This bakery has been around for so many years, I think even the cavemen BC would have had the good fortune to taste their donuts. The cakes and donuts and pastries and cookies and and and.........are baked fresh each day. Seems you can gain 10 pounds just walking in the door and breathing in the aroma. The store also hosts a top of the line gift shop which has cards for every occasion, gifts that you can browse all afternoon, gift wrapping services, balloons for every occasion and friendly employees too. A must stop if you're in the area so that you can take some of the awesome sticky buns with or without raisins home. Lucky you if they make it home without being eaten on the way though.

PROS: Yummy sticky buns
CONS: none

Contrary to the persona of its name, Peter Pan Bakery has definitely grown up.
Just ask Charlie Manning, who founded the Moorestown venue with his late wife Lenore in 1941. Freshly 85 years old, its obvious by talking to him that the passion for the craft still exists.
In time, the family business would become the gift that kept giving. In fact, thats exactly what daughter Melody contributed in 1967, when she added a gift shop. She describes the duration of Peter Pan as an evolution, a growth, noting that it has beacon of stability over the years, serving multiple generations, all the way back to when the grandmother was a child.
Added Melody: Theyre introducing their children to it now. And now they say, its not a birthday if we dont have a Peter Pan cake. It makes you feel good the way the customers accept the products.
The acceptance is basically quite simple, she said. Our slogan underneath our logo is taste the difference, and you can, noting that everything is hand made, as well.
Another part of the ongoing attraction, according to Charlie, is his ability to stay with the times and give their followers just enoughbut not too muchso they keep coming back for more.
Weve tried to keep, over the years, the traditional favorites, Melody said. Then you have the trendy items which last for a while.
She explains: One of the things that I think was very smart of my dad is he came up with certain items that he would only make at certain times of the year. As an example, she mentioned one such item, a fudge covered ginger cookie made during the Halloween season. By making it only [then], it makes it so special, she said. People dont get tired of it. It brings them in for each holiday.

PROS: Great tasting, homeade items, a niche industry in town
CONS:

Much quicker then baking! I have been happy with their pasteries. Their cookies are good as well. You need to get here early to get the best selection on danishes and other popular items. They make cute cupcakes that look like some of your kids favorite chacators.
