We wanted to make the most of our trip so we hopped the PATH train over to Hoboken to visit “The Cake Boss”!

Here’s a few tips if you’re thinking of planning a visit of your own:

Weekdays and Mornings

For the shortest waits weekdays and mornings are your safest bet! We stopped by the store on a Saturday afternoon and the line moved fast. There is usually at least one family member in the store and sometimes you’ll get lucky and see everyone!

Bonus: They just finished remodeling the Hoboken store last week – it’s gorgeous!

What Should You Order?!?

As long as you’re there you might as well order the most famous desserts:

  • Lobster Tail
  • Crumb Cake
  • Cannoli
  • Rugelach
  • Strawberry Cheesecake

Hit Brunch

Carlo’s hosts an amazing brunch at the warehouse on Saturday’s. You can book by calling 201.448.8394. It costs $40 per person. There’s TONS of food (and of course plenty of cannoli for dessert!)

Our favorites:

  • The waffle and pancake bar! (the girls said that they were the best waffles of their lives)
  • Omelettes
  • Stir Fry
  • Salmon
  • Cannoli for dessert!

Your odds are good at seeing someone from the show at the warehouse. Look who we ran into!

Take a Cake Decorating Class

Book in advance, they fill up fast! We were so jealous of the students in the cake decorating class. How bad do I want to roll out fondant and wrap it around a cake? Pretty bad. We’ll do this next time for sure!
