Many times when giving directions to our Coworking office or the Academie space, we mention that we are just down Bamboo Lane, where the Phoenix Bakery is on Broadway. Where they have been since 1977! They celebrated their 75th anniversary last year being in business in Chinatown since 1938 and although tastes may change over time (yes, they make fresh Red Velvet cupcakes too), some things haven’t changed at all. They still make their famous Strawberry Whipped Cream Cake with that same recipe handed down through the Chan family.
It’s not uncommon for me to overhear someone planning their wedding cake while I order up the tasty dim-sum during the lunch hour. And yes they have many cakes by the slice or pastries and coffee to enjoy a sweet break in your day.
I like this quote from their website:
“From the Dodgers to the Lakers, from Mayor to Mayor, from generation to generation, Phoenix Bakery has brightened many birthdays, weddings and celebrations. We pride ourselves in maintaining a loyal following of customers and continuing to welcome new friends with our quality products!”
