Our family made sure to visit Carlo's when we visited our family in NJ. We are fans of both Cake Boss and Next Great Baker and came all the way from California to taste the treats. We visited in the afternoon and there was no line. We only waited a couple of minutes. The selection, even in the afternoon, was great. There were many yummy items to choose from. We chose regular cannolis, chocolate covered cannolis, lobster tails, a tiny cheesecake, the chocolate peanut butter cupcake and some cookies. Every thing we bought was scrumptious! We were glad we visited......would love to order lobster tails, our favorite, to be shipped to us!! If you visit...make sure you feed the meter in the spaces in front of the bakery. We got a pricey ticket when it expired before we got out the door......

Visited the bakery yeterday. My Birthday. We came from South Jersey.I am an avid fan of the show. We waited on line for 3 hours and by the time we got into the bakery it was very anti-climactic. I expected to see at least someone from the family or the show but all they had working there was a bunch of kids. Let's face it you don't wait 3 hours just to buy pasteries.The staff was not friendly and did not even smile. Not attentive to you when ordering. Not what I expected. The show gives you a whole different feel for the place than what it really is. It was so crowded you could hardly see in the cases and what was there was not impressive. When we got home we discovered we did not even recieve an item we ordered. When I called the bakery this morning Danielle said you are suppossed to check your boxes when you leave. Out on the sidewalk I guess! So disappointed in The Cake Boss, I don't even think I'll watch again.

Most amazing Crumb cake EVER, Best chocolate cupcake with peanutbutter frosting, OMG, it is to DIE for... Red Velvet Cupcake with Cream Cheese frosting AMAZING too. Long line outside, but was expecting it, come on Buddy and family is THE BOMB, got to see "Hottie, hothead" WooHoo! LOL Def worth the trip, I can't give 5 stars because the little twits working the counters could def use a little tude adjustments, I waited outside in 25 degrees to spend 70 dollars on cupcakes, they had better smile and be a little nicer!!! But over all I LOVE CAKE BOSS!!! Yummy, and when I visit family in Jersey again, I will make another trip to Hoboken!!!

Half the 5 star reviews on this website are from TLC viewers who have never even stepped foot in Hoboken. The girls behind the counter are always talking amongst eachother and couldn't care less about good customer service. I purchased two over-priced lobster tails that were undoubtably stale. Carlo's is not nearly as good as nearby Brother's Bakery in Kearny or Mazur's in Lyndhurst.

The only reason this isnt 5 stars, is because of the line to go in. It was actually snowing/raining/ice when we were there, and when we left the line was down the block. The earlier you get there, the shorter the line is by the way. We probably waited around 45 minutes just to go in the bakery, another 30 to get called, and then probably 20 minutes after that we finally left the store. It was a great experience, and I'll be back to order custom cakes and all. Another thing, once it started raining a lot, they put more people in the bakery, which was nice, but you get squished beyond compare. They have about 10 workers there, and when i was there I met all the sisters, and mary even went into the crowd to take pictures. Anyways, now to all the sugary fun the store has. We got a chocolate mousse, with strawberries cake. And omg, it is amazing. Definitely worth the 40 dollars. Then we got a bunch of pastries, about 14. Anything with strawberries was really good. The canolis, omg, even my step dad who doesn't like sugary stuff, said it was good. Then we got chocolate covered strawberries. we chose not to get a chocolate box, because those are a little overpriced, 38$. but just the strawberries were 18 a pound. and they were worth it. they are HUGE strawberries, and we got 9 of them. all decorated really nice, and tastes wonderful. We spent 90 dollars at the bakery, and it was worth every single penny. I went to the bakery to see if buddys cakes tasted good and looked good, and they did. If you have the chance to go to the bakery, go, its an experience worth your while.

Fame has gotten to their head. Especially the loud mouth blonde one. They need to watch out as if they don't have customers, they don't have a business. I don't care how good the cake is, I expect to be treated with respect. Shame on Buddy, for allowing his sisters to treat his customers this way.

Haven't ever eaten anything from there, but I love the show Cake Boss. My granddaughter and I watch it all the time, it amazes me what they can make. Would love to come to Hoboken sometime and try one of Buddy's pastries. I live in Elizabethtown Kentucky.

My daughter is getting married in January and I was thinking about ordering her cake from Carlos's Bakery. I am doing my "homework" and reading everyone's review's, going through the website, etc. After reading numerous negative reviews regarding Carlo's customer service I was leary. However, I thought that I would give them the benefit of the doubt, so I called for additional specific information. As soon as someone answered the phone, I began to speak.........."good morning, I would like some information" and I was immediately cut off by a voice saying "hold !!!!". About four minutes later, someone returned to the phone and could not answer any of my questions. I felt like I was putting her out by calling and felt very rushed. She eventually transferred me to someone who did answer my questions, but since this was my first impression............I decided to take my business someplace else as I can not chance the fact that my thousands of dollars will be treated like this. Thank you for giving me a place to express my concerns. Upstate New York

BEST CAKE EVER!
I had the pleasure of ordering TWO cakes from Carlo's Bakery in 3 weeks. One from the case and one very elaborate "custom" one that Remy designed with me for a bridal shower.
I must admit the cost of the second was a stretch, but the end result was worth EVERY last cent and then some.
I couldn't have been more pleased with his time given to my consultation, his phone calls to me during the last days in preparing the cake and the attention to the detail in the final product.
I will most definitely be returning to them for ALL of my future cake needs. Aside from the designs, they truly have the best TASTING cakes around.

Carlo's Bakery is outstanding. It's a beautiful place, inside & outside. I am so thankful that I got a chance to take a trip down there, it was definitely worth it, no doubt about it. I got a cake for my 16th birthday, and it's absolutely gorgeous.It was signed by Buddy himself and the detail on it is incredible, it's so incredible i almost feel bad eating the cake, but I'm sure it tastes just as good as it looks. The athmosphere in the bakery was great, everyone was happy, cheerful, and very helpful. There aren't enough words to express how amazing Carlo's Bakery really is, you really have to go there for yourself and see, it's truely amazing. I fell in love with the show the first time I saw it and I've fallen in love with the bakery the first time I saw it. Carlo's Bakery, is by far, the best. I have no complaints what so ever.

When we asked our 11 year old Grandson where he wanted to go for his summer vacation, his only answer was "Carlo's Bakery and maybe I can meet Buddy", as he watches all of his shows. Even though we told him there would be very little chance of meeting him, he still wants to come and see the bakery. We'll be brinigng him all the way from Arizona, but after reading some of the comments, I hope he won't be disappointed.

They may have great deserts but their customer service is horrible. They've allowed their popularity to go their heads and now they treat the customer whether in person or over the phone very poorly. I wanted to order a cake and it was such a big deal that I chose not to place the order. Shame on them! They answer the phone as if they're doing YOU a favor and they're rude and not helpful. A desert is a desert -- Get over yourself Carlos!!

I've never been to this bakery, coming from massachusetts, but I am thinking about trekking down there with a friend to see for myself just how awesome this place is! Anxious to try a lobster tail, as well as the lard~fried cannoli's! It will be worth the trip, I am guaranteed sure :) Want to give a REAL rating of "World Class" to this establishment! Salute' Mia Familia!

I have read some not-so-great reviews about the customer service at Carlo's, but I was thrilled with my experience there. Everyone was very helpful- the bakery was very crowded, but there was a door man regulating the crowd at the front door. Additionally, we were served very quickly and then sat outside and enjoyed our cupcakes.

I ordered a Red Velvet Cake for my wifes birthday March 16, 2010, and let me tell you it was without a doubt the best cake I've ever eaten, and I'm not a cake eater more of a cheese cake fan. This Red Velvet cake was so delicious it actually feeds ten people cutting normal slices, and six if you cut them extra large. Between my wife and myself we almost ate the whole cake, that's how good it was!!! I'll never go anywhere else!!!! The BEST BAKERY in the Tri-State Area, and I come from Staten Island!!!!!

Drove 2 1/2 hours to visit Carlos. Waited in line, in the rain, for 1/2 hour and another 1/2 hour inside to place our order. WORTH EVERY MINUTE!! Great experience all around. Adorable, friendly, knowledgeable young woman helping us. Delicious pastry and crumb cake. Can't wait to go back!

Carlos' Bakery was always one of a kind HOWEVER now that they are Big Time TLC Cake Boss' they have become so star struck they forget where they came from and the people who carried them all this time till now. If it weren't for their loyal repeat customers they wouldn't be where they are now! I was told it would take 4 months to make a simple butter cream cake due to their high volume of orders. Mazur's in Lynhurst was glad to make it for us ASAP and the taste was amazing!! Looks like we found a new bakery that knows how to treat its customers!

Anyone who thinks carlo's bakery is anything short of fabulous is absolutely ridiculous. I was born and raised in hoboken and carlo's is our hometown, family bakery. From wedding cakes to Sunday pastries, everyone in my family knows carlo's is the way to go. If you are not a frequent visitor, you must at least once try a lobster tail pastry and order a cake for a special occassion with the fresh fruit banana custard or filling with strawberries...mmmm wonderful! Don't fret if you can't decide between the two...ask for the cake to be half and half and they will accommodate you! Enjoy!

People Crack me up though! The lady who changes her mind about the cake when it is already made and then blames the bakery for not refunding her money because she bought it some place else cheaper!!! Who does that???? Buddy you should post all the most ridiculous complaints under the heading "You can't make this s--- up!!! Keep up the great show it cracks me up.

On our way to NYC, we stopped in Hoboken to go to Carlo's Bakery. What a waste of time! The staff was not friendly. My mother ordered Halloween cupcakes and a strawberry shortcake. The young girl behind the counter (Italian looking, short, young, dark brown hair in a pony tail) filled the box of cupcakes and then forcefully coughed right on them. My mother's back was turned, but I was looking right at the girl. I don't know if it was on purpose or not, but who wants to eat a cupcake that has been coughed on? We didn't want to make a scene and the nasty sister with the blonde hair was working, so we just threw them out. With that said, the strawberry shortcake was good.

We drove 7 hours from Cape Cod to just go to Carlos. I think their specialty must be the cakes because we ordered the cannoli, eclairs and cupcakes and they were so so. STaff was extremely rude! We really felt like we were rushed in and out and would never recommend anyone making the trip there because it's just not worth it

Stopped by Carlo's Bakery 9/18/09 after watching the show on TLC. I purchased a chocolate cake, cannoli's, lobster tails and they all were the best I have ever had! The lobster tails were UNBELIEVABLE as was the cannoli's. The cake was delicious as well and remained moist and delicious for days. The staff was efficient ,courteous and patient. A tour bus stopped in and even with all the chaos handled the crowd quickly. Buddy came down to say hello and was friendly and gracious to all. I went back 3 days later and bought more lobster tails, cannolis as well as cookies, mousse cake, napoleans and a variety of other treats and they were all OUTSTANDING. I will definitely go back each time I pass through NJ it was worth the trip and I recommend highly.

How could I order a wedding cake from you? But the only thing is that we live in Florida. We are looking for a good price and good quality in a wedding cake.

I've had pastries and cakes from all over NJ, Brooklyn, NYC, etc. The pastries and cakes and EVERYTHING are delicious at Carlo's. Ok, a little pricey, but it's Hoboken and a lot of hard work goes into running a place like that. any true italian would not be put off by the personalities of the owners or workers. they are just personalities...not attitudes! stop complaining and enjoy your food. by the way, i would not refund someone either just because they changed their mind to by a cheaper birthday cake. store credit was appropriate.

We bought a cake that looked like a bottle of expensive scotch. It was amazing how they created the label detail and it was all made from sugar. looking at other posts, I think this place is better suited for special occasion cakes or mayby a wedding. You can pick up a sheet cake at Costco but if you want something a lot more unique and impressive they??ll do a great job. They even featured our cake on their website. Take a look. Carlosbakery.com

Yesterday I ordered a cake for my son's birthday at Carlos Bakery a week before his birthday. It cost $126 for a simple sheet cake. 5 minutes after leaving the store I realized that was a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a birthday cake and I called them to ask if they would refund my money. The woman who answered the phone said "sure just come in the morning and someone will refund your credit card." I went there today and they absolutely refused to do it. They would only give me store credit. I had already ordered another cake at another place and now I will have spent over $200 on a birthday cake. When I tried to plead my case without even raising my voice the woman at Carlos bakery said that if I didn't leave the store immediately with my store credit she would call someone to have me excorted out. I was shocked. I've been their customer for over 16 years. Please be careful when dealing with them.

Had a Napoleon cake from Carlo's for our sons' graduation - phenomenal. Our family visting from upstate NY could not get over it.

Cannot wait to have another one of these days!

Carlos's bakery is a little too comercial. The prices are very inflated and the quality is just good. If I pay nearly $15 for a small dessert, I would hope it would be out of this world. They hire a young staff to work the weekends, so you'll have to be patient as they talk to each other and take their time helping the customers. Overall it's a decent place, I think they are just living off their reputation a little too much.

PROS: Convenient location
CONS: High prices

This is one of the best wedding cake places in the country, they have the most amazing cakes. Walking by it they have the coolest looking cakes in the windows. The pastries that they make are really good. The cakes are tasty and fun, you should check them out and see what they have for you.

The best Italian pasteries, Rum Cake in northern Jersey. Where else but on Washington St. in Hoboken would you find a bakery like this. Proffessional quality!!! reasonably priced. Delicous canoles. I usually get my annual birthday rum cake here. Great experience.Clean establishment. Parking is rough as is any where in Hoboken.Be prepared to walk 2-3 blocks.Well worth it. NYC residents Carlos is 1 block from the Hoboken rail station. Open M-F 6:30 am to 8 pm Saturday 7am to 8pm Sunday 7am to 6 pm .address is 95 Washington St. Hoboken, NJ

I loved this place. It gets pretty busy and they have excellent cakes. They made me a beautiful sheet for my sons first birthday. They put his picture on it and sprayed it with purple and green to match our Mardi Gras theme. Everyone was soooo impressed and they all enjoyed it very much.
