Taste of Home Bakery should have been first. Dortonis is to commercial.

Alpine is a family-owned business for the last 30 years, and has truly delicious and original items. All other bakeries cannot even come close to Alpine’s creative, while still being yummy, baked goods!!

Front Street Bakery in RVC is by far the best bake shop in this entire area!

Our friends, the Hayden’s/ Cleva’s have been bringing us baked goods from Front Street Bakery for over 20 years. This is our choice for the best bakery in the world!!!! Everything is delicious in this family run Bakery!!! We love it and are always thrilled when our friends bring us over 6 boxes of baked goods–from the crumb cake to the 7 layer cake! The Ball family from Fairfield,CT.

The company I work for is located in Texas and I am asked to bring the Rasberry CrumCake and Mini Black and White cookies from FRONT STREET BAKERY in RVC. Its very tough on the plane not to open!

Front Street Bakery is by far the best on L.I.
You can’t beat the Black and Whites and Crumb Cake.
The service is excellent! You can’t get that service in the grocery store!!!!


ELLEN August 17, 2010 at 1:16 pm

Far and above you can’t beat A Taste of Home Bakery and Sweet Shoppe in Bellmore for bakery, candies or breakfast, lunch or dinner.. . and the best coffee and egg sandwiches!


Karen Carter August 18, 2010 at 9:28 pm

The BEST crumb cake and black and white cookies are at Front Street Bakery in Rockville Centre along with many other delicious treats! Definitely worth the trip.


Betty Scott August 25, 2010 at 7:26 pm

I have been eating cake and cookies from Front Street Bakery for over 65 years and still think that they are the best. I even send their crumb cake to my brother in GA.


JEANETTE GALLO August 26, 2010 at 8:29 pm

Front Street Bakery has been my favorite for 40 years, the make the best specialty cakes and Jeff makes the best decorated cakes ever. Our family favorites are the crumb cakes that get sent all over the country at the holidays. My family has scattered and that is the only gift they want. Also try their gift baskets with the wonderful cookies, coffee cakes etc. Front Street Bakery can’t be
beat. Try it in the morning before boarding the RVC train to Manhattan. Get a coffee and the only baker that still makes the best buns and donuts around.


JEANETTE GALLO August 26, 2010 at 8:34 pm

Front Street Bakery in Rockville Centre makes the best birthday, wedding, and specialty cakes around and the crumb cakes are a fovorite for all my out of state family at holiday time. Their
French crullers are the best and so are all the buns. its the only place to go.

Front Street Bakery in RVC is by far the best!
In July, Front Street made my daughter’s wedding cake and so many of our guests said “Where did you get the wedding cake, it was great!”
And the crumb cake, one of my family’s favorite!

I been going to Front Street Bakery for many years…I now live in L.B. and still
take the ride for Front Street’s Outrageous Birthday, Communion and Anniversary cakes.
They are all decorated to the 9′s…My Mom and I will always come for the amazing
Almond Paste Danish, DELICIOUS!!

In order to make an outrageous claim about which bakery is the best, you will need to have tried all the bakeries on Long Island. Therefore, I will add my expert opinion and say Tilda’s in Rocky Point and Briermere Farms in Riverhead are the best. Thank you


sara October 1, 2011 at 3:56 pm

I am the expert, Ben, and have tried ALL the bakeries on L.I.. MY expert opinion is that Front Street Bakery in Rockville Centre is THE BEST BAKERY on Long Island.
