Challah in Denver?

Where can I buy good challah bread in Denver?

  1. There is a Jewish bakery on Monaco Street a few blocks south of Leetsdale. It's in the same shopping center as Hobby Lobby and Baby World (East side of the street). I've never had the challah, but have had other goodies from there that were all terrific. Also, as far as I know, it's the only place to get bialys in Denver.

      That's really good to know. Thanks Megiac!

        That is the "Bagel Bakery", and where I would recommend. Their Challah is top notch, and before Jewish holidays, it is a mad scramble to grab their loafs before the other Yenta's grab them (which is half the fun).

        Bagel Store
        942 S Monaco Pkwy, Denver, CO

      2. Ok, deep breath and disclaimer-- it's not necessarily "good", but in a pinch to satisfy cravings, there are Udi's and Panera. (I'm leaving now)

        1. If you go to the Bagel Bakery on Monaco, as mentioned above, you can also buy the dough. Just proof and home and bake for fresh warm challah.

          I've also had whole food's challah which is not bad.

          1. I can't add any more places to buy challah to those mentioned, but I did spot a piece w/ recipe in the NY Times the other day. Of course, it would have to be converted for elevation, but ambitious bakers can see
