Our History


Koffmeyer’s Old Fashioned Cookies is a Philadelphia tradition for over thirty years. In 1978 Bruce Koffler and Wayne Meierdiercks opened the very first Koffmeyer’s in New Market Square on Front Street in Philadelphia’s Society Hill Section. Our mission was to provide the finest all natural old fashioned cookies available at a reasonable price with the best possible customer service.

In 1979, while New Market was under going a major change, Bruce, who took over the entire cookie operation, decided to move Koffmeyer’s to its location on Second Street at Lombard on the Famous Head House Square. For over twenty years we welcomed customers to our old fashioned cookie store in the heart of Society Hill. We became the place to go and be seen during your visit to the Head House Square and South Street area of Philadelphia. Customers kept coming back year after year for our friendly service and our delicious cookies including the ever so popular Head House Squares.

In the summer of 2011 we recreated that same old fashioned cookie store in Havertown, Pennsylvania. We have added Leiby’s Premium Ice Cream to our shop to create the ultimate dessert experience. Whether you’re looking for a special treat on a weekend or an ice cream cone, milkshake or sundae any day or night of the week, Koffmeyer’s will continue to provide great customer service and mouth watering delights seven days a week. All of our bakery products are still made and baked on the premises daily.
