We came here after dinner for dessert. We ordered two cannolis, which were excellent. It is a nice bakery and also offers a seating area where people can chat and have coffee with their desserts.

I have never been to a Bakery where they are out of stock on almost everything. They had exactly 4 cakes for Thanksgiving in their displays, 3 mini pies only in the cherry flavor and the shelves were looking very bare. I was quite surprised being it was the Sunday before Thanksgiving. My family decided not to trek down to... More

Carlo is apparently a television star of some magnitude. We held a family reunion and many of the people from Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Vermont had heard of him and were very excited to see and enjoy one of his cakes.

Terrible as the assistant could not be bothered to find out if any cakes were suitable for vegetarians,maybe she did not understand what a vegetarian can eat,however it was was her lack of trying to find out from a senior person.Would not go their again.

I enjoy the cable show and couldn't wait to sample some of "buddy's" culinary delights. I am now addicted to the awesome cupcakes with a thick coating of fudge on the top. A chocolate lovers fantasy.

Lobster Tails were Awesome. All that I have tried were great + this location is so much easier than Hoboken. Parking was a little easier, but best part - no line. I went in told her what I wanted she boxed it up, i paid and was back in car quickly.
