European bakery in Wayne, NJ became my favorite haunt. You name any specialty baked goodie, they will have it and not just one or two choices but several. What impressed me most was the fineness and quality of their products all displayed in 5 foot tall refrigerated cases wrapped around the huge store on three sides. The Flaky Pastry Log... More

So great to have a bakery so close that is a sure thing. I have never had anything I didn't love from Gencarelli's. But the absolute favorite is definitely the pignoli cookies!

This local bakery has a great number of pastries and reasonably priced cakes that are worth the sometimes long wait on Holidays.

Went to get cupcakes specifically and my tiramisu cupcake was so dry and stale I couldn't even take a bite. Walked back in gave it back. I don't care for my money or to speak to a manager I'll never go back. Cupcakesare supposed to be moist! Simple.

This place, Both Locations, have EXCELLENT Selections !!! My ONLY Complaint was the Staff at the smaller location... they were more worried about grabbing their phones to text than to help us out with our questions..... nothing was marked in the Cases as to what the Pies & Cakes were, nor the Prices... I wasn't happy at all the eye... More
