Satisfy your Sweet Tooth in Manayunk

Nothing says Valentine’s Day more than chocolates! You can always grab a plastic-wrapped box from the convenience store, or you can take your gift-giving to the next level with handcrafted goodies made here in Manayunk.

Sweet Elizabeth’s Cakes, located right on Main Street, is a one-stop shop for all your sugary needs. Their treats are freshly homemade each day, using recipes from the owners’ own grandmothers! Sweet Elizabeth’s prioritizes locally sourced ingredients and avoids shortenings and high-fructose corn syrup so diners can indulge in their guilty pleasure without too much guilt. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill sweets, either. Cupcakes are crafted in flavors like 3 Best Friends — a delicious blend of chocolate-chip pound cake, salted caramel and buttercream. The Brookie Cookie is the best of both worlds: part-brownie, part-cookie. If you’re going stag this year for Valentine’s Day, you can even treat your favorite canine companion at Sweet Elizabeth’s with gourmet dog treats and cakes.

Just a block away, you can get your cookie fix at Insomnia Cookies. Insomnia kicks cookies up a notch with options like Double Chocolate Mint, S’Mores and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup; you can even order a full cookie cake, with a personalized message to your Valentine.

Whether you’re in the market for a treat for your sweetheart or just in the mood for a sugar rush, Main Street in Manayunk can make your Valentine’s Day a sweet success.
