Not only does Antique Bar & Bakery, at 122 Willow Avenue in Hoboken, have its roots in a 125-year-old bakery in Hoboken, but its 125-year-old coal oven is the largest in the United States and is used for far more than bread baking. This 425-square-foot oven cooks everything from coal-fired steaks, burgers, and mac & cheese to oven-seared bread pudding topped with caramel sauce.
