The “little Jewish bakery” coming to East Passyunk Avenue has set an opening date.
The owner of Essen, Tova Du Plessis, will be bringing her selection of baked goods inspired by her upbringing in a Jewish home in South Africa to Passyunk Square. The menu includes house-made breads including challah and rye, babkas, rugelach and cakes. Each day Essen will also have two sandwich options. The bakery will be serving Elixir coffee.
Hours for the bakery will be from early morning to late afternoon, Wednesday through Sunday. You can stop by to pick up some goodies to-go, or sit-in for a cup of coffee and baked good.
