So there is never a dull moment here at Zai’s Dessertery! To catch everyone up: We shut down briefly to do our part in helping to keep our employees and customers safe while we figured out how to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic in NJ. That was a really awful time. Our hearts go out to all the front line workers that were overwhelmed during the peak of the virus and to all of the families that had to deal with unexpected sickness and losses. It has been horrible.
We were very grateful to be able to help our friends and family cope with the issues that were caused by the virus, but not being able to bake in my beautiful little dessert shop in Bergenfield, where we make the best macarons in NJ, really made me so sad! Instead of getting depressed, my husband Ifraz and I decided to focus on what we could do to make Zai’s Dessertery even more accessible to people who love dessert shops in New Jersey.
That’s when we decided to open our second location! And if you haven’t heard yet, we will be coming soon to 22 Union Avenue in Cresskill, NJ! We are so excited! We made the announcement through Instagram and Facebook in July, and then Esther Davidowitz, the food editor for NorthJersey.com, wrote an AWESOME article about our amazing dessert shop in NJ! The article highlights our success in Bergenfield, our plans for expansion and my fantastic dancing moves that can been seen on TikTok! (LOL!) Thank you again Esther! (You can also find Esther on Twitter at @EstherDavido.)

Last but not least – after we figured out how to rearrange our store traffic to re-opened safely this past June, we quickly made another pretty big announcement! As of July 2nd, you can now order the best custom cakes in Bergen County for all of your special occasions! If you follow us on Instagram, you can see all of the beautiful cakes that come out of our shop every week! We would love to help you put the “cherry on top” of your next special occasion with one of our amazing custom cakes. If you would like to some ideas for designs and flavors, please don’t hesitate to call!
(A Special Note About Custom Cakes: Custom Cakes take some additional time to plan, design, bake, build and decorate. Please give us a least a week’s lead time when ordering your custom cake. Thank you!)
