Whether you’re planning that next celebration or you simply have a sweet tooth, Jersey City has some of the best cake shops and bakeries in the region. Wondering where to begin? Here are three of our favorite bakeries near Vantage Collection.
Dulce de Leche Bakery
Taking a modern approach to the classic Argentine bakery cafe, Dulce de Leche Bakery has made a name for itself in Hudson County since 2007. Offering custom cakes, scrumptious empanadas and an uncompromising commitment to quality and craftsmanship, stop by and it’s easy to see why Dulce de Leche is so popular among Jersey City locals.
The brainchild of Nobu pastry chef Jessica Isaacs who turned her creative eye from fashion to confection, Cocoa Bakery offers cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pastries and other desserts as well as custom designed wedding cakes.
There’s a bit of a story to Cocoa’s too. The cafe’s first storefront was hit by Hurricane Sandy and 6 feet of flooding, destroying the counters and furniture as well as the cafe’s La Marzocco espresso machine. Since then Cocoa’s has persevered but asks customers, “Was it all worth it? Come and taste for yourself.”
Affectionately known as Moteleone’s, this NYC cake shop is renowned for its cakes, pastries and deserts, but the real secret here is their rum cake. Locals come far and wide to try it and are always surprised by just how good it really is. Additionally, the cupcakes are said to be the best in the city.
