Challah in Providence?

Where's the best in Providence? I'm not thrilled with what I'm finding at East Side Market. Any recommendations?

  1. I haven't tried them, but the challahs at Seven Stars look perfect. They only sell them on fridays.

    1. i was just going to post this question myself...i will definitely try seven stars.

      1. i tried the challah at seven stars and was not impressed. the outside was too crusty, the inside not very soft, and the whole thing tasted more yeasty than sweet. it tasted better dunked in some soup but i don't think ill be buying it again.

        1. I make my own challah from a recipe in the Gourmet cookbook. Its very easy (apart from the braiding which I usually skip). Check out the book or the website for the recipe and give it a try.

          1. I agree with tomatosoup re: seven stars challah. Its good bread, but its just not challah.

            Believe it or not, I actually really like the challah at whole foods. Very soft, doughy. and tasty. I believe it's also only sold on fridays (and the rest of the weekend if there are leftovers).
