Old German Bakery: Update
Old German Bakery opens in Hoboken, NJ
Yep – the Old German Bakery everyone was waiting for finally opened up this past weekend.
I tasted some kind of custard pastry concoction – as well as a mini peach/blueberry crumb-ish cake with average feelings about them (i.e., nothing outstanding, just average). From what I heard from several residents also who tried the place out – they thought the opening weekend was a bit hectic there. From long lines, to a person behind the counter who was coughing up a lung, and cash register issues – made the initial visit a bit less than pleasant.
Either way – see photos below – and will check back with the new bakery once the hype has settled down and they can work whatever kinks they discover out.
Did you try the new Old German Bakery out yet?

Old German Bakery hopes to open in December
Spoke with the owner of the upcoming Old German Bakery, which is currently taking shape at 332 Washington Street yesterday.
He hopes to open his first American version of his bakery sometime this month (I won’t quote specific time frames, as you know they’re very “loose.”) He said that his company owns bakeries in several other countries!
What should you expect? 109 different German-style bakery offerings, that’s what! 25 various breads, dozens of different cakes and a pizza-like meat-bread that “won’t be over-stuffed the way Americans are used to,” the owner said. That means that the emphasis will be on taste and texture, rather than exclusively expanding your waist line.
Sounds fun, can’t wait!
German venues gaining strength in Hoboken
Hoboken used to have a strong German presence back in the day – but for the most part, Helmers (11th and Washington) was all we had to choose from in today’s times.
But that is changing – we have the Pilsener Haus & Biergarten on the way (even though it’s owned by Czechs) which will have that ethnic “flair,” and now the upcoming Old German Bakery taking the place of the odd (and dumpy) Joon Lee Gifts at 332 Washington Street.
