Had the pleasure of getting to take a picture with Maddalena Castano who is super sweet! The cupcake was great, the prices weren't expensive at all. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Wasn't a long line. Well worth the trip we took to go.

We stopped in to Carlo's after visiting the city and grabbed a cheesecake and cannoli. The cheesecake was subpar and the cannoli was good but not great. The wait for the bakery is to be expected, but not worth the price for average treats.

The order system was a little confusing at first and the wait was long but we were very pleased with our purchases. It would be nice if they posted the prices.

Loved to visit the original home of cake boss. Hoboken is a really nice place to visit! The store itseft is very crowded. The fastest way to be served is by bying your sweets on the internet!

Overhyped bakery, way overpriced, which is so sad, before he was famous, it was a great little bakery with decent prices that we could all afford; now that fame has gone to their heads, they charge ridiculous prices for so-so bakery items. Better heading over to another local bakery.

Couldn't try this popular strawberries in dark and white chocolate. Were awesome. Real Italian cannoli is something very different and anyway this wasn't nothing special at all, too sweet the cream and no ricotta inside. Wafer that contains it is medium. Reasonable price but cannoli was too big so it weighted more and for this price is better take lots... More

A few very good items (lobster tails, cream puffs) and consistent product but not superior to other bakeries you can find. Service is unhelpful and inefficient -- staff when we visited made a lot of guests feel unwelcome. They are thriving on being famous but the customer experience isn't that great. Take a picture outside with the kids and keep... More

My daughter has been to Carlos Bakery before and said as this was my first visit we must have a cupcake. The town of Hoboken is worth a visit and the bakery shop was just amazing. You really do not know which to choose. I had a strawberry cupcake and my daughter had an chocolate one. The staff were very... More

We are fans of the show and could not wait to go here. We arrived at about 10 am and there was no wait at all. The staff was excellent. The canolis and lobster tails are delicious. However, the brownies are to die for. They are a mist have. The prices are reasonable and not over inflated at all. We... More
