This place always has amazing bread. It is made fresh daily and has a sour, rustic flavor that goes well with anything. It has selective hours so check their website before making the trip. They have several different types of bread. Do not miss this...More

We've been going here for years. The school bus used to drop the kids off across the street and we would dash in here for our afternoon snack. The best challah, the best breads, friendly service, just a great little neighborhood treat.
