4. Churro Ice Cream from Hamilton Pork – 10th Street, Jersey City
Seems ironic that you should go to Hamilton pork for dessert? BUT they have more than just pork, and anything in waffle form is an automatic YES for me. This Churro Waffle Ice cream sandwich is like heaven in a bowl. Please do yourself the favor.

What’s better then pizza? A Nutella pizza, of course. Head into Porta Jersey City for a taste of this gem!
8. Carmen De La Rosa Bakery – 37 Coles Street, Jersey City
Carmen De La Rosa bakery is simply amazing. They make all kinds of cakes and can do all different designs. Personally, this is where my family and I buy our cakes for every single birthday and occasion. Get the Dominican cake with the Dulce de Leche filling. MMM MM.
9. Baonanas – 219 West Side Ave, Jersey City
So exactly what are Boananas? Well… taken straight from their website, the definition of Boananas is: (noun) alternating layers of cakey wafers, fresh bananas, and our incredibly light and fluffy pudding made with love by bao bears.
And there it is. I will be stopping in to have one of these very, very soon.
10. Dulce De Leche Bakery – 376 Central Ave, Jersey City
I wish I could pinpoint you guys to one specific dessert when it comes to Dulce de Leche bakery in the Heights, but I have yet to anything I did not like from this place. Truly, my mission is to try something new from here until I’ve tried them all. From the Tres Leches to the chocolate cake, it’s all amazing.
