Knishes - SF or Shipped

I'm looking for a supply of potato-onion knishes, round or flat, either in SF or somewhere where shipping wouldn't be prohibitive. Frozen is OK. Zabar's in NYC ships, but they require overnight shipping on knishes. For a dozen knishes, that's $55.00 in shipping.

I'm in Walnut Creek, but am house-bound, which makes shipping attractive. As an alternative, my son could pick some up in SF or the East Bay on his trips to WCk.

A few of the local bagel shops used to carry them, but no longer.

Any ideas?

  1. An only as last resort check Costco. I believe they were Gabila's, big but bland.

            Yes, they have frozen knishes. They're pretty good. The kitchen table in mountainview has a knish of the day each day, but you never know what the flavor will be.

          2. If you have a House of Bagels out there, they carry knishes....probably Saul's as well in Berkeley....good luck...
