Description: BREADS BAKERY™ is a New York bakery dedicated to producing artisanal, handmade breads using traditional baking techniques. Most of the artisan breads we bake are made with whole grains and go through a slow proofing process, which sharpens and improves the taste. A lot of thought has been given to the components of the bread, types of flour and the addition of seeds and grains which increase the nutritional value. We select only the finest ingredients and, when possible, use natural and organic ingredients. The bakery bakes both sweet and savory items including rustic breads and pastries and our famous BREADS BAKERY BABKA™. It fills us with satisfaction to feed and to host. Much thought is put into this - making it comfortable, pleasant, appetizing, aromatic, satisfying and abundant. We let our work speak for itself.

Great New York experience this bakery has very good bread and pastries. The baked items always seem fresh and are full of filling. They offer a “happy hour” with reduced priced coffee before a certain time. Worth the visit.

So we tried the babka and it was very good. Was it the best I’ve ever had? NO. Was it the most expensive, YES . $14.95 Was it the smallest , YES.
Also tried the cranberry nut bread which was very good, $7.95
So while the products are very good, expect to pay for it at NYC rates.

We use high-quality ingredients to make sure that we make delicious baked goods, Allan. Our customers often compliment us on our chocolate babka and other products, so we don't want to compromise on the quality of our ingredients.

I hope you can give us another chance,

This is an excellent bakery near Union Square. I stopped in for coffee and an almond croissant - flaky, crisp, and almondy-good! (It reminded me a bit of the croissant in Arcade bakery in NYC - this is a good thing! Breads was lighter and a little smaller)
A friendly staff person gave out sample of carrot cake, and of coconut chocolate bread. Both were moist and very flavorful - excellent tea cake.
Definite recommend!!
PS: troop maneuvers: If you want to eat pastry and coffee there, you select your pastry, go to the bakery counter and order and pay for the coffee there as well. Then you pick up your coffee coffee at the counter in back.

Took coffe in the cafe bar and a fig and chevre plus a gravlax and tomato sandwhich. Ryebread very tasty. Quality overall v. good.

On the way in you pass the bakery part. Looks excellent.

Lack of staff among the tables mean dirty tables with remains of prevoius guest. Owner need to drive staff harder. Some look unfocused, if the idea is to have someone doing the tables, it does not work.

Apart from that minor thing a very nice experince. Price/quality good.
