I am sad that I have gone my whole life without knowing what fresh handmade donuts and apple fritters taste like. The regular glazed donut is so simple yet oh so good. We had to wait for 20 minutes or so since the line wrapped...More

The BEST donuts you will ever eat! The fritters are the best, but you must eat them fresh. So many great flavors to choose from. The line looks daunting but it moves very quickly.

I wish I never came here because this place has ruined donuts for me. It's turned into the "Highlander" situation where there can only be one - Beiler's Bakery.

Beiler's has a wide assortment of the very best baked goods in center city. No trip to the Reading Terminal is complete without a stop at Beiler's. I don't consider the doughnuts from Beiler's as a snack or a treat.... these doughnuts are FOOD.

They have a large selection of donuts, with varieties that you've never heard of. Try the peanut butter & jelly- you won't be disappointed. Fritters are also delicious

I don't know for sure, but assume they would make fasnachts, the Pennsylvania German doughnuts made for the same occasion, as it is a Pennsylvania German bakery.

My son and I visited there on a Saturday afternoon. It was a 40 minute wait in line, but they had plenty to choose from and was well worth the wait.

No, they close at 5:00pm on Saturday and don't reopen until midweek. For the Flower Show, they were asked to open on Monday (Sunday they were still closed). They were mobbed on Monday of the show and people were so happy... More
