Good Kosher bakery in the Valley
I need to bring in cupcakes for an event at my daughter's synagogue this Friday. The baked goods need to be from a Kosher bakery. I know there are several on Burbank Boulevard in North Hollywood (but can go anywhere in the Valley).
Does anyone have any recommendations on a good one? I'm looking for both chocolate and non-chocolate varieties. Also looking for a "treat" that's non-dairy for those lactose intolerant kids.
You might also post this in the Kosher Chowhound board - I know there are a number of kosher chowhound members from LA who would be able to recommend kosher bakeries -
Most kosher bakeries will also have non-dairy treats available perfect for lactose intolerant kids -
In Woodland Hills there is Renaissance Bakery, which makes the cookies that are carried in supermarkets around the valley (Ralphs, anyway).
But here is a cute web site: http://traveljew.com/tjWestCoastKoshe...
And here is their list of kosher bakeries in the valley - some closer to you than Renaissance, but I leave it up to you to call and find out if they still exist:
