Best Bakery in Hackensack

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

Unfortunately I only get down here if my son has a hockey game at the local rink. Everything is amazing, the cupcakes are a favorite, Marble pound cake is awesome but don't leave without a slab (or slabs) of crumbcake!!! Cash only- NO credit accepted

Not the original owners and you must now be prepared to pay "cash only", take a number and wait a while but their cakes and cookies are still enjoyable. If you are ordering a special cake the choices of cakes, fillings and toppings are endless & delicious.

Like most bakeries in the northern NJ area B & W has great cakes, pastries & cookies, but I must say they have the best crumb cake by far!!!

Everyone goes for the crumb cake. Hubby loves the pecan ring and banana cream and Key lime pie. I love the beehive and brown derby. Ordering a birthday cake for a friends birthday. Chocolate cake ..light an air..fresh Strawberrys... Bananas...Bavarian cream....and whipped cream outside..... What can be better. Don't like their cannoli cream. It has citron which is overpowering.

All of the pastries and doughnuts are great. Any cake will definitely impress. The crumbcake and/or cheese twist are a must have! The best bakery in Bergen County. Don't miss this place.
