Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth Locally

As Manayunk anxiously awaits the full reopening of all of our favorite businesses, there’s one sweet way to deal with all that stress! Takeout and delivery have become staples of all of our diets, but restaurants aren’t only serving apps and entrees—don’t forget about dessert! And right near your The Isle apartment, there are many shops that specialize in sweet treats. Since June is the host of a number of special “holidays” celebrating all things sugar—with specific days for donuts, chocolate ice cream, smoothies and chocolate pudding all this month—what better reason to indulge, all while supporting local businesses?

One great spot to do just that is as at Terrace Street Bakery & Café, six blocks from your The Isle apartment. The shop is family-owned by Manayunk locals, and has remained opened throughout the past few months, offering takeout, including on their breakfast, lunch and sweets menus. The venue focuses on small-batch goods, with all menu items handcrafted daily, made with local ingredients when possible.

Terrace Street offers a daily dessert menu that includes eight different varieties of cookies—from M&Ms to Reese’s Peanut Butter to Raspberry Jam Thumbprint; best yet, they’re only $1 each! The cupcake menu features both vanilla and chocolate selections, with vanilla or chocolate buttercream—handmade!—icing. If you’re looking for something even more handcrafted, give Terrace Street 48 hours notice and they’ll whip up a personalized dessert for you, with more than a dozen flavors for cakes and cupcakes. The shop also offers muffins, scones and stuffed croissants on the breakfast menu, so no matter what time of the day you have a craving for sweets, you can get satisfied here.

We’ll all be back into the swing of things soon, but until then, take a little time to treat yourself!
