Help: need challah- downtown/eastside

  • r

Chow emergency: I need to get a loaf of OK-quality challah tonight, or tomorrow AM, to make turkey dressing on Saturday; we've moved our office downtown, so I'm no longer Fairfax-adjacent. Suggestions?

  1. I know it's not close but Schwartz's on Fairfax is open until 8pm I think.

    1. Try Langer's. You might try Brooklyn Bagel as well - although no guarentee.

      1. Noah's Bagels does a good challah but call first to make sure they have it, they're open in Pasadena and Larchmont early...also the in-store bakery at Gelson's in Pasadena...

        1. I just discovered that Los Angeles Baking Company, on Broadway in Lincoln Heights, will make challah with one day's notice, for $3.75. It's excellent! Very light and delicate, and very pretty, it is tasty plain and fabulous as French Toast.

          I told owner Ron how much we enjoyed it and he just smiled and said it's the best bread he makes. Why should I be surprised that a Nicaraguan baker in a Mexican / Chinese neighborhood bakes a great Jewish bread?
