Satisfy That Sweet Tooth on Thanksgiving Day With These Local Pie ShopsBY Editor, November 14, 2018
Thanksgiving is coming up on Thursday, Nov. 22, and we’re all ready for the big feast full of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. However, for those with a sweet tooth, there’s an even better part of Thanksgiving – dessert!
Thanksgiving desserts typically are full of pies in every variety, including apple, pumpkin and blueberry. Luckily for us here in Jersey City, our area is full of tasty pie shops, which will certainly come in handy after you’ve already spent hours cooking Thanksgiving dinner!
If you want to keep your guests happy after the main meal is over on Thanksgiving Day, then make sure you stop by these bakeries well before the big day. Hurry though, they’re taking orders as soon as possible!
Cocoa Bakery, located at 275 Grand St, Jersey City which is a 15-minute walk from your Liberty Towers apartment, is a quaint storefront with breakfast pastries, classic baked goods and espresso drinks, plus a snug patio.
Cocoa makes its own pie crusts by hand, and their pies are baked fresh. Sweet potato, pumpkin, pecan and key lime are just a few of their options. Most are made to order, and of course they will have whole pies available for purchase during Thanksgiving!
Monteleone’s, located at 741 Newark Ave, Jersey City which is about 10 minutes from your Liberty Towers apartment, is a traditional bakery turning out Italian pastries from cakes and cannolis to pies and eclairs.
This old-school bakery has been a favorite for generations and for good reason – they offer it all, including, of course, scrumptious pies that will keep everyone at your Thanksgiving table happy. Plus, you know you’ll be treated like family from the moment you walk in the door!
