This review is long overdue. From what I've been reading about recent visits by other travelers, our experience was not atypical. We visited Carlo's Bakery two years ago because it was on our bucket list of things to do when we visited the area. It was on a sunny, early fall day, around 10:00 in the morning. We joined the...

I came here with my fiance - as an avid baker and lover of Cake Boss, I've always wondered, "Above all, does it TASTE good??" Well, when we decided to go to Hoboken, this was the top on our list of places to visit. The shop/bakery itself is just a bit underwhelming, as anyone can make anything look good. Even... More

I went to Carlo's bakery in April 2016. The food was great and the prices ok. Also it was way less crowded than I expected! Better than going to the Carlo's Bakery located in port authority

I am a huge fan so specially made a visit to Hoboken for Carlos Bakery and only to be disappointed by knowing that you have to pay for cooking class to meet Carlos himself . Any way I had a coffee and canolie

How can a bakery, that is supposed to be the REAL ITALIAN, put the cinnamon on the Cannoli? (And I won't talk about the unflavored ricotta cream). Overrated at all...

Simply gorgeous place where to have a break during a hot sunny day...sweets of every type are here available and they taste really good! Try them! Aragosta ties and cannoli are the best!

Couldn't visit Hoboken without going to Carlos Sadly none of the familiar faces were around on the day we visited but the lobster tail, cupcake and coffee were worth it

Stopped here for a cupcake and had no regrets. This is where it all began and it was busy with hungry people buying all the sweet treats on offer.
