• A Definitive List of Hoboken Desserts You Must Eat ASAP

    Written by:

    There’s something to be said for desserts in Hoboken — they’re like Italian restaurants — available on every block. But when it comes to the cream of the crop {the creme de la creme if you will} in dessertland, there are a few that surpass the rest, whether it be due to their classic been-around-for-years quality or just amazing taste in general. Here, we’re sharing our favorite desserts that you MUST EAT BEFORE YOU DIE {or at least before you leave Hoboken — or before it’s Monday, whatever you want to use as your excuse}. Enjoy!

     

    Icebox Cake at Augustino’s

    If you’re lucky enough to get a reservation at this coveted Italian restaurant, make SURE you get the icebox cake: chocolate mousse cake with whipped cream. SO GOOD. While you’re there, the chicken parm + everything else on the menu is a must as well.

    The Snowboken at Dino and Harry’s

    Before there was Instagram #Snowboken during blizzards, there was this Dino and Harry’s delicacy. If you haven’t been to this 14th Street gem, you’re not a true Hobokenite {#sorrynotsorry}. The end of the evening {after you’re stuffed with a 48 oz. sirloin and pinot and are listening to the piano player tinkle the ivories} is the best part: vanilla ice cream, chocolate fudge, marshmallow, crumbled Oreo cookies and shaved coconut.  

    Cannoli Pie at Blue Eyes Cafe

    This one is pretty self-explanatory, but it’s pretty much cannoli filling on top of doughy pizza crust and it will make your head spin with sugary happiness. If you haven’t been to Blue Eyes, you’re missing out. All about a recent trip there here.

    Cannolis from Giorgio’s Bakery

    The best in the biz — Giorgio’s Pasticceria. Their chocolate covered cannoli has bits of orange zest in it which make it tangy and sweet all at the same time. While you’re there, grab some Italian cookies and biscotti — you won’t regret it.

    Warm Doughnuts at Anthony David’s

    This BYO spot on 10th and Bloomfield has numerous must-have delicacies, but the absolute standout dessert is definitely the warm doughnuts. Choose from nutella-drizzled or bourbon-glazed {or go halfsies} with a choice of both on the plate. You really can’t go wrong.

    Baonanas at Baking Mama

    The breakout dessert star of 2016, Baonanas is offers vegan, gluten-free pudding made out of bananas {and mixed with a host of other delicious things — some being dairy + gluten, it just depends on the one you buy!}. Even though this deliciousness was technically started in Jersey City, it can be found at Baking Mama in Hoboken on the corner of Newark and Hudson Street. You’re welcome.

    Bread Pudding at Antique Bar and Bakery

    The seasonal menu at this downtown hot spot varies on the reg, but when it comes to a staple dessert, the Antique Bread Pudding is something you’ll be thinking about for days {weeks, possibly years} to come. It’s perfectly crusted on the outside with a softer interior, and the caramel drizzle on top is {literally} the icing on the cake. Another not-to-be-missed item on the menu is the VEGAN {yes, vegan} coconut milkshake which is pretty much #GOALZ when it comes to non-dairy sweets. You won’t even miss the milk!
