Best baked bread!

Best fresh baked bread daily and friendly atmosphere. The only thing I don't like is that it's hard to get to in the summer with the tourist traffic.

The breads are outstanding, especially the 7 grain and rye. Pecan Coffee cake and crumb cake are equally delicious. Come early on the week ends and also get lunch!!

While I don't frequent the bakery often I am always satisfied by the quality of the products and the pleasantness of the staff. One time I asked for the asiago bread which was not available; however, they took my order and I had it the next day. It is outstanding. Always receive complements when I bring the cakes and/or pastry... More

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. The shopping plaza is getting really run down and even the supermarket doesn't have a lot of business. Maybe that is why their selection has gotten smaller and not as fresh...Ether way it makes me upset because... More

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.
