I don't know how I have missed this little treasure, but "Just Desserts" on Lafayette Avenue in Hawthorne was listed on a "best desserts" spot for Northern NJ by NJ.com's Peter Genovese. Just when you think that there is no where left to buy a good old-fashioned fresh, dense, moist, flavorful, homemade-like-grandma-made chocolate cake.....no worries, it's being made by the wonderful folks at "Just Desserts". We also tried the red velvet....even better!!! The cupcakes are $2.50/each. The cakes are between $23-33.
They seem to do a big "special occasion" business. And for those who care, the service was friendly and the place was super-clean. We watched them as they were baking....their kitchen adjoins their small display area....very nice. www.justdessertsnj.com
