Forget Carlo's - this is the best bakery in Hoboken

Lived in Hoboken 5+ years - the German Bakery is legit! Everything - and I mean EVERYTHING - is home-made. Carlo's ships in bakery items from their warehouse.

Plenty of goodies and good coffee. The bakery offers many German goods and some not so German, according to my German friend that joined me. Coffee was good, service can improve a bit. Staff didn't know many things from the area (like about street parking cost and time) and did not show much concern about helping out either. Good to... More

You will not believe the freshness, the lightness, and the wonderful flavors to be found at The Old German Bakery. From the exquisite pumpkin seed loaf, to the sweet and delicious raspberry quark, or the savory egg sandwich, your palate will be delighted.

Although the owner is Swiss, the baked goods match the best I've had through out Germany, Switzerland and Austria. They have many varieties you won't find elsewhere (even at the Hungarian Bakery opposite St. John's Devine UWS Manhattan). Well worth the trip up Hudson St. Hoboken from Carlos'

You cannot get anything here that does not taste absolutely delicious. Any time I have a hankering for something sweet this is where I go. The staff is always friendly and willing to explain what items are or what's in them. My stand by favorite is the chocolate mousse cake, but it's really all good.

this is a cute, small bakery/café on busy Washington street in Hoboken. One of the best cups of coffee I ever had. The rolls & pastries are fresh & delicious. Staff are helpful & friendly. Can get crowded but worth the wait!

The Old German Bakery makes fanstastic desserts. It is a great place to come in, order a dessert, and rest while eating a delicious after dinner treat. They have great Tiramisu and chocolate pear struedel. I have not had a bad dessert yet and I have tried almost all their offerings.

Not many true bakeries in Raleigh so this gem in Hoboken was a highlight of our trip. Beautifully crafted pastries that tasted even better than they looked. Great cup of coffee too. Stopped there three times in five days...tasted a variety of pastries over those visits...would be surprised if everything else in the case was not just as good.
