If you’ve got a serious sweet tooth, then Halloween is probably on the top of your favorite holiday list. While eating bags of candy from the drug store usually does the trick, we can’t forget that Hoboken is home to so many local bakeries and sweet shops who go all out for the holidays. Halloween is no exception, so we’ve rounded up a list of our favorite spots to grab a Halloween-themed treat (or custom order) in Hoboken, Jersey City, and Weehawken.

Baking Mama | 88 Hudson Street, Hoboken

Baking Mama’s very own Tina Rivera (owner and you guessed it, mama [of a local Stevens student!]), bakes up some of the yummiest sweets in town. Macaroons, chocolate chip cookies, cape pops — you name it, Tina bakes it. So, if you’ve finished your bag of candy from CVS and need something different to satisfy that sweet tooth, head downtown and pick yourself up a treat (or two, or three).

Carlo’s Bakery | 95 Washington Street, Hoboken

Choc-O-Pain French Bakery and Cafe | Multiple Locations

This beloved bakery has everything from croissants to quiches and is best known for its warm, flaky French pastries, bread, delicious lunch items, and quality coffee. This old-fashioned “corner store” charm to the café also boasts hard-to-find French specialty items and cooking ingredients such as French candies and artisanal chocolate, spices, mustards, salts, French sugar cubes, local Honey, and Alain Milliat jams. Arguably the best thing at this bakery is the themed bread, and this Halloween, they will be serving up delicious bread with classic witches on brooms and more.

Cocoa Bakery | 475 Central Ave, Jersey City

Although Hudson Cakery isn’t technically in Hoboken, it is close enough (right over the Weehawken bridge), and it would be a crime not to include this bakery on our list. The sweets here (from custom cakes to cookies to cake pops to macaroons and beyond) are just too good, and owner Jennifer Bruce comes to impress during Halloween time.
