Since our family always watched Cake Boss, we had to visit the bakery while we were in NY. Just took the subway over to the Hoboken side. Was a pretty quick ride. There was quite a line to get in. We had to walk over to a drug store to get tix to be in line over there, then slowly... More

I had heard it was just okay. We tried the lobster tail, cannoli cheesecake, and pecan wedge. All of them were amazing! I wanted to go back before our trip ended, but we just ran out of time. It's worth the trip over to Hoboken.

While visiting family in New Jersey, we decided to stop by Carlo's Bakery because we're fans of the tv show. The line was unbelievably long. It went all the way down the block, across the street and down the other block passed the CVS. You get a number when you get there because they serve by number. The place itself... More

With the Cake Boss TV series and all the other shows, a trip to NYC can't be complete without a visit to Hoboken's Carlo's Bakery. Buddy and his family have become so popular, in Italy as well, that when you step into the shop, it's like visiting family. The trip from NYC and back costs 2,75$ per person per ride.... More

We made a pit stop in Hoboken just to stop here and it was well worth it. There was a line, but shorter than we expected, so it was a fairly quick in and out. We settled on the lobster tails and they are soooo worth every penny! We'll definitely stop again when we visit the city.

From seeing the show multiple times I already knew the food from this bakery would be phenomenal, and I was so right! The chocolate covered strawberries were amazing the strawberry shortcake tower was delicious! Make sure you aren't in a rush because there is so much stuff to choose from and the line is always long! Even in the slow... More

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
