On a chilly morning in November, 1978, David Braverman opened the window of an old school bus he had converted to a food vending truck and greeted the first LeBus customer. David had home-roasted beef for sandwiches, fresh baked blueberry muffins, and hot coffee for students at the University of Pennsylvania.
With no formal culinary training other than what he had learned from his restaurateur father, David forged his business with three guiding principles: make everything from scratch, use the best ingredients, and try everything.
LeBus was an immediate hit. The lines grew, David was inspired to add more and more to the menu. Salads were invented, exotic soups concocted, and the first LeBus breads were baked in the small propane oven in the back of the bus. Driven by his love of baking, David traveled around the U.S.A and Europe to absorb knowledge he needed to bring the great breads of the world to Philadelphia.*
Today, LeBus operates out of King of Prussia, PA and has four locations throughout the Greater Philadelphia Area. We’ve proudly served their rolls, bagels, croissants and sandwich breads for over ten years.

I have tried almost all of their bakery products and every one of them is delicious. The breads, whole grain dinner rolls, and for a special treat – the chocolate croissants! I never leave the Kimberton store in Downingtown without buying a croissant (or two, or three)….thank you for making such wonderful products.
Thanks for your kind feedback, Marilyn!
We have frequented bakery weekly since it’s opening many years ago. Luv the wheat squares, sweet dinner rolls, blueberry/cranberry scones, seeded rye bread, etc. We went in this morning and one worker had no mask and other did not have her nose covered. I am so irritated by businesses that require masks but don’t set the example. I don’t want to be infected by your lazy bones until there’s a vaccine. Get it together people and Managers.
Hello Catherine, Thank you for reaching out. Please contact LeBus Bakery directly with your concerns: http://lebusbakery.com/content/contact-us/
I moved to South Carolina from Pa. I miss Lebus more than anything else. The rye bread, coffee cake, and brownies were my absolute favorites! Each time I do come back, it’s my first stop. I wish I could learn to make coffee cake like Lebus.
