Need a good parve bakery in Bucks County PA please

My aunt is Looking for a parve bakery in Bucks County area please. She is located in Fairless Hills but would drive a reasonable distance. A good all around bakery would be a fabulous find as one of her fabulous daughters recently became lactose free. I will be taking them to Baltimore shortly, but a closer location is needed please.

      Roz makes KILLER products- love her cupcakes- YUM! But I really was looking for someplace closer:( Roz is just South of Center City, my aunt is up near Franklin Mills Mall:(

        I lived in Morrisville the bulk of my life, I may be wrong but there weren't enough kosher keeping Jews when I moved 7 yrs ago to sustain a bakery with decent hashgacha. I could be wrong though. there are probably Jewish bakerys in Yardley, just not sure if they are kosher

        1. re: Moishefrompardes

          Kosher would be a plus, but the parve part is a must. Long story, but this is whats up. I guess I will have to buy cupcakes and share when I see them:(

          1. re: ThePrettypoodle

            im not trying to be difficult, & im not that big of a frummie by a stretch, but how are you going to know its pareve if its not kosher? they bust places with hashgacha all the time for cheating. how is a place without going to be pareve in any meaningful way.

            1. re: Moishefrompardes

              playing devil's advocate, but I'd rather have a piece of devil's food cake.

              there are many VEGAN bakeries that are Pareve. NO animal products whatsoever. No dairy, no animal fats, no eggs to be checked, no honey for sweetnener.

              May or may not be kosher, may or may not have supervision. It boils down to trusting the owner.

              1. re: bagelman01

                thank you both. a reliable supervision is NOT required in this case. I just need a dairy free place NOT one where any frum person you may pick from a random place would eat.
                I guess I will go to Roz when I am in that part of the city or just take them to Baltimore where I know of a yummy place where my cousin can go wild:)

                1. re: ThePrettypoodle

                  If you don't require kosher, then you should try posting in the Philadelphia board for a vegan bakery. As Moishe said, I doubt there are enough Jews that far out who care about kashrut to support a certified bakery, but I'm sure there are enough general consumers to support a vegan bakery.

                2. re: bagelman01

                  I think the terminology thing here is the problem. to me pareve means doesn't need or has supervision. again, not trying to be a chareidi rock thrower. just didn't understand the question.

                  1. re: Moishefrompardes

                    I don't play with rocks. In fact the only rocks I've handled were the shiny ones I bought for my wife's fingers, neck and ears......................
                    Pareve=neutral, no meat, no milk. Traditionally, fish, fruits, vegetables. In their natural state they do not generally need supervision. Pick an apple off a tree and bite. Make applesauce and sell to the kosher community, then most kosher consumers will require supervision.

                    Nowadays, the constantly holier-than-thou brigade are demanding supervision on items that never required them in the past, such as fresh leafy greens that have been checked for bugs.

      2. Maybe still too far and not a bakery, but One Shot Coffee in Northern Liberties sells a bunch of vegan treats. Slightly closer, Rocket Cat Cafe in Fishtown always has vegan baked goods too.

        Both are easier to get to from I-95 anyway.
