        Russ and Daughters! Dean and Deluca carries good babka too (though I've only tried the chocolate one there)..

          OMG... how did I forget Russ and Daughters?
          Yes... the babkas are excellent there.

            Eli's has delicious babkas and the best chocolate Russian coffee cake (buy by the piece...you decide the size)

              Second Eli's. Especially the Russian coffee cake.

              Tasty --> http://www.elizabar.com/zabar/coffee-...

      2. greenberg's hands down- have had many a babka in new york and brooklyn. This one stands out head and shoulders above.
