Barry’s Buns Opens in Chestnut Hill
Have a hankering for a sticky bun? How about one made from 100% natural ingredients, with over six flavor options? Well today, a new family-owned bakery—Barry’s Buns— has opened at Market at the Fareway (formerly the Chestnut Hill Farmers’ Market) in Chestnut Hill, and you can head over there right now to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Owners Joel and Jen Singer are offering six sticky bun flavors, with an additional seasonal flavor, “made to order” liege waffles with Belgian pearl sugar and a choice of toppings, plus cinnamon buns. Also on the menu is crumb cake and butter cake (are you hungry yet?) All of the baked goods are made with natural ingredients and have no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Joel Singer has a baking background with a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts at Johnson and Wales University. He was also the assistant pastry chef at The Rittenhouse Hotel and was the regional bakery coordinator of Whole Foods Market in the Mid-Atlantic region. So basically, these buns have got to be good. Just one question remains: who is Barry?
