Chesters is one of my favorite places for those cute mini sticky buns. I went over this past Sunday and grabbed a box but found them to only be partially covered in the sweet oooeee gooie stuff.

So I have eaten my... More

Chester's is a very popular Old fashioned bakery right on RT 9 in Somers Point, NJ. Everything is fresh daily they even have specialty items like German butter cake for example. Excellent cinnamon buns, old style Donuts, cookies, delicious pound cakes and fresh coffee. They open most days at 6 am you can't go wrong at Chester's.

Great selections and coffee. Love the small Danish and doughnuts . Love the cinnamon buns and cheese Danish . Service is always friendly and very helpful . Parking at the door and prices are reasonable . Sometimes very crowded, but always worth the wait.

If you are a donut, danish or pastry lover, this is a must visit! Although the building isn't very appealing, the taste of the danish, pastries and donuts is. This is a family favorite. Although it's about 20 minutes away, we always serve them to company or for the kids birthdays. If we're headed that way, we always stop for... More

The crumb danish is the nearest thing to crumb buns of my childhood. They are generous, tasty and .....they run out of them quickly. This bakery is great for special occasion goodies and have the...

We had ordered a chocolate cake with butter cream icing. It was delicious! We used to get Cake Lady cakes, but she isn't open any more. Glad that we had Chester's recommended to us!
