Parth Rana

A huge thank you to Chef David and the Caladra's Team for giving us a beautiful cake that went above our expectations. Many guests, including myself, were astonished at the beauty and elegance of this masterpiece. Additionally, a very warm thank you to Aisha for her endless help in planning this cake showing endless support through the process. You are truly a great person to work with! All guests enjoyed the cake as it was said to be "very moist" and "delicious".

Aerian Hall

Horrible service! The worker serving the lunch special walked away to intentionally not serve me. Then proceeded to ask if another customer needed help that walked in after me. As I turned to leave he then returned to the counter to continue preparing the specials! Very sad and never experienced such blatant disrespect.

Sonora Amanda

Expensive. But superb! You get what you pay for. And we always leave VERY happy! ☺ I travel the distance for all birthday cakes because there's nothing like it anywhere around. Top of the line bakery. The staff is extremely professional and courteous. 5 stars.

Everything here is fresh and delicious! If I worked here I would be the size of a house! I wouldn't be able to help myself from trying everything! The assortment is huge! The hours open are long and makes it convenient for last minute pastry purchases. The presentation and pastries are also beautiful. I'm glad there are many locations as well.

Calandra's has the best cakes, pastries, bread and the list goes on. Their staff are the best. So far I've been to the Newark & Caldwell locations. They do not disappoint. The Caldwell location is pretty big. My husband and I need to go back soon to check out their restaurant.

George atalay

Very good

Josh Kintzer

Can't go wrong with any of the Caladras around here

Stopped in for some cheesecake for my friend and I. Cheesecake they had on their menu wasn't there so I asked. It was just cheesecake with pecans. No one seemed to have heard if it. When I showed their website picture the clerk looked like she had never even seen one in the store before. That was all fine. It was when I called back and asked what the ingredients were that I lost interest in this place. My friend is on a reflux diet and I was just wondering what the ingredients were so I asked. I understand there are trademarks in one's recipe but in this day and age everyone has their ingredients posted for nutrition reasons alone. When I finally got in toucn with I believe who the baker was, he responded with a nasty tone, "each person has their own recipe. I should know that". Then immediately hung up. The cheesecake itself wasn't even good. It tasted no different then cream cheese alone. As my friend said, "a box of cheesecake from the dollar store would have been better". We both agreed it was the worst cheesecake ever.

Dimitrios Angelis

Awesome Italian bakery experience!

Peter Paslis

Nicole in Glen Ridge is my favorite bread Bakery specially for semolina but Calandra's is a close second , there bread is always fresh and they have a lot of Italian Delicacies.

Victoria Leong

Hakima Webb

The bakery goods are Delicious, however the service in the morning is horrific.

Hugh Lindsay

The best bakery around it has all you need including pizza. Can't go wrong here. The cakes are out of this world


We went there for a wedding cake tasting . Aisha Maliki treated us like family. Aisha is very knowledgeable when it comes to cakes and making sure you get exactly what you want for your wedding cake ! Do not hesitate or even think twice about going somewhere else to not waste your time and just come see Aisha. Gino & Eneri

One of its kind !

Migdalia Gonzalez

Loved it, loved the cup cakes, it was nice enjoyed a cup of coffee at the tables.

maggie alfaro

Good service, but $2 for a tiny regular coffee seemed a little expensive. The place is beautiful and was decorated spectacularly for Christmas.

April Lane

Customer service was meh, pastries were good and their pizza was delicious.


Goodness gracious! Incredible deserts, amazing bread, superior service and exquisite ambience! Did I mention they only use four ingredients, never any chemicals or preservatives? A very modest and unassuming Mr. Calandra happened to stop by, he shook my hand and thanked me for my business. That's the kind of old school business, that's not taught at Harvard! Thank you, sir. It was an honour to meet you!

Karen Iannuzzi

Everything is delicious!

Traci Marquis

It's okay

Francine Krawiec

I’m from Florida but born in Jersey! Miss the great bread and pastries. I’ve been to Calandras 5 times since I got here. The best !!!!

Rick Liuzzi

Everything here is delicious!!

Philip Kent

The food for Mothers Day this past Sunday was not great for the price. However, one thing that stood out for me (and my mother in law) which was a 5 star, was their coffee. I have never had such amazing coffee in my entire God damn life. I would actually return to Calandra's based on their coffee quality alone. I imagine this is a major component of why people eat at this restaurant subconsciously. Their pastries? Eh. Brunch buffet selection? Eh. Coffee? Epic. -Phil Kent

Thomas Dono

Incredible quality and reasonably priced

Bianca Williamson

Very annoyed with this bakery just off of a 1 minute conversation. Literally! 1st impressions are everything, because they fell flat on their 1st impression, I will never know what their desserts taste like. I called inquiring about a last minute custom cake for next week, I told them what I would want and offered to send a picture because I know I couldn't explain it correctly. I was put on hold for a second and then was told they can absolutely do it BUT I would have to come in, I reiterated that I was in another state, and asked if I can pay over the phone as well as send a photo. Very dry she repeated "You would have to come in" So I will not be coming in ever nor will ever provide my business.

Whenever there is an occasion that calls for cake, pastries, or cookies, this place is my go to! Everything is always fresh, and I always get great feedback from family and friends.

Amalfis Soto

When I go there I am in wonderful Sugarland. I love the sweet and clean smell of the store plus everything is so delicious

Patricia Egan

Alvin Mathew

Everything looks aesthetic and I was very excited, but taste was only okay. I guess the mass production of this bakery brings down the quality. If you're looking for truly delicious, authentic dessert, try a smaller bakery. This is still a nice a place to grab a quick dessert and an espresso

suhaib ashraf

Good bread! An ok service . I use to get there pastries but most them taste like what commercially made pastries taste and very high pricing not worth it in my opinion .

Rose Wesolowski

Huge and I mean huge assortment of breads, pastries olive oil. Restaurant on one side bakery in middle and sandwiches on other side. Parking available. $$$

Antoinette Newman

Calandra's is my most favorite bakery. Whenever my Mom and I are in New Jersey this is a must go place. The last time we visited we received the best service from a kind woman. When you walk in the door everything looks so delicious because it is!!


The special pasta was excellent.

Thank you for making my son Birthday cakes just the way he wanted it.

Jason Fierro

Okay so this bakery is honestly the worst bakery in Caldwell area. Its bread is alright its nothing special and its pastries are terrible. It is disgusting and should be shut down. We bought two pies today a pumpkin and a coconut, they were the worst pies my entire family has ever tasted. These pies literally tasted like pesticides. I don't know how its still in business or how people actually like, it is such a commercial bakery and should never be even considered a bakery.

Michael Ingegno

Great bakery.

dawna alexander

Esteban Gutierrez

Derek Zimmerman

Gender reveal cake, CHECK... Christening cake... CHECK... Surprise Birthday cake... CHECK!!! From the pastries and breads to the deli and take away pasta, pizza and sauces, just go here and DARE yourself not to tap into your savings account...

Albert Werrell

Excellent quality. Most expensive bakery on the east cost.

Pablo DePaulis

Amazing pastries! Very friendly staff and the place is so clean and has ample room, quick service, etc. It's a bit pricey if you ask me that's why the 4 stars. Other than that you can't find this quality and selection in bakery anywhere near.

Tom Boyle

Had the pizza cooked nice and crispy. Cannoli filled lobster claw for dessert... ummmm

Barbara Carfagno

Good prices and good products

Justin Avery

Felisha Steele

Hugo Arroyo

I went to Calandra's Bakery and I was GROSSED OUT, while looking for a pastry I saw not seen, saw a ROACH crawling inside the glass near inches from their pastry. I will NEVER return again..

Ryan Stark

We just moved into Caldwell and the girlfriend brought home some pastries from the bakery. Really fantastic, definitely a perk of the area

Peter Toriello

One of the best bakeries around, worth driving to from many miles away. Show up hungry bc the cafe/deli area makes fresh sandwiches and platters...not to mention the restaurant and bar area. Great for large meals and adult nights out.

Welby Lloyd

One of my Favorite places. The bread is so good. but this locations offers more like wine restaurants a deli and ice cream parking is limited during the holidays great place.

Leslie Adams

What an amazing local Italian bakery! They make all their own pastries & food items on-site, and have a HUGE selection. At one end of the large building is a cafe, with pizza sold whole and by the slice, Italian entrees, and drinks. They also have a mini-market of authentic Italian foods, as well as pasta they make themselves. There's a refrigerator/freezer section with entrees you can take home to cook. In the center of the building is the bakery and OH MY I can't even begin to describe it - so many delicious options, from fresh baguettes to Italian cookies, pastries, biscotti, cakes, cupcakes, chocolate-dipped pretzels & more! At the other end of the building is a restaurant, but I didn't make it down that far. I'll definitely return to Calandra's the next time I'm in the area!

sumanth kumpatla

A great place... nice dessert options. Good place to go on a date or take your family.

mae belin

Had a cake tasting. Each cake selection was delicious. The staff was very professional and friendly to work with.

Alan Myers

Decent food and bakery selections but a bit pricey for middling quality.

My aunt & uncle live in West Caldwell and when we visited them I stopped in Calandra's Bakery in Caldwell to pick up bread and a layer cake. It was the worse cake we had ever eaten. We actually threw it in the garbage and had ice cream with our coffee instead. On the other side of the coin, I must admit, that the bread we bought was excellent. My aunt said to us that we wouldn't know not to go there since we are from south Jersey, but they had stopped going there and instead have been buying cake & pastries at Sorrento's Bakery in East Hanover. The next visit up to visit them we stopped in at Sorrento's Bakery and my aunt was correct. WHAT A DIFFERENCE !!! It's like night & day. We did enjoy Calandra's bread, but Sorrento's bread was equally as good.

Brian Milhorn

All quality.

Richard Horner

Great sandwiches! Awesome bakery items too! Wine available also!

Excellent, REAL Italian bakery. Breads, cakes, cookies. Maybe they should have had the TV show.

Rosendo Espinoza

Nadia Pulgar

I was told about a cannoli cream filled doughnut and went to get one myself. This thing was delicious. I mean it's Calandra's and everything is delicious, but what I now call the ....Donnoli.... it hit the spot. Love this place.

Amanda Knight

Elias Fedai

I prefer the Calandras in Newark, the cakes at the other location seem to taste fresher. The bakery itself at this location has good bread and pastries.

Best Italian bread

Tom Parrish

"Old school" bakery with extra options (i.e. Napolitan pizza, fresh sandwiches, pasta, and a restaurant)

Carmine Iacullo

A real gyp if you ask me! On Christmas day I purchased 2 loaves of French bread and 2 day old pastries for $12 bucks!

Devon Lee

Pizza, pastry, cakes, gelato, homemade pasta, fresh bread, sauces, imports, great restaurant - if you're looking for anything Italian, welcome to your one-stop shop.

Michelle Moriarty
