B & W makes the best crumb cake in Northern NJ - 3/4 crumbs, 1/4 cake. The crumbs are not too moist and not too sugary. I have read articles that talk about other bakeries in the area that have "alumni" from B & W making their crumb cake. I've tried them (since a couple are closer to me than... More

I go here all the time. Crumb cake fabulous, apple crumb great. I have never had anything here that was not delicious. Try the beehive cake. At Christmas there are lines out the door for their pfeffernus cookies. I always end up buying more than I planned.

So the crumb cake is what everyone comes here to get, it seems... and with good reason! It was a weekday afternoon when I was there and there was a steady stream of people coming through the door asking for the crumb cake. One guy said that he buys them to give away and at Christmas buys as many as... More

Ok, I would rather eat pastries and cookies than food, and will admit I have had their crumb cake for dinner. It is hands down, the best I've ever had, anywhere but I equally love their cheese Danish, followed by the melt away, black and white cookies, iced brownies and jelly donuts. I have been going to B and W... More

As a 60+ senior from Hackensack, I know B&W bakery very well. All cakes and pastries excellent! But the crumb cake?...fagetaboutit! Can be bought in full or part sheets and even the smallest section must weigh 10 pounds. I've proclaimed their crumb cake to the best, and everyone whose tried it on my recommendation has agreed. Bakery is small but... More

If you like your crumb cake with lots of crumb, this is the place. The awesome heavy crumb cake is just that - tall, dense crumbs on a thin cake. Ummm!

Real bakeries seem to be a rarity these days, but the B&W is the real thing. The bakery was always a popular fixture on Main Street in Hackensack, even when the horrible old Packard's shopping center was the only other shopping destination in the neighborhood. Now that there is a big Target next door, business is booming, and deservedly so.... More
