For over 100 years, Antique Bakery has been a major player in Hoboken bread baking, and the custom built coal-fired oven is now 1 of only 2 left in the mile square city. Antique Bakery welcomes walk-ins with it's retail counter in front of the store, and boasts a thriving wholesale business baking in the neighborhood of 1000 loaves a day.
Golden, crusty Italian loaves and long French baguettes known as ‘sticks', panelles, hero rolls, dinner rolls and specialty focaccia are displayed in-house and delivered daily to restaurants and delis across New Jersey and Manhattan. With its crusty exterior and chewy insides, everyone agrees that "Hoboken bread" is in a world all it's own.
What makes it so delicious is enthusiastically touted by locals that everything from the water, to the coal-fired oven, to the fact that every loaf of bread is hand-made, rather than stamped or assembly-line produced, makes Antique Bakery a community landmark.
