Rye Bread Long Island

Anyone know where to get good, Jewish Bakery Style Rye Bread on Long Island? I'm in western Suffolk but will travel for a great loaf
Thanks for any help

  1. Everything I've had from Reinwald's (Huntington) has been very good. I think I'll get there in the next few days for an Irish Soda and a Rye Bread. Not sure if it's Jewish Bakery Style.

      As a fan of Jewish Rye myself, I'd be particularly interested if it is seedless and without the flavouring or seasoning that smells and tastes like the seeds. Thanks!

      1. re: Gastronomos

        I do like the caraway seeds version, and always get Rye with them. I guess if you chose seedless, it wouldn't have that flavor.

        1. re: MacTAC

          That's what I always knew. Until one day when I got seedless rye and it had "ground caraway seed" in it.
          Why would someone do that? I don't know.

          And Reinwald's (Huntington) is a good bakery. I picked up a Soda Bread. They had only "with raisins" and that was just fine.

        As luck would have it, I heading up to Huntington today. Thanks for the tip. Think I'll try the Soda Bread too.

          You're quite welcome, I'm hoping to get there tomorrow or Monday.

          1. re: MacTAC

            I went up on Friday, The Rye Bread, was very good. I also tried two little cakes/ pastries, a Caramel Cheesecake and a Chocolate Mousse cake. Both were excellent
            So Thanks again for the recommendation.

              Thanks for the report back! Looking forward now to getting there again.

      3. Country Boy Bakery in Long Beach. It's a schlep from Suffolk but worth it.

          One thing I can't quite tell from the website is what they actually make there: perhaps the majority of bakeries are coy about the "baked on premises" label, in that they *bake* on the premises dough or batter *made* in a supplier's factory.

        2. Walls Bakery Hewlitt Corn rye , Bobka,Pumpernickel etc.

            Oohh Corn Rye, I haven't had that in years. I'll be checking this bakery out for sure. Anything else, beside the breads, that you recommend? That Philly Fluff thing looks interesting. Have you had it?

              I stopped eating cakes and donuts etc .....but my wife and family said the cakes are to die for.

          2. Steinbergs in Oceanside has great Rye.

            1. I bought a Jewish Rye Bread at Whole Foods and was pleasantly surprised!
