Great crumb cake and cheese twist!

Went a day after they reopened from vacation. Crumb cake was delicious and cheese twist was wonderful! Have been going there for years. Last time the crumb cake was stale but this time - superb!

We moved out of Bergen County 25 years ago, but we are fortunate to have great friends who bring a B&W crumb cake with them when they visit. Can't ask for better friends than that! Not only have I never had a better crumb cake than this, but I have never had a better cake of any type, anywhere in... More

Very clean place, Great staff who are very friendly and always helpful. You may have a long wait-but the staff is very efficient & will get you out quickly & with a smile on your face. They are known for their crumb cake which they have a hard time keeping up with but they manage. We've had birthday cakes, pies,... More

We were up to North Jersey for a weekend HS reunion. I went along to be the driver and get the best bagels anywhere, and the best crumb cake on earth. We used to live in Bergen County, NJ but moved to FL and there isn't a bakery that comes close to B & W in FL. As soon as... More

Still the best Heavy Crumb Cake anywhere! And don't overlook their cakes and other scrumptious delights. Their French Cruellers are devious and the all love the Seven-Layer Cake!

Everywhere on earth seems to have that one place with the unbelievable baked product that all the locals rave about - this is that place for around Hackensack. The crumbcake here is everything that crumbcake: Mostly crumb, and a very moist and flavorful bit of cake on the bottom. The staff is very nice, quick and efficient and will get... More

This bakery has all of the standard bakery items which are high quality but their super thick crumb layered crumb cake is a standout. On busy days, expect to take a number (really) and wait.

The crumb cake leads the way but all of the baked goods are top notch. Even with the changes over the years this is still tops in the area.

B & W Bakery is still a great bakery, and most probably it caters to ever changing socio-economic population, but it has changed hands too many times and that special European flavor is starting to fade away. Their crumb cake is excellent, but what happened to my custom made mocha torte? Or the hazelnut cake? And Black Forest Cake? Please:... More
