What Italian Bakery Is Being Called One Of The Best In New Jersey?

Located in the heart of Bradley Beach, this bakery has become known for its huge variety of homemade, fresh-baked Italian cookies.

It also features a huge selection of biscotti if you're looking for something sweet to go with your morning cup of coffee.

Or maybe you need a cake for a special occasion, or just because, then you'll want to check out their cannoli cake because wow, it looks amazing.

Since opening in 1999, this bakery has become a must-visit for both locals and tourists alike

Hours vary throughout the week but they are open most days until either 8 or 9 PM, and are located at 600 Main Street in Bradley Beach.
