Cake Boss Cafe in New York's Port Authority Bus Terminal

Cake Boss Café, from baker/ cake decorator Buddy Valastro (best known from TLC’s hit show Cake Boss) officially opened Wednesday morning inside New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal. The offshoot of the famed Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, N.J., is Valastro’s first independent venture, and the shop sells the same baked goods that previously were only accessible across the Hudson River.

While "inside the bus terminal" might not exactly be an ideal location, it’s very close to Times Square (and the tourists who line up outside Carlo’s every day), is bright and spacious, and is easy to find in the terminal’s North Wing, on 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue. The cake decorating kitchen is visible from the sidewalk, and Valstrso himself was on hand Wednesday to show off his skills (left).  

And while nothing is baked on the premises, the items sold are baked in the same location as the goods available at Carlo’s, and are brought in fresh every morning. They include cannoli, lobster tails, tiramisu, cream puffs, cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and lots of other Italian desserts.

The shop is open daily from 7 a.m.to 9 p.m.
