Cammareri Brooklyn Bakery and Cafe Closes Hoboken Location

According to Hoboken Patch which covers basic news ok and government news with a noted political slant but without the low carb diet hucksterism and full on “haterade” of another infamous website run by a person of ill repute, Cammareri Brooklyn Bakery has closed its doors in Hoboken after giving it a try less than a year. Bottom line is if a place can’t make it in a high traffic area like his one, the customers must have been looking for something else. I’m sure the rent is high but maybe they could sell only so many Cannolis and that just didn’t make the rent and payroll plus food and utility costs.

It is absolutely insane to be basing their failure on parking for Pete’s sake. The low carb huckster of another website entity renowned for smearing people not an ally of his political paymaster  is really off base with this one. But then again when he actually on target? That location is next a major transit hub and you are not going to find parking readily available there unless you are very lucky.

TheBoken.com is as always sorry to see businesses fail but Hoboken is a unique city and some business models don’t always work here that work elsewhere. Back to the drawing board. Share you thoughts as to what should be next in the comments below….

Below is the original post of its opening…

Original Post April 26th, 2011: Holy Cannoli Batman! Another quality Bakery has opened up in Hoboken. Cammareri and Sons Bakery of Brooklyn has now expanded their territory to a convenient location in the Mile Square City. Located at 22 Hudson Place the location has appeal for those who commute and need a Cannoli fix immediately from their ascension from the PATH tunnel. TheBoken’s editor (me) tried the small Cannoli which is priced at $1.50 and thought it was very good and worth coming back for. I am normally not a dessert guy and diabetic so this can only be something I have every once in a while.

I was able to chat with a manager/part owner and he said that they are going through a soft opening first before doing a grand opening which is typical. They are still awaiting approval from the Hoboken Historical Commission which is required in order to put their signs up. The bakery doesn’t just do Cannolis they have other desserts as well as fresh Italian bread. The Manager gave me a complimentary loaf to try and I have to say it is very good bread and fresh! Unlike Carlo’s Bakery which has frustrated locals with their long lines, the Cammareri Bakery due to their under the radar opening has yet to have lines but that could change if word gets out about the quality of their baked goods and what appears to be reasonable pricing.

The Boken wishes both Carlo’s Bakery and Cammareri Brooklyn Bakery the best. Perhaps there is enough business to go around for everyone to have their cake and eat it too.
