the story of us

Lochel’s Bakery is a 3rd Generation of baking, was started in 1942, in Philadelphia. Previous to our main location in Hatboro the bakery was in Levittown, Pa. Sadly on Labor Day 1995, our bakery caught fire where it was located on Haines Rd., and everything was destroyed. Only very little could be salvaged and saved. This was devastating to our family and customers however we managed to fill our orders with help from a neighboring bakery, our good friends at Piazza’s Bakery. There was a bakery for sale in Hatboro and our family started over in Nov. 1995. My wife and I purchased the family bakery in 2005. We aimed to use all the same recipes, use only the finest quality ingredients and work hard so the bakery is here for generations to come!

We offer a large selection of products including Buttercakes, Cookies, Danish, Decorated Cakes, Donuts, Miniature Items, Sugar Free Items, Tea Biscuits and much more. Our highly sought-after donuts including Fastnachts (made only on Fat Tuesday) keep customers coming back! Our custom decorated cakes for all occasions become a center of attention for many parties!

All of our products are made from scratch, daily, by myself, my brother and other skilled bakers. We offer some hard to find items like George Washington Cake, German Apple Cake, Bee Cake, Springerlee Cookies & Stollen at Christmas & much more. Not only will you have a large selection to choose from here but a hard working, friendly staff to help you.

We thank you for your support of an independent family owned and operated small business! We truly love what we do here at Lochel’s Bakery and its a pleasure to have you as our customer!
