For 120 years, Heitzman Traditional Bakery and Deli’s dough pounders have been whipping up a vast array of homemade pies, cakes, and cookies while the deli layers hearty sandwiches and casseroles. Curry chicken salad ($6.25) and saucy roast-beef sandwiches ($5.99) befriend fresh batches of dill potato salad ($4.99/lb.) or homemade chicken-and-dumpling soup ($3.50). Behemoth sweet and savory casseroles sate up to a dozen dinner guests or fellow jury members with strata of marshmallow sweet potatoes ($26) or baked turkey ($6.99/lb.).

Heitzman’s original owner, Jacob Heitzman, began baking and decorating cakes in 1891, and the storefront’s current selection ($25–$38) includes a traditional jam cake—a soft, spiced batter laden with raisins, pecans, and fresh jam. Holiday revelers can stockpile springerlies—cookies flavored with licorice extract and a single snowman tear ($6.99)—or nibble spiced lab kuchens drizzled with white icing.

Heitzman Traditional Bakery and Deli

The aromas of warming butter and sugar have called to mind the Heitzman legacy since 1891, when Jacob Heitzman baked and iced his first cake. It didn't take long for his airy desserts to build a fan base, one that grew each time the bakery added to the menu with new items, such as butter kuchen and strawberry whipped-cream cake.

Today, a full-scale deli joins the original baked goods at the Heitzman Traditional Bakery and Deli. On the sweet side of the shop, spice cakes burst with raisins, pecans, and fresh jam, protected from poking fingers by a caramel coating. Fresh-made pies, signature butter kuchens, and loaf cakes teem with fruits and nuts, and specialty cakes come in classic variations such as german chocolate and red velvet. The deli satisfies savory teeth with kettle-boiled bagels from Dooley's Bagels, as well as a selection of fresh soups and sandwiches. Salads bring together morsels of chicken, tuna, and fruit cut by hand, and catering trays carry turkey and ham dinners, box lunches, and casseroles to family meetings and business sing-alongs.
