Om Sweet Home, a popular bakery that serves up vegan and gluten-free treats, has a long history in North Jersey. After getting its start by operating out of a commercial kitchen in Hoboken, owner Dawn Pascale opened up her first retail storefront in Cliffside Park in January 2017. The bakery and coffee shop, unfortunately, closed in July 2021, but that would not be the end of Om Sweet Home. Dawn recently announced her venture back into local retail, and two of the locations where she will be selling her vegan and gluten-free treats are in Montclair. Read on for more about Om Sweet Home’s story as well as where you will be able to find its products in Montclair and North Jersey.

About Om Sweet Home + The Former Shop
The shop in Cliffside Park had its official ribbon cutting on January 9th, 2017. Previously baking out of a commercial kitchen inside of the Pilsener Haus in Hoboken since 2013, the facility in Cliffside Park was Dawn’s very first storefront.
On July 31st, 2021 the popular vegan bakery and coffee shop Om Sweet Home closed its doors after almost five years at 708 Anderson Avenue in Cliffside Park. But, as they say, when one door closes another opens – and loyal customers of the bakery had something to look forward to. We chatted with Dawn, the pastry chef and owner of Om Sweet Home, in 2021 about what the future of the company looks like.
The outpost was about 800 square feet and included a coffee shop that served up delicious baked goods like pastries, muffins, doughnuts, and custom cakes that were vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, wheat-free, and palm oil-free, using non-GMO organic products made with its original non-dairy butter alternative. It also offered coffee.
On the last day of July 2021, Dawn posted a video via Om Sweet Home’s Instagram page formerly announcing that the shop had closed. She expressed her gratitude for her staff and patrons over the years and reassured everyone that is not the end of the road for the bakery. “This is not goodbye. Stay tuned, you haven’t seen the last of me yet.”
