Best Dessert Places In New Jersey

Best Dessert Places In New Jersey

Just a few places to fulfill every sweet lover's dreams


I'm a foodie. If you're my friend on Snapchat, then God bless you because you know this is true because you've probably seen the numerous perfectly shot, filtered pictures of my food. I'm not ashamed of it. What can I say? I love good food. So I've spent the past few years since I got my license trying out different places and proving that us Jersians do know good food when we see it. So here you go, just a few of my favorite places. Though, warning that this list is comprised solely of chocolate... I may or may not have a major sweet tooth and be craving chocolate while writing this at midnight, whoops.

Glaze Donuts

Where: 358 River Road, New Milford

What To Order: The Italian Rainbow Doughnut

Sogno Coffeehouse and Creperie

Where: 425 Broadway, Westwood

What To Order: The Bergen Crepe (Or any crepe for that matter.)

Confections of a Rock$tar

Where: 550 Cookman Ave #104, Asbury Park

What To Order: Don't Be Cruel cupcake (banana cake with peanut butter frosting topped with honey-dipped bacon); they also have dog friendly cupcakes.

Shriver's Salt Water Taffy and Fudge

Where: 852 Boardwalk, Ocean City

What To Order: Taffy, obviously.

Carlo's Bakery

Where: 95 Washington Street, Hoboken

What To Order: Lobster claws; they also have really good cannolis though what type of Italian would you be if you screwed those up?

Brother Bruno's Pizza, Deli & Bagels

Where: 200 Hamburg Turnpike, Wayne

What To Order: Any desert pizza (you can even customize it too).

Anthony's Cheesecake

Where: 71 Washington Street, Bloomfield

Mr. Tod's Pie Factory

Where: 15 West Hudson Ave, Englewood (He might also have locations elsewhere throughout the state)

What To Order: Known for his sweet potato pie and people on Yelp love his coconut custard pie. You might also recognize this business from ABC's "Shark Tank."

Holsten's Brookdale Confectionery

Where: 1063 Broad Street, Bloomfield

What To Order: Holsten's Special (sundae of mint, black raspberry, butter pecan and chocolate ice cream covered in hot fudge, wet walnuts, whipped cream and a cherry).

If you're craving ice cream, then also try Rita's Italian Ice. While it may not be original to New Jersey, it's pretty amazing and so worth the drive.

Bread and Cheese Cupboard

Where: 246 96th Street, Stone Harbor

What To Order: Sticky Buns.

If you're a vegan, then check out Sweet Avenue Bake Shop in Rutherford.

I know I can't be the only one with this major sweet tooth and I know there are a ton of places I've missed. I don't think I'll be leaving Jersey any time soon so there's plenty more sweets coming my way.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
