Breads Bakery


Breads Bakery is the carb epicenter that I always dreamed of as a child, and now a fat adult. This really has to be one of the greatest bakeries in American. There are several locations the largest of which is in Union Square. They bake everything on premise so that all the offerings are artisanal and hand-made with love.  You'll find every type of carb designed to satisfy your sweet and savory cravings. I'll go ahead and say they have the best rugelach and babka in America. On the savory side there are freshly baked breads, assorted rolls, and challah. You can order shakshuka bread, with an egg baked in it (just let that sink in). If you want to hang out for the day on your computer they have salad, soups, sandwiches, and the nicest staff passing out samples. Keep in mind that Breads offers fantastic options for catering, baking classes, delivery, and holiday specials of every variety.
