It is hard to articulate the artistry that went into the creation of my very special birthday cake but the Night Kitchen Bakery did it. I had a special birthday this year and some great friends were flying in to help me celebrate. I had traveled with these friends and had many wild experiences, one of which was a very specific picture this fantastic bakery not only replicated flawlessly but made it oh so much better. Yes the cake photo attached is a cake - a DELICIOUS mocha cake that was as good as the artistry was on the outside. If you want a delicious cake, they're the place to go to. And if you want something out of the park special to complement that delicious cake, there is no other choice that Night Kitchen Bakery. Thank you so so much!

Amy and her team are simply fantasic! They baked my wedding cake and small desserts. In the six months I’ve been married, i’ve had multiple guests ask details about the cake and desserts. When it comes to weddings- I’ve heard people discuss about music/alcohol/food months later…but never the desserts! She did such an incredible job and i would recommend Night Kitchen Bakery a hundred times over again!! In addition to the delicious sweets, Amy was so flexible in scheduling our tasting which we sincerely appreciated. Finally, she provided wonderful service to my father-in-law who is also ordering a version of our wedding cake for a separate family event. It was THAT GOOD!! Thank you, Amy, for everything!

The Night Kitchen Bakery did our wedding cake for our wedding in March 2023 and they did an amazing job! It was easy to call and schedule a tasting, pick our flavors. We also had a call with staff to confirm final details. Highly recommend!

We used the Night Kitchen Bakery for our wedding cake as well as all the desserts at the wedding. We arranged a cake tasting where we tried several different types of cake, frosting, and filling. The service was excellent, the cakes were all delicious, and the price was extremely reasonable.For our cake, we chose a small display cake (which we used for the formal cake cutting) and then two larger sheet cakes which were cut behind the scenes for serving. We couldn't have been happier with the presentation of the cakes, the quality of the baking, and, again, the reasonableness of the pricing.After we ordered the cake, we decided to use the Night Kitchen for other desserts as well. When I called and described what we were looking for, the staff had suggestions and ideas, all of which were helpful and wonderful. We had some dietary issues to accommodate, and all of those were handled with ease. Again, the prices were extremely reasonable, and all the desserts (including the ones chosen to work around the dietary concerns) were delicious. Given that some of the issues were allergies, they were also able to ensure that everything was packaged separately, so that one type of dessert didn't mix with the others.On the subject of packaging: our caterer said that, since they weren't providing the desserts, they wouldn't take them out of the box and plate them (which was annoying). We simply provided the Night Kitchen with four platters, and they plated and then wrapped the platters for delivery to our venue.I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of the baked goods, the service provided by staff, and the extremely fair pricing. I would enthusiastically use them again for any event I had in the area, and if I'm ever simply passing through, I'll be sure to stop in for a pastry and a cup of coffee. One of the best bakeries I have ever had the pleasure of using.Dietary restrictions: We had wedding guests who had Celiac as well as allergies to dairy. We chose the coconut macaroons to meet those needs. They were amazingly delicious, and the staff made sure they were packaged separately so that neither gluten nor butter from the desserts got on them. I couldn't be happier with how it all went!

They did an amazing job on our wedding cake! Our tasting was fantastic and we chose 5 options for each layer of our cake. Amy was so nice and easy to work with. We received so many compliments on our cake and how amazing it tasted!

I give this bakery a rating of 3 because of the cake I brought. I asked for a German chocolate cake, the icing is too thick with not enough nuts in it, the icing is more overwhelming than the total cake, not an even balance, the cake part itself is good but if I didn't pay my hard earned money for it and I hate wasting food I would throw it in the trash....I might be back for another purchase of something else but it's not likely!!!

My girlfriend got me some cakes for my 30th and she got them from night bakery. The coolest designs on cakes that I’ve ever seen! They really take their time to create super detailed works of art. I’ll be going here for some gourmet pastries when I’m in need of them. They’re getting featured on food network I’ve heard and they earned that for sure.

Ask people from Chestnut Hill and Mt Airy, they'll know the Night Kitchen. Quality baking for a fair price. Friendly staff are the icing on the (carrot) cake!

You made my engagement party CARROT cake! My entire family loves your carrot cake so it was very special for it to be a part of the celebrations although at first, you were too busy to take the order. You were able to squeeze it in and it was simple but STUNNING with a glittery, romantic, Winter Wonderland, white icing. It is so unusual to find a cake that both looks AND tastes good but Night Kitchen did it again! Best carrot cake from a bakery EVER!! Thank you!

My daughter and I absolutely LoVvVe The Night Kitchen. They always deliver beyond what is expected both in aesthetics and taste with ahmazing customer service to match. Our most recent purchase was a custom cake with cupcakes for my daughter’s Sweet 16. After the gathering I had several people call to ask me just where did I get that cake because it was absolutely delicious lol. My response as always is “Oh The Night Kitchen right on Germantown Ave. Thats the only place to go!!”

Our experience with the Night Kitchen Bakery was a mix of highs and lows, and it pains me to say that our mermaid-themed cake for our daughter's 6th birthday fell short of our expectations.To begin on a positive note, the bakery's lemon curd cupcake and Phillies cupcake had left us with a great first impression. They were delicious, showcasing the bakery's potential for great flavors and quality. We were equally impressed with the accommodating nature of the owner Amy and the excellent communication via email. Their willingness to work with us and their responsiveness were truly commendable.However, when it came to the mermaid-themed cake, we were left disappointed. We had high hopes, considering our prior experiences with their cupcakes, but the cake was, unfortunately, a letdown. The biggest issue was its dryness; it was almost as if we were eating stale bread. This was surprising and somewhat shocking, given the moistness of their cupcakes.While the children at the party may not have noticed the cake's dryness, the parents certainly took notice.Some of our guests even jokingly commented that the filling jam tasted like a generic brand, which was another unexpected disappointment.Despite the cake's disappointing taste, we have to acknowledge the bakery's strong points. The design of the cake was undeniably beautiful, capturing the essence of the mermaid theme perfectly. Additionally, the bakery's excellent communication and accommodating nature made the ordering process a breeze.In the end, we left with mixed feelings. The Night Kitchen Bakery has the potential for greatness, as evidenced by their cupcakes, design skills, and customer service. However, the inconsistency in the quality of their products, particularly the cake, was a letdown. While we appreciate their efforts, we won't be returning for another cake for an event.

I have always loved the night kitchens inviting atmosphere, and warm feeling but even more than that i love their carrot cake UGH 10/10 its a must try, I ordered two gorgeous custom cakes for my 21st birthday this year and the carrot cake disappeared so quickly. a lot of people who hadn’t had carrot cake before were nervous to try it but everyone who initially chose the carrot liked it so much that they went around trying to convince others to try it who hadn’t.
