North Jersey


cannoli with cherries

Where: Giorgio’s Italian & French Pastry Shop, 112 Washington Street, Hoboken
Details: There’s always a debate among cannoli enthusiasts on who has the best in the state. For more than 35 years, Giorgio Pasticceria Italian Bakery in Hoboken has been winning crowds over with their better-than-Nonna’s homemade treats, but nothing beats the Sicilian-style cannoli. They come in a variety of flavors, but chocolate dipped is probably the fan favorite.
Why I like it: Pick up your pastry and enjoy it while strolling downtown Hoboken, a great spot for people-watching.
More Info: No website (they’re that old school) but you can click here to call.

Maple Bacon Donut

donuts with various toppings

Where: Montclair Bread Company, 113 Walnut Street, Montclair
Details: Montclair Bread Company’s donut tower, with mini donuts and donut holes stacked up high, is something of a legend. Even more of a legend is their maple bacon donut. Maple-flavored dough is fried up to puffy perfection and glazed with more maple and strips of maple bacon for a sweet and salty treat that you won’t soon forget. Have your own idea for a great donut? They can make any flavor and color combo you can come up with. Shout-out to whoever invented the Fruity Pebbles donut, btw.
Why I like it: Having a birthday party? Order a 10” speciality giant donut that will delight your guests!

chocolate covered s'more

Where: The Jersey S’more Company, 16 Jefferson Court, Montville
Details: The Jersey S’more Company in Montville is all about s’mores. Each handmade s’more begins with a top-secret cookie batter recipe, and is enhanced with the highest quality marshmallow. The treat is then smothered in velvety milk, dark or white chocolate. Want to customize your snack? JSC has an expansive list of s’more compliments that includes crushed Oreo, toffee bits, sweet ‘n’ salty pretzel, toasted coconut with or without walnuts, sea salt caramel, peppermint dust, broken M&Ms, white coconut with colored crystals, graham dust, rainbow sprinkles, hammered Butterfinger, broken Reese’s Pieces, sugar balls, chocolate drizzle, salted pretzel and more! The choices are endless, and yes — you should try them all.
Why I like it: When your entire menu is dedicated to the s’more, you know it’s going to be perfection. Share the love by picking up a large S’monster S’more to thank a teacher or coach for all their hard work.
More Info: You can find them on Facebook, or click here to call.

S’mores Cupcake

Where: Sweet Avenue Bakeshop, 153 Park Avenue, Rutherford
Details: Living a vegan lifestyle? Have a dairy intolerance? Sweet Avenue Bakeshop is New Jersey’s premier vegan bakery, serving up delicious cupcakes made fresh daily. The s’mores cupcake is chocolate cake filled and topped with vanilla-marshmallow frosting, chocolate ganache, gelatin-free marshmallows and graham crackers.
Why I like it: Printed edible image mini cupcakes are available by special order, so you can customize birthday treats with any image you want!
More Info: SweetAvenueBakeshop.com or you can click here to call.

Central Jersey

Crepe Cake

crepe cake with flowers

Where: Jammin’ Crepes, 20 Nassau Street, Princeton
Details: Everyone loves a good crepe, but have you tasted a crepe cake? This delicate dessert is 20 layers of crepes, customized with your favorite fillings and toppings. The Orange Blossom cake (available in gluten-free, too) is a favorite.
Why I like it: They even make tiered wedding cakes, comprised solely of crepes and filling.
More Info: Visit the website or you can click here to call.

Philly Fluff Cake

boxes labeled philly fluff

Where: Natale’s Summit Bakery, 185 Broad Street, Summit
Details: There are lots of cakes, cookies and pastry at Natale’s, but the house specialty is their famous Philly Fluff cake. It’s a soft pound cake that is light, fluffy and moist; it also comes in flavors like blueberry with coffee cake topping.
Why I like it: Pick up a Philly Fluff cake the next time you are entertaining out-of-town guests. It’s big enough to share, plus it will guarantee a return visit!

Jersey Shore

Boston Creme Brioche

boston creme brioche buns

Where: The Flaky Tart, 145 First Ave, Atlantic Highlands
Details: This charming neighborhood bakeshop is stuffed full of artisan pastries and desserts that are almost too pretty to eat, but do it anyway. And make sure to order the Boston creme brioche when you’re there. This fluffy homemade donut comes with a glaze of chocolate and pastry cream filling. Seasonal flavors like coconut maple rum and bourbon apple cider with pecans sell out fast, so get there early.
Why I like it: Not only do The Flaky Tart’s pastries taste delicious, their presentation is impeccable and totally Instagram-worthy, whether you’re ordering the brioche or a fruit tartlet.
More Info: Visit the website or you can click here to call.

S’Mores Peace Pie

smore made with graham cookies

Where: Peace Pie, 326 Carpenters Lane, Cape May
Details: Don’t know what a peace pie is? It’s an ice-cream sandwich, but better! Nestled between two cookies is a combination of ice-cream and pie filling. The S’Mores Peace Pie has graham cracker cookies, chocolate ice-cream, chocolate mousse and marshmallows.
Why I like it: Hard to believe, but these cool treats can also be shipped directly to your home!
More Info: Visit the website or you can click here to call.

South Jersey


cupcakes with swirled cream topping

Where: Indulgence Cupcakery, 43 Kings Highway, Suite 2, Haddonfield
Details: You can’t go wrong with a cupcake at Indulgence. They have all the necessary flavors to keep purists happy. (Think chocolate and vanilla with matching buttercream.) But the true treat comes in flavors like strawberry lemonade, s’mores, jalapeno and chocolate peanut butter pretzel cupcakes.
Why I like it: They give each day’s leftover cupcakes to local charities like the Ronald McDonald House, bringing a smile to those who need it most.
More Info: Visit the website or you can click here to call.


multicolored macarons

Where: Miel Patisserie, Village Walk Shopping Center, 1990 Route 70 East, Cherry Hill
Details: French desserts are the focus at this Cherry Hill patisserie. And you can’t do French without doing macarons, the classic, and oh-so-trendy treat. The flavors change daily and there are gluten-free options. Each bite is light with the perfect amount of crispy cookie shell and sweet filling.
Why I like it: Bite-size and beautiful, these make the perfect dessert platter for a bridal shower, baby shower or a little girl’s birthday tea party.
