The pretzel has been a staple of New York street cart vendors for almost as long as the City has been in existence. Breads' bakers decided to make the best possible version of the New York Pretzel. Toward that goal, the bakers replaced the usually all white flour with some organic, New York State Rye. They use the Rye flour to create a beautiful rye sourdough starter. This gives some complex notes to this seemingly simple dough and also makes the pretzel lighter and gives it a beautiful, light texture. Available exclusively at our Rock Center bakery. Come and try one! 🥨 ⁠

The best part about Hanukkah kicking it off on Sunday is that the approaching-icon-status Breads Bakery breaks out the creamy Sufganiyot (seen here in passion fruit, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry), the lovely Latkes, and—sleeper hit alert—a dense and insanely almondy Stollen covered in enough powered sugar to make a total mess. On sale now at all locations! Hanukkah Sameach!!

Have you tried the Bialy Babka?

Have you tried the Bialy Babka?

Something fun!

The Bialy Babka, a stretchy, rich savory bread ribboned with caramelized onions and poppy seeds and twisted into a loaf pan, is one of the best things I've ever made. It's toasty, fragrant, and an absolute dream whether you eat it plain, spread with butter, heaped with cream cheese and lox, or simply toasted to go with a cozy bowl of soup.

But what if you want this in your life (now, please) and you don't want to bake it yourself? Today is your day!

The Smitten Kitchen x Breads Bakery Bialy Babka -- a hybrid of our two beloved recipes, in celebration of the release of Smitten Kitchen Keepers -- is now on sale at Breads Bakery locations in Manhattan (Union Square, Lincoln Center and Upper East Side) and can be ordered online too to ship throughout the domestic United States (plus Hawaii and Alaska).

I'm a little biased, but I'm pretty sure you'd be my favorite person forever if you sent me one of these in the mail.

You can find ordering information on the breadsbakery.com website: https://www.breadsbakery.com/bialy-babka-info/

"Breads’ attention to detail and creativity extend across its French and Jewish pastry menu, from flaky cinnamon rolls and crisp butter pecan cookies to an assortment of well-executed patisserie. Fans flock to their many holiday specials, from a laminated black and white cookie to a beautiful round challah with a whole, roasted apple nestled at the center. While their chocolate babka is a must try, their best kept secret is their crisp, flaky gouda cheese sticks." - Eater NY

We’re so thankful to Kelly at Bread’s Bakery for teaching us how to braid and bake our very own challah bread! Luckily for us, it didn’t stop there — we made pizza rolls and a delicious chocolate babka. Cooking camp doesn’t get any better than this!

Dear Breads Bakery, what I would do to taste your Black Forest Brioche... Greetings from the director and cast of THE CAKEMAKER :)
We had the most wonderful challah bread cooking class for kids with Chef Kelly at Breads Bakery! There's nowhere else we'd go to get our favorite pastries and breads. If you haven't treated yourself to a sweet from the Breads Bakery team, you are missing out!
We're getting ready for our cooking class at Breads Bakery with local kids, and we couldn't be more excited to try our hand at making challah bread! What a treat to learn alongside the best bakers in the city — see you in the kitchen!
Awesome taste.
I loved what I ate at union square and brought back home rugellach and bread. incredibly delicious
