Though the name may make someone think Delicias Criollas Colombians Bakery only caters to the large Latino community in Feltonville, shop owner Rosemary Paicedo said part of the reason why she loves owning the bakery in this area is the diversity of the clientele.
Paciedo has been at 143 E. Wyoming Ave. for three years and before that was located at nearby Rising Sun Avenue for five years
Upon entering the bakery, not only does the smell of sweet pastries and freshly brewed Colombian coffee entice customers, but the bright red walls and black-and-white checkered floor also add an inviting feel.
Though Paciedo prides herself on the bakery’s extensive Colombian selection of treats, she said they try their best to offer delicacies for all taste buds.
“We have cheesecakes, cookies and flan. My specialty is breads and fried foods,” Paicedo said.
For those who don’t fancy sweets, Delicias Criollas Colombianas Bakery also offers a large variety of breads and empanadas, which are turnovers with a flaky crust. Paicedo said that while most locations only offer beef or chicken empanadas, Delicias Criollas is one of the only establishments in Philadelphia to offer all three options of beef, chicken and cheese empanadas.
“Though we have foods for everyone, I make sure that anyone looking can always find the Colombian brands in coffee and authentic snacks,” she said.
