Sunmerry Bakery: Bringing Some Sweetness to Washington Street in Hoboken

Written by:

If there’s one thing we really love here in the Mile Square, it’s some seriously delicious sweet treats. We’ve got cannolis, chocolates galore, Nutella boats {and lattes and capuccinos}, cookies, ice cream and gelato, and so much more. Of course, locals would never turn down the opportunity to discover something new and delicious. Enter Sunmerry Bakery — bringing Taiwanese and Japanese treats to the Mile Square. When customers walk into the door of Sunmerry Bakery and Cafe, they’ll be greeted with the smell of deliciousness, a friendly staff, and rows upon rows of yummy looking sweets that all look like they just popped out of the oven {because they probably did}.

This new spot is located on 519 Washington Street {where the old Aether Cafe used to reside}, and the windows are lined with freshly-baked pastries, danishes, and traditional Taiwanese goodies. Keep reading to check out what Sunmerry has to offer.

The Backstory 

The Taiwanese-Japanese inspired cafe was started in 1986 and was inspired by traditional Japanese baking techniques and Taiwanese flavors. It’s the first of its kind to hit Hoboken’s streets, but Sunmerry is no stranger to bringing the dessert-style goodness to Jersey. Their first U.S. location popped up 26 years ago in Fort Lee and now has four other locations across the Garden State.

The Coffee + Treats

Sunmerry offers customers a variety of coffee drinks, all brewed from Segefredo, like regular hot and cold brew, cappuccinos, lattes, Americanos, matcha lattes, and even salted cheese coffee {don’t knock it until you try it}, which is a traditional Asian drink served with salted cream cheese, heavy cream, cheese powder, sugar, and a sprinkle of sea salt. They also offer a few different milk teas with flavors like chocolate, taro, coffee, and the ever classic, bubble milk tea.

All the treats are baked on-site, so they can be served as fresh as possible each day. The menu includes traditional Japanese treats such as taro bolo buns, taro mochi, custard roll cake, and custard tart {also known as egg tart}, as well as danishes, croissants, and brioches. Check out the full menu here. We suggest enjoying a Nutella bun all to yourself {or sharing if you really want to}.

Catering + Future Plans

If you’re looking to bring some sweet treats to an event, Sunmerry can help with that. As long as orders are placed a few days in advance, event-planners can expect some of the bakery’s top-notch desserts at their next party.

Currently, Sunmerry doesn’t offer any seating or WiFi, but they may be changing that in the near future. They’re also looking to offer outdoor seating once the weather gets nicer.

For now, you can pop into Sunmerry Bakery and Cafe from 8:30AM-8:30PM, seven days a week and make sure to follow them on Instagram @sunmerry.hoboken.
