Challah From Jewish Bakery in Trenton/Princeton?

With the abrupt closing of Weinstein's deli here in Lawrenceville, NJ a few weeks ago, we are left with no good source of GOOD Challah for the holidays. Theirs came froma NY bakery, we were told over the years. They were also the source for good matzo ball soup and stuffed cabbage.

Any suggestions? I'm relatively new to the area and trying to accomodate my Jewish better half before she goes insane.

Thanks in advance!

    Rich: You can pick it up in Philly at Kaplan's New Model Bakery 3rd and Poplar where most of the Philly Deli's get it.

      You could buy some frozen Challah dough in the supermarket or online or call Wenner Bread Products 1-800-869-6262. Then make the Challah for your better half. It's easy, very tasty and will be more meaningful than bakery bought.

        Try your local Shop Rite, which may have a kosher store-in-a-store which will have a variety of challahs, also probably from NY.

        Places to get challah in Center City Philly:
        Metropolitan Bakery (regular and saffron-raisin)
        Le Bus (will have round challahs for Rosh Hashanah)
        Irene's Bakery on 20th above Walnut
        Swiss Pastry Shop (owned by Moishe's Addison Bakery family) on 19th near Chestnut.
        Bravermans Bakery in Reading Terminal (same family as Le Bus)

        Some of the above chains may have stores near you, or maybe there are stores that carry their bread. Thank you.

          NOT SO! Completely different. There is a Le Bus in the Terminal (At least I think it's still there) and David Braverman owns Le Bus but he doesn't own Braverman's in the Terminal.

          I used to work with David's Mom.

            Sorry, you are right. I just got confused by the names.
