There’s always something great cooking at Oteri’s!  Here’s the latest thing we’ve cooked up:  a new website.

I am so excited to announce the launch of Oteri’s brand new website,!  We have always been so proud of the rich heritage, old-world craftsmanship and fine quality of all of our baked goods Oteri’s has purveyed in Philadelphia for over 100 years.  Now we have a beautiful, informative new forum in which to showcase not only our entire array of mouth-watering goodies, but also the wonderful people who are the heart and soul of our bakery “family,” and whose loving care is baked into everything we create. 

I encourage you to visit and have a look around.  There you will see what’s new at Oteri’s; what we have for brides, moms and event planners; a complete menu of our products, services and custom design options; and even a photo gallery of the Oteri’s Italian Bakery team, who work hard every day to bring you the superior pastries, cakes and pies you have come to expect from us.  Have a favorite Oteri’s item?  Check out the gallery to see who’s behind the creation you love!  Then, don’t just browse, come on in and say hi!  See what’s cookin’!  We’ll help you design a unique specialty cake for that theme party, put together the perfect wedding cake or satisfy a sudden sweet tooth.  We love seeing our customers!  There’s nothing like the aroma of freshly baked treats when you open the door and step into Oteri’s.

As we begin this new endeavor, I’d like to express my great appreciation for the continued loyalty and support of our wonderful customers.  We would not be here if it were not for you, and we sincerely hope you will continue to make Oteri’s your family’s choice for fine baked goods.  We are very proud of our new website and believe it will make your Oteri’s experience even better.  Check it out and I think you will agree!

See you soon,
