Best rugelach?

  • p

Where can I find great rugelach these days? I remember that Yitz's used to be really good but I'm not sure if that's still the case. I'd prefer to stay midtown or downtown, if possible, but if I have to go up to Sheppard or Steeles, I will. I'd also like to get a few different flavours - maybe apricot, raspberry and chocolate or cinammon. Thanks!

  1. I really like the chocolate rugelah from Harbord Bakery. They have lots of other flavours too.

      I haven't had them in a long time, but Chapmans at York Mills\Bayview were the closest to homemade I have had.

        The three H's are the best. Harbord, Hermes and Haymishe

      2. I'll tell you what to avoid - the mini apricot/raspberry rugelach at the Big Carrot juice bar.

        1. I cannot imagine chocolate rugelach better than the ones at What a Bagel. I live in Milwaukee and get my parents to bring large quantities of them from Toronto whenever they visit so that there are always some in the freezer.

            I second What a Bagel. I've been addicted to these for years. I was just there 10 minutes ago and had to force myself not to buy any.

            I haven't tried Grodzinski's or Wanda's but I definitely will.

          2. Wanda's Pie in the Sky (on Yorkville and probably at their new location on Mt. Pleasant) - they have raspberry, chocolate and apricot flavors (may be others?).

            1. Grodzinski's Bakery - on Bathurst within a block or two of Ranee - on the east side. Kosher bakery, so closed early on Friday and all day Saturday. They have chocolate or cinammon/raisin.
