  • 10 Hoboken and Jersey City Dessert Spots to Satisfy an {Easter} Sweet Tooth

    Easter is a wonderful holiday for adults and kids…definitely kids. Those little peanuts get to enjoy Easter egg hunts and baskets filled with gifts, money, and candy {arguably the best part}. But adults? Pffft..we’re lucky if we get a slice of carrot cake. However, being that we ARE adults…we’re able to satisfy our holiday sweet tooth by buying exactly what we want. And the best part? You don’t have to travel far to do so. We’ve rounded up a few {10!} of our favorite local sweet shops below for those Easter candy cravings. Enjoy — and don’t forget to bring some treats to any brunch/dinner you attend! 

    1. Choc O’ Pain — 157 1st Street // 530 Jersey Ave // 942 Summit Ave

    Repeat after us…C A N N O L I S !! Giorgio’s is the place to go for those tasty little gems. They also have a variety of assorted Italian cookies and other scrumptious treats. But, it’s ca$h only, so make sure you bring some paper!

    Open until 5:00PM Saturday & 12:00PM Sunday

    4. Sweet — 343 Garden Street



    Such a darling little shop that smells like heaven. May we suggest the mini carrot cake cupcakes? If carrot cake isn’t your thing, don’t worry..they have PLENTY of yummy options.

    Open until 7:00PM Saturday & 6:00PM Sunday

    5. Schnackenberg’s Luncheonette — 1110 Washington Street


    This place has it allll. Breakfast, pastries, chocolates, and don’t even get us started on their milkshakes! For Easter, they’re offering chocolate bunnies and orange jellybeans in bags shaped with carrots

    6. bwe kafe’ — 1002 Washington Street // 140 River Drive South, Jersey City

    7. Lepore’s Homemade Chocolates — 105 4th Street 



    The name says it all. If chocolate is what your heart desires, then this is where you need to go.

    8. Jaret’s Stuffed Cupcakes — 1401 Hudson Street


    One of our favorite new uptown spots, Jaret’s hails from Nutley, NJ, and its cupcakes are nothing to scoff at — especially when they come in cake form {above!}. Each confection is stuffed with a flavored filling — ranging from Nutella to vanilla to lemon, and they are something to seriously write home about.

    9. Carlo’s Bakery — 95 Washington Street



    While it may have become a large baking company, Carlo’s roots reside in Hoboken — and we are LUCKY for that. Their cannolis are delicious, and we’ve never met a fondant cake we didn’t like.

    10. Hudson Cakery — 1816 Willow Ave, Weehawken


    One of our personal faves, Jenn of the Hudson Cakery never disappoints. This year, she’s offering mini lamb cakes {as well as her esteemed cake pops and other fun stuff}. If you’re a carrot cake lover, her carrot cake is out-of-this-world. But, don’t take our word for it 😉

    Where are you getting your sweets for this holiday weekend? Have a happy one! xo
