Besides nice Danish and pick ups, I always get my challah here. Go in the morning and get the rye bread. Many times, several pieces are missing before I even get it home. The seeded is the best!

While it has been a some time since I've been to Rainbow, it was at one time a regular stop for me. Great bagels, breads, pastries, and other baked goods. Rainbow Bakery was at one time the premier bakery of its type (in the last few years, there are many new top notch bakeries in the metropolitan area). Do yourself... More

Their breads are so much better than what you get in a grocery store. Bagels are decent - this is not NYC - and they have a unique rye bread worth trying, called sisal. For a treat, try the Russian tea cake or brownies.

I have tried Rainbow several times over the years as I love Kosher bakeries. I find their cookies to be very dry and the Challah disappointing. Tastes more like white bread than the golden sweet Challahs That I can get in NYC. Staff are nice & helpful

What Rainbow Bakery does best are: brownies, bagels, and checkerboard cakes. It's best to order the checkerboard cake ahead of time because they don't always have them in the case.
