This afternoon we took the hour and 15 minute car trip to Carlo's bakery. It was mobbed with a line of tourists a few blocks long waiting to go in. We pre-ordered our cakes and cookies and didn't have to wait in line. For those who didn't pre-order, they had to wait upwards of 2 hours to get in.

I'm curious to know if the line is always this long or are there certains days of the week/times of year it's less crowded.

It probably isn't like that during the work week, weekends people have more time to "sightsee".

How were the cakes? I'm curious if they are worth what they charge? If you don't mind sharing, was it high quality and approx how much was the order you got? I'll never go to NJ so I would love to hear your experience.

My Mom and her boss used to go there all the time when she managed a condo complex a few blocks away (this was long before TLC discovered him) and she said the pastries were always great. I don't know if she ever had cake but if they can do the fancy pastries that good then I'm pretty sure their cakes are good.
