I enjoyed this one immensely. Thanks to Tegan for asking: “Where can we get some good babka around here?!”

I replied: Call Your Mother has a babka muffin. Where’s your babka go to these days?

The early responses:

“Parkway Deli”

“I’ve heard from several people that Trader Joe’s apparently does indeed come from a bakery in Williamsburg”

“Manifest Bread Co. Check them out!”


“really want to try this Pandan babka from @Smallorchids at compassrosedc.com/la-bodega”

“Polka Deli and Kielbasa Factory both import from Northside Bakery in Brooklyn. Call ahead and place your order and they’ll throw an extra cherry cheese or chocolate or plain on the truck for you!”

“Got one at Giant during the High Holidays and stuck it in my freezer.”

“The babka from La Bodega Bakery (inside Compass Rose restaurant) is best I have ever had. Their insta account has pics”

“Trader Joe’s makes a chocolate babka that is not too shabby…though I’m not an authority by any means!!”

“Important update: Whole Foods still carries Green’s Babka (the best store-bought babka, for my money!) they just moved it from the bakery to the packaged cookie aisle!”

“bread furst has the best babka in dc!”
