challah or brioche in msp
I need one or the other for a baked french toast recipe I'm making tonight for a brunch tomorrow. Who makes good versions of these around these parts? I'm in south Minneapolis.
I would go to Rustica. I have not had their brioche, but I think people rave about the bostock which I believe is based on it.
Try Rustica and Breadsmith for challah (Rustica may have brioche as well). They are good versions. Lund's and Byerly's have decent versions of challah in a pinch. Turtle Bread probably has good brioche, but their challah is way too crusty for my taste. Fishman's is the best, for future reference, but they are not open today as it's Shabbat.

I've had good Challah at Breadsmith in St Paul. You can call and reserve a loaf if needed - sometimes they sell out.
Thanks, everyone! I bought brioche at Turtle Bread on Chicago and can report back that it is lovely!
