After 5 Decades This Beloved Family Run New Jersey Bakery Is Closed
Family-run bakeries are a staple in the Garden State, there's nothing sweeter than walking into a bake shop, seeing a familiar face, and getting delicious baked goods.
One of my favorite local bakeries is Fumosa Brothers in Ortley.
It's an old-school family-run bakery that has amazing donuts, scones, croissants, and bread.
502 Bakery in Brick is another really popular bakery near the Jersey Shore, I've had a few things from them and have never been disappointed.
However what is disappointing is when a family-owned and operated bakery that's been a staple in the community for five decades, closes up shop.
That's exactly what happened over the weekend to a popular bakery in Collingswood.
It's a bakery that was known for its delicious cakes like its Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake, Cannoli Cake, Red Velvet Cake, and Strawberry Short Cake.
The shop was also well known for its pound cakes, Napoleons, and Macaroons.
The bakery itself opened back in 1968 in Pennsauken New Jersey, and in 1990 relocated to its current location in Collingswood.
It's always a shame when a business like this ends up closing, and unfortunately, it's something we've been seeing a lot of around the Jersey Shore recently.
So What Beloved NJ Bakery Has Closed Its Doors?
It looks like that as of April 29th, this bakery has closed its doors, according to NJ.com.

No reason is given for the closure, but DiBartolo's will be missed.
