Today, the love of Otterbein’s has extended way beyond the city of Baltimore. Our operation is much bigger than a row home, yet so many things are still remarkably the same. Same recipes, with a few more varieties. Same family, who has made Otterbein’s a modern operation complete with wholesale and online businesses supplying the world with Baltimore’s worst-kept secret.
To this day, everything we do is still true to these three things: Simple ingredients. Simple baking. Simple pleasures. And we wouldn’t want it any other way.
