Opening Alert: Bars & Bites, East Rutherford, NJ

Bars & Bites, a new bakery and cafe, has opened in East Rutherford.

Shop owners Matt Lauro, Joe Lauro, and Richard Langley are all first time food business owners, with Matt handling the baking – he’s  been working in kitchens and bakeries for 12 years, with experience in farm-to-table and organic cooking and baking that he learned while working in Vermont.

The menu includes all types of baked goods, such as muffins, cookies, brownies, cake bars and breads (sweet breads such as banana bread, as well as fresh breads such as baguettes, French country bread, sourdough, etc), all crafted using fresh seasonal ingredients (ex: cider doughnuts in autumn/winter made with NY-sourced organic apples). Coffee is organic and comes roasted from Vermont.


They also do an assortment of gluten free, vegan-friendly, and dietary-restriction-specific goods – like low or no sugar, dairy-free, and soy-free. Every single item is hand-made and freshly-baked on premises.

A lunch menu is coming in the near future featuring salads, sandwiches (made with their fresh-baked bread), bowls, granola parfaits, and more. They currently offer two signature breakfast sandwiches, each made with locally-sourced ingredients and served with signature house-made sauces on house-baked breads.

The store is about 750 square feet and seats 12-15 people. Their hours are Monday through Friday from 7AM to 4PM and Saturdays from 8AM to 4PM (closed Sundays).
