Delponte’s is THE bakery of Bradley Beach. Seriously. It’s the only one (not counting a Cupcake place). Thankfully though, it’s a really good one. You walk inside and it’s wall to wall baked goods. Over the course of a couple of weeks I tried many items. (Tasty baked goods are a vice of mine).
My favorites include the fresh pecan sticky buns, donuts, cheese danishs and my favorite, the mini vanilla custard. One unique offering are the entire shelf of gluten free cookies they offer. The best of these are the cannoli crème filled and the raspberry filled. The flavor is so good you wouldn’t guess they’re gluten free.
Most items are less than $2.50. The other nice thing is that they’re just 4 blocks from the beach so you can bring your snack with you to the boardwalk. Time to go to the gym now for 8 consecutive days.
