Great treats, crazy busy.

Great treats, crazy busy. I think best time to visit is later evening when the crowds die down. Area parking is impossible.

My family loves the cake boss so we had to stop at Carlo's. We arrived around 9am and pulled the number 40 for service. They were serving number 6 and when we left 30 minutes later they were serving number 12. They have an open bakery so we watched about 6 people making desserts but they only had one person... More

After watching The Cake Boss on TV, it was exciting to see the shop in person. We visited late Saturday afternoon. I expected the line to be out the door and down the block. Surprisingly, this was not the case. When I walked through the door, I grabbed a ticket. My number was 81 and 33 had just been called.... More

I lined up for this bakery as I am a fan of Buddy. The pastries were good, however, the cake that I got was a bit dry. The fact that I was able to see this famous bakery was already a great experience. The place is small but it was properly arranged and the set-up is cute. The people were... More

The baked goods from Carlo's are reliably good. This visit to Carlo's was on a Wednesday, as I took the day off to entertain foreign relatives. Therefore, there was no line. We each chose an item to buy and tasted each other's food. Both the carrot cake and cheese cake were good. My husband likes the kiddie cupcakes. That being... More

Just as I expected, very busy full but wonderful to be there, everyone was pleasant and I even got to see and take a selfie with Mario (I think). When we walked in and got a ticket, I got #74, they were calling #3. I must say I was worried, but to my surprise, within twenty-five minutes my number was... More

This place was ok for many years. It became Huge when it got on TV. There were lines outside waiting to get in. NOT for the actual deserts but because people saw it on TV and wanted to say they went to this place. There are many bakeries much better than this place. Don't fall for the hype. You will... More

Went for my niece's birthday and loved the fact there was not a line at all to come in and order. I literally was like the third one in line. We bought snacks and was pleasantly surprised that as famous as he is, the prices were very decent for someone on a budget. Went all out and bought cannoli, lobster... More
