The name BabaNonna, which means grandmother-grandmother, is the guide in fueling our passion to create artisan Slovak and Italian specialties that remind people of their childhood. All of our baked goods are hand-made the old fashioned way. Our recipes were handed down and taught to us by our mothers and grandmothers. We know we had something special when people were buying our kiffles at a local farm market and were getting fantastic reviews. We do traditional fillings for kiffles such as Walnut, Apricot, Raspberry, Poppyseed and Lekvar (prune butter). We also make a large variety of non-traditional fillings such as Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coconut, Nutella, Chocolate Coconut and delicious seasonal flavors. Our kiffles are made from scratch in our commercial kitchen located in the Lehigh Valley. We know you will enjoy our delicious foods here at BabaNonna.

We started BabaNonna in 2011 with the idea that we were going to specialize in Italian and Slovak specialties which reflect our family heritages. Tom, being that of Italian and Slovak descent, and Margo being Slovak. As children, we watched and participated in baking and cooking with our mothers and grandmothers.

Long before we started the company, we enjoyed cooking and baking for family and friends that told us that our food is so good, we should go into the business. And so we did...

In 2011 we opened a stand at a Farmers Market serving our pierogies, haluski, manicotti, lasagna and other family recipes. We realized that people were enjoying these types of foods and one of the comments we would hear often was “this reminds me of what my mother (or grandmother) used to make.”

We are located at 2137 Walbert Avenue in Allentown PA and we are located several markets and regional stores.

As owners, we are passionate about our company. We are hands-on in the full process from baking, packaging and marketing our products. We invite you to stop by one of our locations to try what we have been enjoying since childhood.

To say it simply, we appreciate all our great customers. We want to build our reputation on “Quality.”

"I wanted to take a moment out of my day, to drop a thank you your way for all of your hard work on our recent fundraiser for THE CAT SHACK. With your dedication to both your product and your customer service you serve up a tasty and simple way for groups like ours to raise the much needed funds that we need to continue our work in the community. Your fundraiser was a breeze to run and was VERY profitable for us in just two weeks time. Thanks again for all you did for us and pencil us in for next year's "Christmas in July" sale. See ya' then!"

"The chocolate/peant butter kniffles are the best ever. Purchased them at the Chester Craft Fair and can't get enough of them!"

“Your kiffles are to die for. The ones we bought last Wednesday were fantastic. We need to get there earlier to get some of the strawberry ones. What a gift your baking is at the market.”
