The “love child of a bakery and a pizzeria” that transformed the location at 2204 Washington Ave. has permanently closed after three years in business.

Kermit’s Bake Shoppe getting good neighbor: Springfield Beer distributor

Maybe it’s because nothing goes better together than pizza and beer.

The Springfield Beer distributor, which has held down its hanger-like location at the foot of the South Street Bridge for decades, will be moving to 22nd Street and Washington Avenue, right next to recent addition Kermit’s Bake Shoppe.

  • A reader sent the City Paper blog Naked City a picture of trolley tracks on 11th Street near Callowhill that had been filled in, presumably by a rogue cyclist. Safety solution or vandalism?
  • The Friends of Washington Avenue Green, where the new Pier 53 park will emerge near Delaware and Washington avenues, is looking for neighborhood residents whose families came through the immigration station that used to be there, reports Pennsporter. “After an “immigration list” is compiled, research will begin at the Historical Society of Philadelphia to determine precise information of the ship, the year, and the steamship line of each person on the list,”says the blog.

Kermit’s Bake Shoppe, the bakery/pizza place opening on Washington Avenue near 22nd Street, is nearly ready to go. And they say they want people to sign up to taste their goodies before the shop opens on Monday.

Did you notice that catch at the bottom? You have to follow the shop on Twitter or Facebook to qualify.

The buzz about this place is starting reverberate through our rowhouse-lined streets, by the way. We showed you recently the new pizza-shaped bike racks they installed outside the shop, which is the latest effort from Sidecar owner Adam Ritter and Chad Durkin of TLC’s Next Great Baker.

Kermit’s Bake Shoppe adds cool pizza-themed bike racks

Things are looking a little different on the west end of Washington Avenue. Maybe you haven’t been down there recently because you don’t need kitchen tile or cabinets, but don’t forget that there are neighborhoods on either side of the seemingly desolate avenue.

But at 2204 Washington Ave, the new pizza shop and bakery Kermit’s Bake Shoppe is getting very close to opening, and they installed these nifty pizza bike racks outside.

New pizza/bakery for Washington Ave.; Noir, a la French Canada

The Insider reports that the Sidecar’s Adam Ritter, who also owns Kraftwork in Fishtown, is planning a pizzeria and bakery on an uninviting strip of Washington Avenue.

It began to make more sense when the blog said there will be no seating. It’s going to be takeout and delivery only, taking over the spot vacated by Pier 22 Seafood, whose phone number is now disconnected.

The place will be called Kermit’s Bake Shoppenamed after Ritter’s cat, which was named after musician Kermit Ruffins (which kind of sounds like a plush cat’s name, actually). Chef Brian Lofink will be on the savory side and Chad Durkin will deliver the sweet side. Lofnik is Kraftwork’s current chef and did stints at Sidecar and Matyson. Durkin was pastry chef at Susanna Foo, The Water Works and has competed on several Food Network shows. So, that means this isn’t going to be your run-of-the-mill pizza place.
