Bakeries, like barbers, beauticians and beer, are very personal choices. As a recent transplant in Ocean County, the process of finding favorites is often tedious. Happily, I've found my baker and only by accident. Simply wonderful.

Big Apple has been around for a while, and used to be excellent. Unfortunately the last two times I went I was disappointed.

We have shopped at Big Apple Bakery for years. Anything they make in the store is great! Key Lime Pie, rugelach are my favorites. My husband was there yesterday, and there was a sign that they're selling after 28 years. I sure hope the new owner doesn't change a thing!

A wrong turn landed us at the Big Apple Bakery. We indulged in fresh semolina bread, lemon ricotta cupcakes, cookies, and took some frozen ravioli back to the vacation rental. We were so impressed that we bought a cooler and stocked up on treats (the homemade gnocchi is to die for) to take home to our families after vacation.

Big Apple bakery did the cake for our wedding. They listened exactly to what I wanted (even though it looked nothing like the cakes in their inspiration book) and it turned out beautiful. AND it tasted amazing! The cake was moist and the frosting was light and fluffy with fresh strawberries inside. Also prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend... More

Simply delicious. Do not pass this bakery without dropping in and trying something. Their custard and fruit tarts are the best I have ever tasted.

Just walking in here makes your mouth water. We have been there 3 times already this weekend getting crusty breads, pastries, and a chocolate cake which was so delicious. They have dinner selections on Friday & Saturday's as well and looking forward to trying some of them.

Best place to get all your baked goods.If you need a fancy cake this is it. Pies are amazing, and cookies were fresh and chewy.
