  1. We always enjoy Caputos pastries in Long Branch, NJ....

    1. Italian Peoples Bakery makes a pretty good one. (multiple locations)

      1. If you are willing to travel to North Jersey, Bergen County specifically, you'll find excellent Italian pastries, including Sfolgliatella & Lobster Tails and real Butter Cookies....not the kind in the white boxes, which are frozen.

        1. re: fourunder

          We love the Sfogliatelle at Rispoli. I think they use a somewhat sweeter filling than might be traditional, but I really don't know. I just know my family goes nuts for them. Get there at 6 am around the holidays.

        2. Del Ponte's in Bradley Beach is pretty good

          1. Sorrento Bakery on Eagle Rock Ave in East Hanover.
