    Chef-owner Zohar Zohar creates a variety of homey cookies, sticky buns, babka, and rugelach, plus a lentil soup served with buttery potato knishes that you should not miss out on. Read more

    Cozy up at a window seat w/ a Stumptown brew and baked goods, particularly the dulce de leche cookie and lemon shortbread bar. Add a Zucker's halwa rose to the mix for an Israeli-esque bite.

    Stop by early in the morning, when the goods are freshest and you can linger in an old-fashioned window seat over a sweet and a cup of Stumptown coffee. Read more

    They make the best fruit cake made from dates, figs, apricots, and four different types of nuts called Love Load. It is the best fruit cake. And it's dairy-free (non-dairy) too!

    The Super Salad is the best salad I've had in the neighborhood, maybe the entire city. It's filling but not huge, so you just leave satisfied.

    Another Middle Eastern-focused gem in East Village with limited tables. If you manage to grab a seat, it's a great place to chill. The hot toasted almond "rose" pastry out of the oven was fantastic.

    Cinnamon roll was tasty. Other, less typical rolls (date, chocolate, etc.) also looked good. Yogurt with homemade granola was excellent. Pleasant escape from the hubbub of the East Village.

    A cozy little cafe in East Village. Their Stumptown latte is nice to be enjoyed with alfajore. They have other Jewish pastries.

    The East Village baker is stuffing its jelly donuts with actual meat, for a sweet-savory handheld treat. Powdered-sugar exterior and option for turkey/gravy or turkey/cranberry fillings.

    The roses (cinnamon raisin buns!) are unreal. That and a soy latte- the perfect Sunday morning. Don't worry about cash only, they have Square.

    It's like the tiny Jewish bakery version of Chocolaterie Maya (yes, from the movie). Simple, classic, and absolutely lovely.
