Polish bakery in Yonkers, NY

kjcinny1 Dec 12, 2011 04:36 AM

Hi everyone,

My family and I are trying to figure out if there are any Polish bakeries left in Yonkers. When I was a kid (and when my mom was a kid!), we all bought our communion cakes (with the host on top) from a Polish bakery but none of us can remember the name. The reason I'm asking is that I need to order an old fashioned birthday cake in a few weeks, but I don't like any of the bakeries in Westchester (Lulus, Pastry Corner, Riviera, etc.)

Any suggestions are much appreciated!

      I was there once, it looked to me as if they use commercial cakes and pastries, in fact their cheese cake is from Sysco. I have friends who shop at a bakery in Greenpoint Brooklyn when family visits from Poland.

      Chantilly is a new bakery in Bronxville on Parkway Road opposite the train station. You might find what you want there.

      In my experience, the cakes from Riviera that have come out of the refrigerator case can sometimes have an off taste. However, anytime I have ordered a custom cake fromt there, it has been excellent.
