Carlo's Bake Shop Announces Grand Opening Date

Reality TV star will be saying hello to Ridgewood in February.

'Cake boss' Buddy Valastro will finally be bringing the cakes and cameras to Ridgewood. The Hoboken-based television star will be opening his second Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 12 Wilsey Square.

Valastro announced this past fall that he had big plans to open his second bakery to serve customers tired of two-hour lines. 

"We expect to do very well in Ridgewood," Valastro previously told Patch. "We have some really cool offerings at this new location, like a custom cake bar and a party room for kids to have birthday parties. We're excited about the opportunities."

Oh, and the cameras are expected to roll on Feb. 9.

Best wishes for great success. My special wish is that some healthy options are offered. Perhaps something vegan, just for fun?

Vegan you must be kidding this is a bakery where you go to indulge yourself.

Good luck to Carlo's but be sure to try Heidi's German bakery on E. Ridgewood Ave. Just brought my daughter there for some apple pie - awesomely delicious!!

I think they have gone downhill since opening. Less choices now and the original German hot chocolate is now something along the lines of Swiss Miss.

I'm trying to wrap my head around having the words "vegan" and "fun" so close to each other in a sentence.

WELCOME TO RIDGEWOOD BUDDY..Carlo's Bakery, an over-developed downtown, bitter political infighting, overpaid union employees, higher taxes and declining services. Thought you left Hoboken....no, my friend, this is the "NEW Ridgewood"...fugghetabouddit!
