Termini Brothers is probably the most famous bakery in Philly - and rightfully so because they make some of the best pastries, cakes, and cannolis in the city. The Reading Terminal Market location generally has a line of people who take their time deciding between a chocolate chip pound cake or a box of biscottis, but if you know what you want, you can call ahead and pick up your baked goods without waiting.
