Termini Bros. is a place of legend. It’s been around since alcohol was illegal and F. Scott Fitzgerald was hitting up clubs with Ernest Hemingway, and it’s one of the best bakeries in the city. Their South Philly location is only a short walk away from the sports arenas, and it stays open until 9pm, which means you’ll be able to get a box of cannolis after any mid-day Phillies game, or a 7 o’clock Flyers game that was so depressing the entire stadium left after the second period.
