Northeast Bakery Returns to South Philly Roots

The exterior of the soon-to-be second location of Lipkin’s Bakery at 2153 South Hancock St. | Facebook/Lipkin’s Bakery

While it’s technically a new location, it’s not a new neighborhood for the kosher bakery, which will still uphold kosher standards. Its original location before it moved to Rhawnhurst 43 years ago was at Fourth and McKean streets.

This article has 1 other Philadelphia location (Show)

When Lipkin moved the bakery to its 8013 Castor Ave. location in 1975, most of the Jews near the original spot had moved.

    Northeast Bakery Returns to South Philly Roots - Jewish Exponent
    If you live in Northeast Philly and find yourself in need of a good rye bread or challah, or perhaps some rugelach or hamantaschen, or maybe you just have a hankering for some cookies, chances are you'd head over to Lipkin's Bakery. Well, soon, if you live in South Philadelphia, you'll get that chance, too ...
