  1. oops...


    Gertel's closed on the LES in NYC a while ago (RIP...) and I know they deliver their challahs to 72nd St. Bagel on the westside, but does anyone know if they deliver to a neighborhood bakery or market on the upper east side??

    I can't justify paying $9 for a challah at Eli's!!

      I don't know about Gertel's, but you can get a Beigel's challlah at C-town (92nd & 2nd Ave) for about $2.99.

        I think they deliver to Park East Butcher on 84th and 2nd - if not, just ask the owner (Murray) about ordering from Gertel's. He is very accomodating.

          Gertels supplies all the pastries and challahs for Avi and Davids on 3rd ave b/t 61 and 62

        2. Thanks so much!

          I've been avoiding Park East b/c it's a hassle w/ my kid's stroller, but I can swing by there w/o it. i'll check out c-town too... fairway has beigel's, we used to get them when we lived on the UWS.

          Thanks for the tips everyone!

          1. If you're willing to eat a mass produced challah, check out Jack's 99 cent store on 32 bet 6th and 7th Ave.

              Is the Challah 99 cents? What hechsher? What brand? Thanks!

                Yes, it's 99 cents. Available usually Thursday afternoons. There are two hashgachot OU and a chassidish one. They same brand all has challah rolls, onion rolls, and the large sesame circles. Not the tastiest challah, but for 99 cents...also good for french toast.
