Best I've found either at shire or back up north. Rye bread is super. Hope the baker never retires. See a lot of new faces working at the store. Was up for sale.

Fantastic spot with AMAZING pastries. We are from north Jersey and picky about our pastries - Big Apple is better than many North Jersey bakeries. Been going here for over 7 years

Reminds me of the backery's when I was younger. Very nice selections and best seedless rye bread around. Goes to fast though. Apple strudel is another item to try.
