Born in Central Europe and elevated in Israel, the braided loaf-shaped cake known as babka is at its best in New York City—and now your home!—thanks to Union Square's legendary Breads Bakery™. Shipped mere hours after they’re pulled from the oven and anointed with sugar syrup to ensure its crisp, burnished crust and moist interior, you can’t find better, fresher, or more crave-worthy babka than this! Breads Bakery™ bakes their iconic chocolate babkas all-day, every day, using cultured butter from France, Nutella, and Belgian dark-chocolate chips, all of which are spread over the dough before braiding it into a traditional babka loaf. Great for brunch, dessert, or to nibble with your favorite coffee, these babkas also make the perfect host gift – just make sure you keep a few for yourself!

Very good products. Warm them up, dig in and let your body and mind enjoy the input.

Light, flaky and bread-like, unlike a traditional heavier Babka bread. The chunks of chocolate with the buttery crumb makes this a perfect breakfast treat. Even though the price for 3 is steep, they are so good, I freeze them after thickly slicing them, and eat them slowly by toasting the slice in the AM. Great way to start the day. 5 stars +++

Saw this when I was sitting in front of my computer hungry and made an impulse buy! So glad I did.....ate the 1st one by myself and loved every bite. The other 2 I brought to 2 separate parties and everyone raved over it. They were gone in minutes and at least 2 friends will be ordering more!.

We agree - Breads' Babka is the absolute BEST babka anywhere. We like their chocolate babka the best - flaky, flavorful, and they use the richest dark chocolate.

not only the best babka in NY , but the best I've ever had - and that includes in Hungary , home of babka ! I still have one (I got 3 as a gift), carefully hidden in the freezer for some big occasion - maybe when Trump is impeached ?

Absolutely amazing! The best ever. Light, not too sweet, totally authentic. Just like my Grandmother used to make. Plus, it keeps very well in freezer. As good after refrigeratoion as freshly baked. Slight reheating makes it even more heavenly.

I've never been a huge Babka fan...UNTIL NOW! These are DIVINE! Moist, flavorful, chocolatey, rich,....DELICIOUS! I had to wrestle one out of the hands of my family so I could freeze it for later enjoyment. I will be coming back for more goodies. To think I've been eating sub par Babka all these years.

The package came on the exact date it was promised and the babkas were fresh and absolutely delectable. Lovely to have the best of New York in ol' St. Louis!

Babka is my son's favorite. I thought some that was being called The Best Babka in New York, would be a fun treat for a holiday gift. The Babka was good. But pricey. And in the end, we decided it wasn't worth the money. Go get Babka at you local Trader Joes. Great Babka at a much better price!

This order was sent to my mother. I shared my first order with her. Recently she asked about it, so I had an order shipped to her. She gave on loaf to a friend. They enjoyed it. My mother and sister loved it. I'll have to send it occasionally. It's a big hit!

It was delicious and arrived quickly. I brought it to a luncheon with friends who never heard of a Babka. I served it with vanilla ice cream on the side and everyone was so impressed with how good it tasted. A perfect dessert.

The Babkas arrived on the day specified and were packed securely so all that all three were in tact and fresh which was incredibly important as they were to be gifts!!! Well done!!!

I've ordered their babkas in the past; excellent. This time, however, the 3-pk were dry. The outside overbaked, but the center moist. If one cuts the crust--top, sides, bottom, and eats only what remains, delicious.

Best babka in NY is the best babka. Delivered on time.

Delivery was received on time. The food was well packaged. It was excellent. It was moist and had just the right amount of chocolate. I sliced it and used the toaster. My kitchen smelled like chocolate. Another method I used was the microwave. I put it in for a few seconds and it worked very well. I froze the other loafs until I gave one away. It was enjoyed by the person that received it. I used it as a desert on one occasion. After taking it out of the toaster a tablespoon of ice cream was put on it. I will order this again. I know it will go great in the winter with a hot cup off coffee. It will be great for replacing the morning pastry.

Best use of Nutella ever.

It was Ok, but I have had better. I was also disappointed how small they were .

Shipping Days
Storage & Care:

The babkas 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 your babkas 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.

Allergy Alert:

Contains Nutella (Hazelnut Spread)
