My 80 year old husband, a retired NYPD and Viet Nam Vet, took my grandson to the bakery to purchase some donuts for our beach house. While there, my husband was in desperate need of a bathroom and was told NO. At that point, my...husband could not control himself and urinated in his shorts. My grandson, 8 years old, made sure that my he took his embarrassed grandfather the less obvious route back to our beach house so no one would notice. THIS IS A DISGRACE. We have been coming to Lavallette for over 40 years and I have never been more upset an over the disrespect shown to both my husband and grandson. My grandson has more empathy than the owners of Colonial Bakery in Lavallette. I am most proud of my grandson.More

Awesome traditional bakery for everything from iced coffee to cookies to pastries. Order ahead or walk in (with a mask!).

Sure it has become expensive but the Jersey Shore is an expensive place but here you get your what you pay for - excellent crumb buns and pasteries. There can be a line but it moves quickly. Never a visit to the shore without stopping...here.More

Colonial makes some of the best crumb cake around. Iced or not, with fruit or without. No matter which variety you choose it is sure to please.

Every year we look forward to the summer opening of Colonial bakery! Best and freshest breads, cookies, cakes and donuts! The crumb cake and donuts are always a big hit with family and friend! Feeling sad as the fall approaches knowing the bakery will close...soon for the winter!More

We frequent the bakery multiple times during our weeklong vacation every year. We love everything, especially the Jerry cookie and cinnamon raisin bread.

Cookies are way over priced. Don’t bring in little ones or you will be spending a ton for cookies. The cinnamon bread is the best. I get them to slice it and make French toast with it .. the family goes bonkers for it. And...you don’t need syrup with it. They are open late and they don’t make the products on location so it’s always never really super fresh. It’s the only game in town so it’s always a line. It goes quick. Yum just a lot of $$$More

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I would just like to clarify that we make everything in house fresh every night so I’m unsure of what products you have received that were not fresh. If anything is ever not quite right, please...More
