satisfy our sweet tooth, so when we were looking for a place to make our daughter's 18th birthday cake we turned to them. I called them first, the location on MacArthur Road,... More

Lovely old bakery with 3 locations. The Front Street location in Allentown seems to be the original location - you can feel the history. Parking is on the street so you need to know how to parallel park if you're going to Front Street. Great selections at both Front Street and McArthur Rd (Rt. 145). Specialize in older ethnic bakery... More

Our Moravian Church purchases the Sugar Buns for the Moravian Lovefeasts from here. We get really great reviews from the congregation everytime.

After all these yeas, people still line up out the door to get their baked goods and pastries. It smells heavenly inside and while it is small and gets crowded, that's part of the ambiance. In thinking about writing this review, I couldn't determine what was the best. So you have to go try it yourself!

I just moved to the area almost a year ago and came to this bakery (front street allentown location). I chose this bakery based on the ratings and supposedly large selection of cakes & pastries, from what their websites shows. There was nothing to choose from but 2 kinds of cakes, and the size of the bakery was smaller than... More

I was a faithful customer at Egypt Star bakery for many years. I stopped going there about two years ago because I was tired of getting stale bread sold as fresh. I also would ask if the bread was fresh and they always would say yes. I would get home and find that it was not fresh. I finally said... More

I grew up on Egypt Star products, and since I was young, it's always been the same---fantastic bread, but beware of the total freshness of other items. So many times I've arrived home angry that the cookies, or buns were not as fresh as they should be. I don't know what other bakeries do with items at the end of... More

This is a long established and trusted bakery in the Lehigh Valley area. Also has another small bakery on MacArthur Rd in nearby Whitehall, tricky to find but clearly identified by a tall sign in strip mall. The "Jewish" rye comes in small and large loafs at a reasonable price, excellent for toast or sandwiches.
