Been an institution in Hackensack for years. Expect to wait, yes the apple crumb cake is not the same as years ago but still better than any other place around. They are a machine as to run a place. Get people in and out quickly. Enjoy the sweets.

The crumb cake is good but, not as good as it once was! Still a favorite to bring to North Carolina or Floridia when we go to visit...

B & W Bakery at 614 Main St. Hackensack, NJ. The place to go for the best baked sweets and also bread foods. Don't be alarmed if you see a line out the door during the holiday's. Their service is excellent!

I love this bakery for their breakfast buns and coffee cakes. I like to go Sunday morning when we eat a big breakfast. This establishment has been around forever. Why? They're delicious!

This bakery I have been going to since I was a little girl with my father and even though the owners have changed over the years and now I am in my adult years, the bakery items and other delicacies are still great!

The crumb cake (their signature) was very good but not Great in my opinion. We also tried a layer cake, rye bread, and donuts. There was a line in the middle of the day! The crumb cake was stale the next day, is this good or bad? They have new owners and the quality is not where it once was.... More

A timeless place that reminds one of the good old days back 50+ years with exceptional service, excellence in bakery goods and a respectable friendly place...The crumb cake is perhaps the best most folks may have ever had... Recipe dates back 50+ years...

B & W Bakery is well known for their coffee cake but their selection is amazing! From the delicious french pastries, cream horns and pecan rings to name a few, it's hard to make a choice! It's strictly a take out, cash bakery and parking is limited so be prepared. They are usually very busy so take a number as... More
