Chew Chew Bun Asian Bakery moves to former location of Crust & Crumb Cafe

Chew Chew Bun Asian Bakery is getting a little closer to the heart of State College this fall by opening new doors in the former Crust & Crumb Cafe location at 115 E. Beaver Ave.

The new location will open in downtown State College “by the end of August,” according to previous information on its website.

The bakery’s former location at the Nittany Mall closed earlier this year and all operations will now be moved downtown.

Chew Chew Bun was to serve Authentic Taiwanese-inspired pastries at State College since April 2019. It’s best known for its Portuguese egg tart and other items like milk toast, crispy ham and cheese, and sweet taro.

If you want to try the newest place in town, you can order ahead and check out the menu on its website once fully opened. It will also offer canned products like milk tea and cold brew from Rothrock Coffee.

Chew Chew Bun will join Egg Beef and Bacon, The Squirrel and Acorn Bookstore, Way Fruit Farm, Mediterranean grilled mezeh, and Planet Fitness as businesses prepare to open downtown in the near future.
