    Chef-owner Zohar Zohar creates a variety of homey cookies, sticky buns, babka, and rugelach, plus a lentil soup served with buttery potato knishes that you should not miss out on. Read more

    Stop by early in the morning, when the goods are freshest and you can linger in an old-fashioned window seat over a sweet and a cup of Stumptown coffee. Read more

    Cozy up at a window seat w/ a Stumptown brew and baked goods, particularly the dulce de leche cookie and lemon shortbread bar. Add a Zucker's halwa rose to the mix for an Israeli-esque bite.

    They make the best fruit cake made from dates, figs, apricots, and four different types of nuts called Love Load. It is the best fruit cake. And it's dairy-free (non-dairy) too!

    Another Middle Eastern-focused gem in East Village with limited tables. If you manage to grab a seat, it's a great place to chill. The hot toasted almond "rose" pastry out of the oven was fantastic.

    Cinnamon roll was tasty. Other, less typical rolls (date, chocolate, etc.) also looked good. Yogurt with homemade granola was excellent. Pleasant escape from the hubbub of the East Village.

    The Super Salad is the best salad I've had in the neighborhood, maybe the entire city. It's filling but not huge, so you just leave satisfied.

    The Homemade cookies and pastries at this Israeli East Village pastry shop/ café are moderately sweet providing artisanal delicacies where sugar doesn't override distinct flavors and spices Read more

    The East Village baker is stuffing its jelly donuts with actual meat, for a sweet-savory handheld treat. Powdered-sugar exterior and option for turkey/gravy or turkey/cranberry fillings.

    A cozy little cafe in East Village. Their Stumptown latte is nice to be enjoyed with alfajore. They have other Jewish pastries.

    Perfect place to pick up some yummy treats on your way to Tompkins sq park. Their date cookies are absolutely delicious and so is the avacado spread
