Introduction

New York’s Union Square got dramatically more delicious in early 2013, when owner Gadi Peleg teamed up with master baker Uri Scheft to offer Manhattanites uncompromisingly fantastic breads and artisanal cookies. An ever-growing devout following—from college students to the foodie set to prominent New York media—regularly flocks here for unrivaled classic Jewish pastries like their famous chocolate Babka.

About the Food

Israeli-Danish master baker Uri Scheft’s breads and pastries are ultra fresh, delicious, and expertly handmade from the finest ingredients. Slow proofed for sharper and more flavorful results, the pure deliciousness of his rustic loaves, flaky cheese straws and classic rugelach and babka (voted best in NYC by New York Magazine) is reason enough to indulge. But health-minded baking—including the use of whole grains, seeds, and natural and organic ingredients when possible—adds to their overall awesomeness.

Meet the Owner

Owner Gadi Peleg (right) made a shrewd business move when he recruited master baker Uri Scheft (left) to work at Breads. The baker had already developed legendary status in the bread world through Lehamim Bakery, which he’s been running in Tel Aviv’s since 2001. Born in Israel to Danish immigrant parents, Uri grew up in Israel and Denmark where he found his love for baking while watching his mother make the Sabbath challah every Friday. Travel throughout Europe and France allowed him to hone his craft. Together, with Gadi, the two are garnering an ever-growing number of accolades throughout New York and beyond.

[The Babka Pie was] fluffy and light on the inside, crispy and caramelized on the outside, and chocolatey and melty throughout. Just slice, serve and sigh.

A finger-licking cross between brioche and a sticky bun, the sweet, swirled dough is laced with cinnamon and studded with plum raisins and crushed walnuts, moist in the middle with a sugary crust on top.

Time out New York

Quote icon

As soon as the babkas emerge from the oven, which they do at least three times a day, Scheft's team bathes them in sugar syrup, ensuring a crisp, burnished crust and a rich, chocolate-veined interior that remains tantalizingly moist for days.

The Breads babka, made with laminated dough and plenty of Nutella, has carved out a niche as one of New York's signature destination treats. And for good reason. Imagine a pain au chocolat overstuffed to the point of bursting with chocolate hazelnut spread, then twisted inside out and baked. Sound good? Yet despite the richness, the layers of dough and chocolate are surprisingly well balanced, and the buttery flakes of the lamination shine through to form wonderful crunchy edges. Best of all, Breads bakes several times a day, so your chances of getting a fresh babka after work shoot way up.

Packaging & Delivery

All food from Breads Bakery is shipped for overnight delivery.

All orders are shipped signature release. This means UPS will leave the package at the doorstep, front desk or gate associated with the shipping address without requiring a signature upon delivery. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that the contents of the package are stored in a freezer or refrigerator promptly after delivery. FoodyDirect cannot be responsible for orders with incomplete or invalid addresses, or that are sent to recipients who are not available to store the contents of the order on the day of arrival. UPS cannot deliver to a P.O. box.

Storage & Care

Babkas, Banana Bread & Rugelach are pulled from the bakery's ovens at 4 or 5pm the day they are shipped, so they are incredibly fresh when they arrive at your door the next day. Enjoy within 24 hours of arrival, or freeze immediately for up to 60 days. If frozen, thaw at room temperature for 2 to 3 hours - they will still taste delicious and fresh.
