Worth the wait!

We are big fans of the show and had to get there and see it in person. The caked were awesome!!!! The cannoli made my knees weak they were so good! Bring lots of quarters since most parking is on the street. Be ready to wait both outside the store and inside. It is worth the wait and the... read more

Living in Hoboken and working across the street form Carlo's, since before the show, I've eaten more than my share of crumb and Birthday cakes from Carlo's. Now the line stretches for TWO hours if schools have off (holiday, summer, vacations). It's prices have gone up and the quality...well, I don't eat it as much. If you're in town and... More

Carlo's is not known for it's great Italian pastry but has become jammed with tourists because of the TV show! I ventured in because I needed a birthday cake fast but was totally put off by the mob atmosphere and left. There are several bakeries in town where the "locals" go, who wouldn't step foot into Carlo's, namely Marie's(for bread)... More

Not worth the trip...this place is waybtoo crowded and the pastries are mediocre. You cant even sit and enjoy yourself, i dont even think there is a place to sit. I had a cake from there once and it didnt taste like much. I have heard similar feedback from other locals. The cakes look a lot nicer than the actual... More

If you want to go and take a picture in this place because you saw it on TV, go for it. If you are interested in buying pastries at a bakery that you want to eat, please go somewhere else. There are better places in Hoboken and there are much better places in NYC. I live in Hoboken, so I... More

Although I heard that this place wasn't that great and that it was only popular because of Carlos' fame, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. I bought several pastries and treats including creme puffs, linzers and assorted rugelach. All were very good. I did get one thing that was a type of shortbread dipped in chocolate and pecans(?)...

I have travelled to many countries and I have to say the Cannoli I ate today 1 February 2015 at Carlos in New York City is the absolute worse I have ever eaten. The Cannoli was almost frozen and did not taste fresh. I compare this to the Cannoli I ate at Il Gelato in Little Italy New York City... More
