Does anyone know where I can purchase a King Cake in the Chester county area?

    If you can handle a drive into Delaware, Serpes Bakery in Elsemere has excellent ones!

      I believe that Strawberry Bakery in Frazer makes them.

        They do, but unfortunately they are closed for vacation this week and will not re open until Tuesday, March 8.

      Not sure if this is any closer to you than Delaware would be, but I saw a king cake yesterday in Southampton at Rillings bakery.

        Aux Petits Delices in Wayne makes an excellent one. Calling ahead is best. They did one for us on Jan 6 (traditional day for these), but I expect they also do them for Shrove Tuesday.
