I have been a Cake Boss fan for years! I have loved watching the show and feel like I know the family, so it was only fitting that we visit the bakery while on our trip up the East Coast. My husband, son and I arrived around 11:30am and happily found no line! We entered the bakery and were greeted.... More

For those who love cake Boss, this is the place to see if you can find parking. One note: It's very busy at this location and finding curb parking is extremely difficult. There are 2 parking lots nearby but they will cost you $20, so allow time to visit. Carlos isn't the location they current film at but is the... More

Fantastic!!! Daughter is a huge fan of Cake Boss and we finally were able to make it to the original location. ☺️. It was great to see them making pastries and cakes right in plain view. The selection was amazing (as we bought an unnecessary large amount... Hee hee). And, they all tasted out of this world!!! The staff was... More

Our family stopped in while travelling from CT to NJ. We came by around 10am on a Tuesday to grab a late breakfast. As mentioned in other reviews, parking is hard to find. We were eventually able to park right up the street. The bakery looks very nice. It is bright and welcoming. There were only a couple other families... More

After reading the reviews, I was surprised to walk up and not find a line in front of the building. We walked in the shop to find a large orderly group. I pulled ticket number 8 and they were serving ticket 62. I'd guess we waited about 45 minutes before being served. Although the items purchased were good, I wouldn't... More

It was worth the subway and path train to Hoboken. Cakes amazing, if one of the family had been there that would have been literally "the icing on the cake"

We only visited because of the TV show. The place was very crowded get a ticket if you wanted to purchase something. I did try the tthe lobster claw it was tasty but not my favorite dessert. The service was fast. The inside looks smaller compared to the TV show.

Carlo's makes some of the most terrific cookies around. But be prepared to wait quite a while to get them or their cakes, cannolis or anything else. They're nice, but beware, there are times when there's a crowd and they should be taking numbers to ensure equitable service to customers but they aren't.

The chocolate mousse cream puffs were delicious. The cannolis were good. Long lines, fast service. However, some of the employees were not very friendly.

Of course had to stop in since we were in the area. It is not very well organized to get your order placed etc, many cranky people complaining, even we had to ask several times to be serviced, people cutting in etc. First time trying the cannolis, super sweet and yummy! Also got some cookies which were good.
