Del Ponte's Bakery is simply the best bakery at the Jersey Shore. It's a good old fashioned bakery serving up super Italian pastries.

We stopped here wanting to get an after dinner coffee and desert. We asked at the bakery if we could sit outside and they said yes, so we did. Seems like the pizzeria part doesn't communicate with the bakery part because we were asked to get up and put our name on the wait list. So, we decided to just get some pastries to go. Having lived in Brooklyn many years, walking into the bakery brought back many memories of those wonderful smells. We bought some cookies and pastries to go. Everything was quite expensive and we were quite disappointed. They were not very tasty at all; no comparison to Brooklyn.

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.

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!!!
