Though too late to meet your hamantaschen needs for Purim this year, Spread Bake Shop (brought to you by the fine folks from Spread Bagelry) will open up very soon. The shop, in the former Brown Betty space on 20th street, will be baking on premises the kind of sweets that you may have had at home (or at your friends’ houses) while growing up. Expect scones, muffins, sticky buns, and “mom’s coffee cake” alongside babka and rugelach and a few favorites that are less commonplace in Philly. They’ve changed the configuration of the space, so expect a walk-up counter in a subway-tiles-and-exposed-bricked space. Though there won’t be seating, customers will be welcome to bring their sweets to the cafe tables over at the Bagelry, which is great news for those who like to balance the savory with the sweet.
And of course, we have some construction pictures for you. Check them out after the jump.
