There’s a reason the North Wilmington community came to the aid of Sweeney’s Bakery a few years back, when construction on Naamans Road wreaked havoc on business. The community raised $23,000 to keep Sweeney’s open, prompting owner James Sweeney to name the patrons Sweeney’s Angels. Since 1957 Sweeney’s has baked from scratch some of the state’s best donuts, graduation and wedding cakes, éclairs, crème puffs and cruellers. There aren’t many independently owned bakeries left. This one was worth preserving.
