Challah in Portland, Maine

We are being married in Portland in June. Our venue has allowed us an exception to the "no outdside food" to bring in our own challah. Since we are pretty new to the area, we have not found the best bakery for a challah. Hopefully we can get a large one (serving 50 people) as a special order. I would be so appreciative of any ideas of who we should look into (or avoid for that matter). Thanks in advance!

      Hi Cheryl,

      Thanks! Is that a store or a website?

    2. There is NO GOOD CHALLAH in Portland....
      You will need to get the Challah out of Boston, or Bagel Central in Bangor.

      1. You can also try
        They offer several types of challah and will ship challah nationwide.
        They have very large challahs available, if you contact them.

          Being that cheesecake got married in June, I doubt it's an issue any more.
