    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!

        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.

          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.

            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.

          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.

            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?
