Welcome to Bruce's of Great Neck!
We are proud to announce that Bruce's of Great Neck was voted "BEST BREAKFAST in BOCA" by the Sun Sentinel's edition of "Best of Boca"
Bruce's Bakery was founded in 1976 on the "Gold Coast" of Merrick, Long Island. After several years of operation, Bruce's expanded to Roosevelt Field, Long Island. In 1983, Bruce decided that Great Neck, NY, would be the perfect place to sell his high-quality line of baked goods. Expanding the concept to a full service restaurant, Bruce's became a "one-of-a-kind" operation. It had something for everyone from cinnamon raisin bobka french toast, nova platters, to gourmet paninis. Over the years, a complimentary basket of fresh baked goods had become their trademark and tradition. At Bruce's, we firmly believed in the "word of mouth" advertising and that our satisfied customers would spread the "word" around town. We only use the highest quality ingredients and standards to meet the high expectations of our customers at our famous restaurant and bakery. Today, that tradition continues in our new bakery/restaurant in Boca Raton, Florida.
At Bruce's, our catering became the most renowned in NY. Patrons from Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Long Island flocked to Bruce's for all special occasions to indulge in baked goods, custom catering or just to relax in our celebrated restaurant. When Westbury Music Fair needed a special cake to commemorate Bob Hope's 75th birthday, Bruce INVENTED the celebrity "look-a-like" cake. A recent sampling of our portrait cakes included the likes of Jay Leno, Bill Cosby, Christie Brinkley, Cindy Crawford, Katie Couric, Matt Lauer, Tom Cruise, Heather Locklear, Howard Stern, Julio Iglesias and Mickey Mantle. Bruce has been seen on numerous television shows including: The Regis Philbin Show, The Today Show, The John Stewart Show, Fox and Friends, The Food Channel and major news shows on NBC, CBS, and ABC. Bruce's has also won the prestigious award from the Metro Channels "NY Eats" for the best challah in New York City. Write ups have also appeared in Newsday, The NY Post, The Daily News, and NY Magazine. Over the years, Bruce has been proud to be associated with hundreds of celebrities and luminaries from all walks of life.

Bruce's is deeply committed and firmly believes in community service, whether donating a dinner for 100 retuning Gulf War veterans and their wives, making a road more attractive in Great Neck, being a major sponsor for the Great Neck Art Center or daily donations to senior citizens, group homes or soup kitchens. Bruce's was honored to be the recipient of the Giraffe Award, Great Neck's most prestigious award for continued outstanding community service. As former President George Bush, Sr. said in his letter of commendation to Bruce's: "You are to be commended for your spirit and deep involvement in your community... Our nation thrives on civic pride. You are a local institution that Great Neck can be proud of."
