I've bought baked goods from here several times! Their apple strudel, cookies, cheese Danish, and Elephant ears are delicious. The ravioli are also very good.

Here you can purchase confections to impress your guests. Also breads for special occasions. We have historically had commemorative cakes prepared here. Quality ingredients are used. The presentation is first class. All items on display are fresh.

We purchase desserts here a couple times a month! My husband's favorite is the crumb cake! I like the cheese puffs, apple or cheesecake with pineapple strudel. They are very busy around the holidays and on the weekends they have a good amount of customers. Easily one of the best bakeries in Manahawkin!

There are quite a few bakeries in the area but NONE taste like it was actually made in the bakery except for this one. The stollen tastes like it just came out of my mom's kitchen. Quality ingredients, fresh, attention to detail, they have it all!!!!!

Great people, great bread and great cakes! I love the Italian bread and the cakes are always decorated so beautifully. The owner, Joe, is the nicest guy and is very accommodating. Best bakery by far!

At one point I have tried almost all of the baked good in this bakery & many of there prepared foods. I can't say anything bad about any of it, and I have never been disappointed

I moved to the area 10 years ago from North Jersey and missed great Italian bread. Stumbled upon "Big Apple"and never looked back! Not only the best Italian bread but ALL the breads and rolls are superb. Now moving on to the cakes, pies, pastries, pies, donuts, danish, cookies and lest not forget the best apple strudel. It's all amazing.... More
