The taste of the handmade doughnuts, steak rolls or dessert pastries has been sending customers back to Serpe & Sons Bakery for generations. It all started in 1952, when Domenico and Lucille Serpe established their small bakery in Wilmington on North Madison Street, producing bread and rolls, and later cakes, cinnamon buns, and tomato pie.

By 1964, the bakery had outgrown its location and moved to its current Kirkwood Highway location in Elsmere. It serves a number of well-known local clients, like Casapulla’s, Capriotti’s, Attillio’s and Mrs. Robino’s. The bakery, which has seen sons Tony, Richie, Tommy and Dominic take ownership over the years, will celebrate its 70th anniversary next year.
