What is The Best Dessert Place on Long Island?


There’s always room for dessert. And thankfully, local restaurants have been very creative with their dessert menus. But what is the best dessert place on Long Island?

Long Islanders voted Front Street Bakery the Best Dessert Place on Long Island in the 2021 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest!

Red velvet, carrot, cheesecake “to die for” and a “fabulous Seven Layer Cake” are all mentioned in hundreds of customer reviews of this third-generation enterprise. The bake shop is housed elegantly behind a cement block facade with European cafe-style architecture.

A dentil with triangular pediment and pineapple finial, along with black and white striped awnings and green and gold-lettered signage make it seem authentic. Once inside you’ll want to see the Danish crumb cake and dot cookies – kids get a free one and you can order these in any color- everyone talks about.

Customers talk incessantly about these online and you won’t click around long to read about sensational cakes decorated with such finesse that they’re almost too pretty to eat but of course you will and and savor every bite.

Front Street Bakery is located at 51 Front St. in Rockville Centre. It can be reached at 516-766-1199 or frontstreetbakery.com
