Sure, Seinfeld launched babka into popularity after its notorious episode, but Breads Bakery put it on the map—and into our thankful mouths—when it opened in Union Square six years ago. Today, its chocolaty, gooey rolls of joy are considered not only the best babkas around town, but also some of the best pastries, full stop. We’re excited to have its crowd favorite, alongside other flaky, buttery treats like croissants, strudels and chocolate chip cookies, here at the market. The baked goods are best relished with an espresso (pulled by expert baristas) or a cortado or a cappuccino—yadda, yadda, yadda.
Time Out Market New York, the best of the city under one roof is now open at 55 Water Street, Brooklyn.
