Lehigh Valley had the ultimate visitor a couple of weeks ago: President Obama! One of his stops while he was in town was to Egypt Star Bakery. Well, that really got me thinking about all the delicious bakeries there are in this region. Don't get me wrong, Egypt Star is awesome (their bread is killer!) and makes my Top 5 Lehigh Valley Bakeries, but there are so many others as well.

Here's the rest of my Top 5 Favorite Lehigh Valley Bakeries in no particular order:

Village Bake Shoppe in Allentown - I like their cookies Louie's Bakery in Emmaus - simply incredible Italian pastries Soumaya & Sons Bakery in Whitehall - the only place in Lehigh Valley to get pita bread Vegan Treats in Bethlehem - so good and kind of "healthy" too!

I think the holiday season gets me in the "sweets" mode. And since I rarely have time to bake, I know I can rely on any of these to be a winner!

Are there any other Lehigh Valley bakeries I should check out?
