Cupcakes for All!





  1. A small cake baked in a cup-shaped container.
  2. Dessert that is guaranteed to bring a smile to your child’s face.
  3. One of life’s simplest pleasures.

Are we the only ones who are excited about the cupcake’s return to popularity? Here in Bergen we are blessed with some of the most delicious “cupcakeries” (bakeries specializing in cupcakes) and for that we consider ourselves VERY lucky.

So in honor of this favorite treat, we bring you Bergen’s best cupcakes.

Crumbs Bakeshop
Big news in Ridgewood: Yes, the famous Crumbs Bakery has finally arrived.  Pinch us we’re so excited!  This vintage inspired bakeshop serves muffins, cookies, brownies, and of course over 50 varieties of cupcakes baked fresh daily; their signature size cupcake is actually 6oz bigger than standard size.  We really just dream of leisurely dining on one of their delectable treats and fresh brewed coffee with our morning paper in hand.

CRUMBS Ridgewood, 123 East Ridgewood Avenue, Ridgewood
Hours: Mon - Thu, 8am - 9pm; Fri, Sat, 8am - 10pm; Sun, 8am - 8pm

La Dolce Divas
You know the lines that form outside Magnolia Bakery in the West Village?  Well, they have nothing on our very own La Dolce Divas.  The menu is similar, with three different sizes of cupcakes and many delicious frosting choices. They also capture our hearts (and appetites) with some old favorites like whoopie pies and banana pudding.  Their designer cakes made to order are also really delicious too.

La Dolce Divas, 44 East Palisade Avenue, Englewood
Hours: Mon-Wed, 11am-9pm, Thurs-Sat, 10am-10pm, Sun, 10am-9pm

Sweet as a Cupcake
Looking for specialty cupcakes with a personal touch?  Sweet as a Cupcake will work with you on your order of cupcakes to make them tie in with any theme, and they don’t give up anything in taste.  They will also deliver within a 5 mile radius of Cresskill.


Sweet Avenue Bakeshop
Think vegan cupcakes can’t taste good?  Head over to Sweet Avenue to prove yourself wrong.  Probably one of the only gourmet, vegan bakeshops around and its here in Rutherford!  The self-proclaimed “cupcakery” has really cool design concepts; cupcakes featuring pictures of your favorite twilight characters and cupcakes to celebrate the last season of “Lost”.  Kid allergic to gluten? No problem, they make some varieties gluten-free.  They can also custom print any cupcake.

Sweet Avenue Bakeshop, 153 Park Avenue, Rutherford
Hours: Tues-Sat 11am-7pm, Sun 11am-5pm
