Best Cupcakes In New Jersey! Brownie Points in Summit.

Several years ago my wife and I were driving down South Le Brea Avenue in Los Angeles when out of the corner of my eye I caught the words “Rita Flora Kitchen”. Without saying a word, I jumped out of the car and ran across the street dodging oncoming vehicles. Unscathed, I bolted right up to the counter and ordered a huge (I mean HUGE) piece of apple pie. Sat down at a table an inhaled it. It was amazing, however my ecstasy was short lived as my wife walked in the café and…..well you know the rest of the story.

So why am I telling you this? Am I about to do a blurb on the best shrinks in New Jersey? Nyet. Actually, I simply wanted to illustrate that there are some things worth dying for – and fantastic baked goods are one of them.

You won’t encounter the insane Los Angeles traffic on Beechwood Road in Summit, however, you will find a bakery that is literally to die for. Brownie Points.

The buzz on Brownie Points has been whipping through the streets of Summit. This happens anytime something special enters our pseudo small-town world. It blasted into my arena recently, not from the yada..yada..yada crowd – but from real foodies I respect.

Well, I stopped by the other day to check it out, and I have to say – “this place is off the hook”.

Owner Bob Conway (Formerly of Gramercy Tavern) has put together some of the most delicious baked goods ever. Just passing by the front door of Brownie Points made the blood coursing through my veins begin to pump faster.

There’s definitely no shortage of sugar and cream at Brownie Points. If you’re planning a birthday party or just need a midday sugar infusion, this would be the best place to make it happen.

Some of the highlights include: various types brownies, whoopee pies, hummingbird cakes, parfait, muffins, various fruit pies, brioche cinnamon rolls and of course multicolored cup cakes.

Take it from a person who has serious issues with sugar, if you need a fix — put that Atkins Bar in your desk drawer and head over to Brownie Points in beautiful Summit, New Jersey.

You won’t thank me later, but you’ll be happy now.

Ready….. Set……. Binge.
