Open since 1947, Millers Bakery offers a wide array of freshly baked goodies, from seasonally themed cookies to decadent cream cakes. Early-morning risers can wake up with a ring or filled donut ($0.85 each), with tempting varieties such as oat bran, cinnamon, powdered jelly, and chocolate French. Gift a special someone a frosting-laden hazelnut cream or carrot cake specialty cupcake ($1.95 each). Pumpkin, apple, and blueberry pies ($8.50 for 8-inch pie) will be hot commodities for those looking for dessert on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Three Stooges reenactment day.

This Groupon can also be used toward the purchase of a custom order, which requires a 48-hour notice.

- There aren't too many bakeries in this area that have the kinds of pastries, cookies, pies, that they sell, so it is a great choice if you are in the area and need that "sweet" fix. – Leslie M., Yelp, on Cliffside Park location
- Probably the best bake shop in NJ. Crumb cake is beyond compare. Great place for coffee too. – Phillip Tataglia, Urbanspoon, on Tenafly location
