Jersey's Best

The Macaroon Shop receives coveted awardThe Macaroon Shop pies are in the top five in all of New Jersey. 

The Macaroon Shop in Avon-by-the-Sea.  Here is another shop with quite a history.  Established in 1930 on the first floor of the North End Hotel in Ocean Grove, the bakery operated as a seasonal business during the summer months.  In 1981 they moved to their current location where they expanded their offerings to include cakes, cookies, danish, pies and desserts.   The Macaroon shop is known for its old-fashioned Coconut Custard and Pecan Pies. And, their Macaroons are still shipped anywhere in the United States like they have been since 1930.

Hamburger Cake

New Jersey Monthly Magazine: Best of Jersey: Good Eating (Feb. 2008) recognizes The Macaroon Shop as "the Best Bakery in New Jersey!"

Specialty cakes from the Macaroon Shop in Avon-by-the-Sea include the signature Hamburger Cake, but the 16- to 18-inch-high holiday varieties are also festive and delicious.

Our fave: the Thanksgiving Stuffed Turkey (yellow cake with chocolate-fudge filling and buttercream frosting), which looks so much like the real bird, you might not know it's a cake until you carve it.

The same award was given to the Macaroon Shop in March 2006.

Macaroons take the cake at Dessert Wars

Macaroons take the cake at Dessert Wars


A room full of delicious desserts — sounds like a dream come true.

And for The Macaroon Shop, it was.

On May 29, the Avon-by-the-Sea bakery took home the People’s Choice award at WJLK-FM 94.3 The Point’s third annual Dessert Wars. Its winning entries? Coconut, almond and chocolate-covered macaroons.

“We really had a great night,” said Claire Morrison, who has owned The Macaroon Shop with her husband, Chris, since 2001, in a news release. “The best part is when people taste our macaroons for the first time. Their reactions of delight, the sounds they make as they chew the macaroons ... it’s priceless. Everybody just loves them.”

Dessert Wars, which took place at River Rock Restaurant and Marina Bar in Brick, was attended by hundreds who enjoyed sweets from 20 local restaurants, bakeries, caterers and sweet shops, according to the release. The contest categories were baked, cold, and candy desserts.
