Stopped by there to pick up a cake for my niece's birthday. Picked up a 7 inch red velvet... and also picked up a few of their mini cakes for the family. I had called earlier to make sure it would not take an hour to get the cake... but they said there was no line, and we should be... More

I must admit that I never seen the show myself, but It's a favorite of my daughter. So during a NYC holiday, this was at her top of her list. Very easy to find. When we finally turn the corner and saw the shop she became quiet and had a big smile on her face. Lovely staff, a bit chaotic... More

It's a good bakery, but besides the celebrity factor, there are many more like it in the area. The product is good, but no better than many other bakeries in New Jersey. Go if you must, but be prepared for the long lines.

I must first state that I do not watch the Cake Boss nor do I care to want to watch any of these sorts of shows. That said, the kids love Cake Boss and so we made the trek to Hoboken to see what it was like. We were lucky to grab parking so close on the street. We proceeded... More

This stop was something for my daughter who loves the show Cake Boss. She was absolutely stoked with seeing the store front exactly as seen on the show. Although they don't actually bake there anymore and you don't see any of the people on the show at the actual store (well not the day we went), it's still a pretty... More

Was honestly expecting more from this bakery. Waited 90 minutes JUST to get inside the store, then waited another 30 before we were helped. Baked goods were way overpriced, and honestly I've had better. Fun for the experience, but wouldn't go back if I had to wait that long again.

When we got there it wasn't very busy. By the time we got our order it started to get busier. The pastry were not very good and the cupcakes were very dry. Between the 6 of us we spent about $200 and the only good thing was the vanilla mouse with chocolate. Over priced tourist items like mugs and baseball... More

I think if you are in New York for tourism and you are a Cake Boss fan you have to go there. The Hoboken neighborhood it's nice and there are so many good restaurants. Take a entire afternoon and enjoy the experience. Order a cannoli, cupcakes or whatever you want. Everthing that I try was delicious. If you walk to... More

We travelled to Hoboken, NJ, specifically to see this place having watched many episodes of Cake Boss. We'd heard there were long queues but we got there at opening time on a mid-January 2014 morning and we were the only ones in the store. The store looks beautiful from the outside and utilitarian on the inside (which, I guess is... More

Cakes and cupcakes are very good and are well worth the trip...ended up getting more than we planned on because it all looked good....and it was.
