Written by:

Easter is officially upon us, and we can’t help but get excited about all the treats that come with it. We might be too old {sigh} for an Easter egg hunt, but there are plenty of local shops whipping up Easter sweets so you can have alllll the nostalgia and sweets. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite local sweets + dessert shops in Hoboken, Jersey City, and beyond to satisfy that Easter sweet tooth. These brick-and-mortar dessert shops have specific Easter items, including but not limited to pastels, Cadbury eggs, sprinkles, and more.

Lee Sims has been at the same location since the 1940s when Valerie’s grandfather, George Sousane, bought the shop with a partner at the time when it was a soda fountain and candy store.
