Bakery/Challah - White Plains to Tarrytown?

Does anyone know a good bakery (in general) and a good bakery where I can get challah in the area around White Plains or Tarrytown or anywhere in between?

    You could try Kisco Kosher Deli (the old Mount Kisco Kosher Deli), now at 230 E Post Rd, White Plains, NY
    (914) 948-6600.

      My two favorite bakeries are the Harrison Bake Shop in Harrison and Cerbone's in Rye Ridge...they both have challah.

      The White Plains Bake Shop is my third choice, they carry challah as well. But don't get the manager angry.

        I like the challahs (and other breads, as well) at Turcos. I have friends that swear by a brand of challah carried by Super Sol in the Golden Horseshoe Shopping Ctr (on New Rochelle/Scarsdale line). Also a good bakery not far from there: Scarsdale Pastry Ctr on Weaver St. Whole Foods carries some good breads, but I don't think I've tried their challah.

          The White Plains bakery on Mamaroneck Avenue is pretty good. They have challah and other Jewish-type bakery items (ie hamentaschen, babka, etc) as well as Italian pastries and standard bakery goods.

            You can always order it from Challah Connection in Wesport, Ct. They have online ordering and regular delivery. You can find them in the bake good section of Food411.com.

            The absolute "best" is Rockland Bakery in Nanuet New York. They supply many restaurants and you can get the challah fresh hot out of the oven.
            Everything is yummy from the Rockland Bakery.

            Great rolls, Bagels and wonderful breads. We had the olive bread last night, really wonderful...ENJOY

              Best Challah in Westchester is the Scarsdale Pastry Center on Weaver Street.

                  I recently bought a number of bakery goods at Heisler's Bakery on North Ave. in New Rochelle.

                  I had always remembered them as good, but their wares were 'very' good.

                  So, if someone needs a topnotch Kosher bakery in the Tristate area, I very highly recommend Heisler's.

                    Great pic, dolores! I second that! Heisler's is great - and worth the trip! I bought a challah and a delicious chocolate babka there. Excellent & very fresh - my Bubbie was very happy with both of them! :o)
