H&S Bakery


H&S Bakery, 1628 Fleet Street, December 10, 1953.

Founded in 1943 by Harry Tsakalos and Isidore “Steve” Paterakis, H&S Bakery supplied some of Baltimore’s most well-known restaurants and supermarkets, including Harley’s sandwich shops, Food Fair, and Acme. During the bakery’s early years, Paterakis baked hand-formed Italian loaves in an old brick flat-hearth oven while Tsakalos drove the company’s sole truck and served as deliveryman.
