Karsh’s Bakery

At Karsh’s Bakery, a knife won’t come near your bread until you order it—point-of-sale slicing keeps loaves as fresh as possible. It’s exactly that sort of dedication to quality that has kept Karsh’s in business for more than 50 years. In fact, since the business opened in the 1960s, not much has changed, at least not when it comes to the friendly service or the kosher baked goods. Locals flock to Karsh's for the rye bread, which comes in several varieties, including seeded, unseeded, and marbled. Behind the counter, staff box kaiser rolls, crescent rolls, and bagels 13 to the dozen, and top party trays with treats such as scones, napoleons, cookies, rugalach, and eclairs. Of course, the bakers always keep a number of fresh-baked, 7", german chocolate, carrot, and raspberry delight cakes on hand for impromptu celebrations and food fights, while custom cakes can be ordered to help mark a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or other special occasion.
