Cammareri’s Doomed Brooklyn Bakery & Cafe

Cammareri’s “Famous” Bakery goes under in Hoboken, NJ

You know if a brand new business in town is offering 50% off on Living Social just three months after they opened, that something ain’t right.

Yep – Cammareri’s Famous Brooklyn Bakery & Cafe went out of business recently, and the store is for rent. They didn’t make it one full year.

What a shame – because the product was definitely not bad – and better than Cake Boss – which was essentially just a couple blocks away. Couldn’t they get some of that traffic?

But one thing that stood out most in my opinion – was the complete lack of passion for even being open and the wonderful opportunity to provide food & drink options for people that walked in the door. At least make us feel welcome, or happy that we chose to spend our money there for God’s sake!

What’s the next best thing for this spot? A gun store?

Cammareri Famous Brooklyn Bakery NOW OPEN in Hoboken!

4/22/2011:

Forget FIVE HOUR lines for Cake Boss – Cammareri’s Famous Brooklyn Bakery & Cafe is NOW OPEN!

Cammareri Bakery Update:

March 2011:

Spoke with the owners of Cammareri’s Bakery – and they told me they hope to be opening within four weeks.

And in addition to their famous “Brooklyn Bread,” they’ll also have the Monteleone pastries – as well as sandwiches which feature Lioni Mozzarella.

I also updated their contact information below.

Can’t wait till they open!

Cammareri’s Brooklyn Bakery & Cafe coming to Hoboken

Italian bakery competition heating up in the Mile Square…

Hoboken definitely has some great bakeries for bread (Dom’s) or pastries (Giorgio’s) – but is unfortunately most well known for what some say are mediocre products served up by TV-star “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro over at Carlo’s City Hall Bake Shop.

Well, a new player is coming to town: Cammareri’s Famous Brooklyn Bakery & Cafe.

Cammareri’s Brooklyn Bakery was made famous as being a location in the movie Moonstruck – and various Cammareri iterations are located in Brooklyn and Howell, NJ. They also partnered up with Montelone’s in Brooklyn at one point as well.

Nothing like a genuine Italian Bakery coming to Hoboken (instead of posers like the Old German Bakery – who seem to sell Costco quality baked goods.)

    I went here this morning for bread and coffee and I honestly think this place is doomed….. the bread is delicious, coffee is average…. but i have never heard of anyone going here and it didnt look like anyone had been there all morning…….

    I’ve gotten sandwiches from here several times now and they are great. You are right, the bread is awesome, and the sandwiches are huge and a great value. 1 sandwich feeds two people easily and most of them are between $10-$12. Sadly, i do agree with your assessment, there never seems to be anyone there and it seems like the place could be in jeopardy. It’s a shame.

    This place needed to stand out more with a huge sign, lights…something!

    I would often get off the train and forget it was even there. There is also no real foot traffic right past there as most people head up River upon exiting the train and do not pass it. Trust me though if the product was incredible people would walk the 30 feet to go there.

    I wonder what the total financial damage was. Those baking ovens can be expensive.

    Agree about the customer service experience. Friendly, happy workers go a long way towards making your visit a positive one, and in some cases you don’t even mind spending a bit more money if the time there is pleasant.
