100 years of family baking. A piece of history with the best danish pastry in the world. A rare family business in London that combines traditional dishes with the new Crodoughs. Well worth a visit.

Rinkoff's deli on Vallance street is a great little place with a huge list of bagel fillings and a nice spread of crodoughs to ensure you're suitably carb-filled by the time you leave. Steeped in history, the bakery has not lost sight of it's heritage with published articles on the walls and free copies of the Jewish news to read or take away.

There are a few bar stools to hop onto whilst you chow down on freshly baked bagels (dare I say to rival those found on Brick Lane) crammed with whatever takes your fancy from the fresh deli fillings. I opted to take my crodoughs away to ensure responsible carb consumption but my goodness, what a treat. Sweet, generous in size and absolutely delicious. They are worth the wait. I recommend visiting the deli for a quieter experience otherwise the Jubilee Street shop has a much larger range for bulk buying!

Wow wow wow, if you never had a crodough before you are going to be in for a treat. The Crodough is an American import which brings out the best in the croissant and the doughnut. The pastry is fried like a doughnut to give extra height and a layered effect. The Crodough is then filled with delicious flavours such as custard, salted caramel and chocolate. My favourite was the S'mores, Nutella and Marshmallows. At 600 calories it's definitely a treat. Be warned they are best shared or you could end up being seriously full and with a sugar high.

This small, family-run bakery is an East end classic. Caching in on some hipster trends, such as rainbow bagels, they have managed to stay relevant and still appeal to their more traditional audience.

As they are on Deliveroo, it is a very cheap and convenient option for lunch at work. Quite a few team lunches and meetings have been fuelled by Rinkoff, which is always fresh and delicious. Importantly, they aren't stingy on the filling ;) 

Great to keep in the fridge for the next day too.

Rinkoffs has gone from better to bestest! The Stepney Green bakery is crammed with goodies sweet and savoury and the numerous tables outside attract a constant flow of appreciative customers, especially weekends. The building has transformed a rather ordinary square just off the Mile End road into a haven for
a break from the busy surroundings.

Original and friendly. Prices are conserved, they have many varieties of bakery and the crodoughs are delicious!

Historic bakery with the best cakes, treats and coffee - from instagramable rainbow bagels to loaves your nan would happily snap up. Well worth a detour.

This glorious bakery is steeped in history, renowned locally as one of the greatest bakeries in all of London. They make the most delicious treats and hand craft incredible bread creations. They make a mean coffee too. We've lived in the area for around six years and Rinkoffs has always been a weekend tradition. Long may it continue!


On the surface this does not seem like a place worth visiting, it's hidden in the middle of council flats, and looks like a generic bakery. However, that could not be further from the case..if you take yourself seriously as someone with a sweet tooth, make the trip to this place. The breads are fantastic but the sweet stuff is something else. Even just for the novelty, I highly recommend the Croughnuts.


Recently visited this bakery which I've heard so much of. They got my attention with their rainbow bagels which i got to try in New York before. It is a little off the beaten path but once you're there, you can't resist to try many different baked goods like crodoughs or cakes. You can smell the history in this place. Their challah bread would be perfect for French Toasts. Wish they had a more central location.


Rinkoff´s is just amazing! It´s an old family run business and such an undiscovered gem. I love the sourdough bread, crodoughs, and cheesecake.

When the weather is good, get a coffee and sit outside. It´s not particularly pretty sitting in the middle of council houses in Whitechapel, but it will feel like time is standing still for a few moments,

Whoop - I'm the first to review this lovely east-end gem. That gives me some joy and some sadness at the same time because everybody with a sweet tooth should make the trek to this spot for a tasty treat. This family run business has for generations been making the good stuff - bread, doughnuts, cakes and the rest. They have a wholesale side to the business but you can also go into the shop and it's that wonderful smell that hits you when you walk in that reminds you of everything good in the world. The shop isn't fancy, and I don't recall there's anywhere to sit. It's a little hard to find but go against your instinct - it's under the archway in the middle of a council estate building - and it's bloody fabulous.
