Life in Fort Lee is great: you’ve got an amazing view of the Hudson and Manhattan, the George Washington Bridge is just a brief ride away, and best of all you don’t have to deal with NYC-level rent and density. But what about that all-important luxury, great baked goods?  Well, you could always head  across the river and scour lower Manhattan…or you could save yourself a lot of traffic and grief and go straight to Sweet, on 343 Garden Street in Hoboken! Now you no longer have to worry about finding the best in cupcakes and treats – Sweet has what you need and it’s all on this side of the river.

If cupcakes are your thing, Sweet should be your first stop. No matter what your preference, we offer you the best in pastry goodness: vanilla and chocolate cakes and frosting, red velvet, marble with buttercream icing, banana, mocha, even chilled ganache with marshmallow meringue topping. All of our delicious cupcake creations are available in mini-or regular sizes, so don’t be afraid to give them a sampling or bring home a warm baker’s dozen once you’ve found your favorite flavor.

It’s not just cupcakes that we do, though. You don’t have to take our word for it; just try our chocolate peanut butter bar. That’s chocolate layered over peanut butter fudge on top of yummy rice crispy. Peanut butter not your thing? Maybe our cheesecake bar on a wonderfully textured graham cracker crust will do the trick. Or maybe our triple fudgy chocolate brownie. If not that, there’s always the crème brûlée: rich custard with a caramelized sugar shell. In fact, why not give all our desserts a sampling? They start as low as $1.25 and never goes above five bucks. With prices like that, the real problem is making sure you’ve got room for one more.

But what would a bakery be without cakes for special occasions? Before your next family gathering, office party, or anything you feel like celebrating, swing by Sweet. Our 6-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch cake sizes can feed anywhere from six to twenty hungry tummies, and we’ve got the usual array of mouth-watering flavors: chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, carrot cake, pumpkin, and banana. For just $3 we’ll do a custom icing inscription too; perfect for graduation or birthday parties. We’ll package it up and you can take it home, or to Constitution Park, or just open it on the ride home if you can’t wait that long. We understand.

But the real icing on Sweet’s cake is our location! We’re just a short trip down from Ft. Lee, and whether you’re coming by car or just found yourself in the neighborhood, Sweet is easy to find at the corner of 4th and Garden Streets in Hoboken. The next time you have that special sweet-tooth urge for the best baked goods, save yourself a ride across the GW and make a beeline for Sweet. We’ll be waiting.
