We took our church group and make sure that we stopped and we're glad that we did the food was great so much to choose from it's not really easy to find a parking spot but it is worth the stop

It was worth the hour drive just wish it was more organization for the customers and it needs a latrine.

Overated! Long lines, long wait, horrible service system. First a girl takes your order...then you wait about 30 minutes to get your order and pay. Not to mention, standing...I wanted to stop by because I was visiting and because I have seen it on TV, but will never come back. Cashiers are way too slow and there are not enough... More

An over due review BUT I love love watching Cake Boss but to go to the actual first ever Carlo's Bakery was the icing on the cake. The hoboken team were lovely to speak and very welcoming too, especially Annette for looking after me (thank you 😘😘) First time having a cannoli and loved it!! Too many choices to choose... More

Was attracted by the celebrity hype surrounding the main operator of this family business. The artistry on display was very impressive and there was a never ending queue of patrons who had apparently phoned in orders. This is a pricey establishment and definitely not for the uninitiated.Apparently the Apple crumble pie goes very quickly as the space was noticeably empty.... More

Buddy Valestro is nothing if not a TV showman. After many years pioneering his family bakery, he crashed onto the TV with his iconic TV show about a crazy New Jersey Italian crew running a family bakery. It was loud, brash and slightly beguiling in drawing you into a culture of la familia, cakes and passion. The original bakery, in... More

No doubt about it being the local attraction - long, long lines with tons of people. Still, lobster tails are to die for and, in general, great place to visit if you like baking and/or a fan of the show.

I have been working in Hoboken for over 12 years now. Carlo's was a bakery that I visited often and enjoyed everything that they made. Looks like fame may have affected the quality. For the last few years and most my most recent visit last week, I can tell you I will no longer go to the bakery. Black and... More

I only go to Carlo's to get for other people who don't live in Hoboken or local area. I'm not a fan of their goods or service. The lines make it look appealing and popular but they are mostly due to slow service because the counter girls are often busier talking to each other rather than giving full attention to... More
