“Great hard rolls and more.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Del Ponte's is the kind of bakery I grew up with in NJ, and sadly, just can't seem to find now that I live in PA.
As soon as you enter the store, the aroma of yummy baked items greets you. In the mood for a cup of coffee and a single pastry? They can take care of you, and you can enjoy sitting outside at one of the tables and chair sets that are outside for patrons.
Looking for freshly baked bread and rolls? It's here. Oh! The hard rolls. So tasty.
Whole cakes and pies are available - more flavors and styles than you can imagine - custom decorating available.
Just want a single slice of carrot cake? Want to get an assortment of cake slices? They can do that for you. Individual desserts are available, as well.
Italian butter cookies, galore, as well as biscotti in just about any flavor you can think of.
This place is a gem. Believe me when I tell you that they are a treasure and not to be taken for granted. Support them and keep independent, family owned businesses like this going strong. You'll be glad you did.

“Traditional family owned bakery”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

You dont find bakeries like this too often any longer, and this place is what every small family run bakery was like from years ago. We love coming to Bradley and hitting Del Ponte's, it's one of the highlights of our stay at the Jersey shore!! Cookies, bread & rolls, pies, pastries, cakes, biscotti, canolis, cheesecake, eclairs...they have it all!!! And it's all DELICIOUS!!!

“I go there too often!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I can never seem to go to Bradley Beach without going to this bakery at least once, often more than that. From fresh rolls to black-and-white cookies to almond horns to pasties and cakes, this place is a true guilty pleasure. I also should note that the young people working behind the counter are always friendly and smiling, which I suppose I would be too, if I worked there. (I'd also end up weighing about 300 pounds.)

Note: This is not a sit-down place; it's a neighborhood bakery. However, there is a very good pizza place around the corner--also Del Ponte's.
