While in New Jersey, I could not resist a stop at Carlo’s Bakery… the famous Cake Boss that you probably have seen on the The Learning Chanel! “Buddy” Valastro is known around the world for his cake design and structure. The TV show presents Buddy and his family in this bakery established since 1910, located in Hoboken. As we stayed... More

We followed the advice of other reviews and went first thing in the morning, we were in line by 7:30, back in the car by 8. The line does take a while, but that gives you time to figure out what you want. I do not watch the show, so I might have picked some different things to try if... More

We just got chocolate chip cookies, but they were excellent. Tasted like right out of the oven. Chips were soft and gooey:)

My daughter and I went to the one in Hoboken! We stood in line for about 2 hours! We are long time fans of the show Cake Boss. When we were leaving Buddy's sister Mary came out. She was very sweet and kind and evens took photos with us! It made our day! It was the next day before we... More

We had high hopes for Carlos Bakery and were looking forward to visiting. We had to wait to wait in line outside before being let in. We then got in and were told to take a ticket and there was no queuing system, but instead they would call our ticket. The time it took to get served was absolutely ridiculous.... More

As a big fan of the TV show, my boyfriend decided to surprise me with a custom-made Cake Boss cake. He didn't wouldn't tell me the cost of it, but he assured it me it was expensive. Plus, we live in London, England, so he had to make a few long-distance calls to pull this off. Overall the whole process... More

While the inside of the shop is quite small, the delicacies that await you are worth the trip. We went on a late Thursday afternoon / early evening, and found the line to be about three people long. That's right; no two hour wait and plenty of attentive staff to fill the orders quickly. We had ordered online in fear... More

Well, one would expect the best out of such a famous place but unfortunately it seems as if they´ve left it aside a bit giving more importance to their newer store. I went to Carlo´s twice because it was close to where I was staying and I wanted to give them a second chance. Day 1: Monday, September 15th: Cons:... More

We had the luxury of having a Hoboken resident with us, so we did not wait in line. Too crowded, too expensive, too hyped. The food was good, don't get me wrong, but I think you can find better sweets at another local bakery or in the city. Worth walking past to say you saw it, but keep walking.
