Authentic Italian Bakery with Delicious Goods


Calandra’s Bakery has been serving its dedicated Tri-State customers since its initial opening in 1962. Over 50 years later, it remains a must-have spot for freshly baked breads, pastries and authentic Italian treats.

An Italian Bakery with Genuine Recipes

In a state like NJ, Italian cuisine is one of the most prominent—but not every Italian bakery serves up recipes passed down from multiple generations, which is certainly the case at Calandra’s Bakery. Customers can always expect nothing but the freshest baked goods, created with tried and true methods. The products that Calandra’s Bakery offers include, but are not limited to, bread, pastries, cakes, cookies, gelato and breakfast items. Executive Pastry Chef David and the rest of the highly trained staff at Calandra’s Bakery create each dish with a strict attention to detail, so that they’re both delicious and aesthetically pleasing.

Calandra’s: A One-of-a-Kind NJ Bakery

Family owned and operated, the NJ bakery owes its success to the three basic principles it was built upon: A strong work ethic, an emphasis on family and a belief that the customer comes first. Although there’s a lot that makes Calandra’s Bakery so unique—like the scratch-baked products made with wholesome ingredients—this exact philosophy is one of the main reasons why so many customers always choose to return time and time again. When you visit Calandra’s Bakery, you’ll be made to feel valued and appreciated, whether you’re a brand new customer or a loyal fan.

Custom Cake and Cookie Orders 

For any special events that a customer has coming up, the NJ bakery offers specialty cakes and custom cookie orders for every occasion. The specialty cakes created at Calandra’s Bakery are baked to perfection and decorated flawlessly; customers are encouraged to schedule a complimentary cake tasting to discuss specific details, your vision and possible designs. Cookies are always freshly handmade on a daily basis at Calandra’s Bakery, and range in size from small to jumbo. Customers can choose to fill a tray with cookies specifically for an event or party of any kind or have them individually wrapped as party favors, making the occasion that much more special.
