Where to find Chocolate Babka ?

My sister has arrived in LA and is looking for some chocolate babka comparable to Dean and Deluca. Looking for a place near west LA. Thanks.

  1. They haven't been the same since they've been sold, but I'd give Beverlywood Bakery a call.

    And always good - but often sold out on many things - Diamond Bakery on Fairfax.

    If it must be pure westside - then call Victor Bene's bakery (stand alone or in a gelsons) and ask.

      Canters Deli has a bakery that makes a fantastic babka. Also Bea's Bakers in Tarzana should have it but I would call first to be sure.

      Canters is at 419 Fairfax at Oakwood St
      Beas is at 18450 Clark (Reseda and Ventura Blvd) 818-344-0100

        i second BEAS. Truly awesome. i drive from Koreatown for it.

    2. Does it have to be the loaf style like D&D and Zabar's or can it be the ring type? Delicious Bakery in Northridge has a chocolate chip babka good enough that family from out of town asks us to bring them one when visiting. It is kosher; I believe the babkas from D&D and Zabar's are, too.
