Bakeries in Metuchen

Select Local Merchants

Inside Buttery Bake Shoppe, bakers spend their days crafting a range of homemade treats using only kosher ingredients. They create custom cakes, which they decorate for special occasions, or hearty loaves of bread that add a rustic feel to meals throughout the day. They are perhaps best known for their pastries and sweets, such as soft cookies straight from the oven or chocolate-covered brownies on a stick, which burst with rich flavors like a stock brokers' food fight.

A flaky danish enfolds prunes and almond paste. A banana-cream pie sports tufts of fresh-whipped cream. There’s a certain nostalgic quality to the baked goods at La Bonbonniere Bake Shoppe, which is fitting for a place whose origins date back to 1952, the year nostalgia was discovered. Each morning, seasoned bakers whip up cupcakes, batches of real buttercream frosting, and sugar-laced pastries. They also knead dough for nearly a dozen varieties of bread including french, rye, and pumpernickel.

Though sweets are the shop’s focus, they have a full-catering menu with soups, sandwiches, and hot meals. In addition, they offer a wide variety of canned jams and salsa, plus organic dog treats.
