Stollen to die for!!!!!!!!

There are quite a few bakeries in the area but NONE taste like it was actually made in the bakery except for this one. The stollen tastes like it just came out of my mom's kitchen. Quality ingredients, fresh, attention to detail, they have it all!!!!!

Great people, great bread and great cakes! I love the Italian bread and the cakes are always decorated so beautifully. The owner, Joe, is the nicest guy and is very accommodating. Best bakery by far!

At one point I have tried almost all of the baked good in this bakery & many of there prepared foods. I can't say anything bad about any of it, and I have never been disappointed

I moved to the area 10 years ago from North Jersey and missed great Italian bread. Stumbled upon "Big Apple"and never looked back! Not only the best Italian bread but ALL the breads and rolls are superb. Now moving on to the cakes, pies, pastries, pies, donuts, danish, cookies and lest not forget the best apple strudel. It's all amazing.... More

I have never been disappointed in anything I have purchased here, cakes, pastries, cookies, bread, all good.

Most recent purchase was a cheese coffee cake ring that I brought to work, it was well received and at 5.99 not... More

Great Rye Bread. Especially the German. All other selections are wonderful and priced right. Nice to have a "real" bakery in the hood.
