Towards the end of the week, you can also pick up their excellent challah. The last loaf available on the day I stopped by was whole wheat, and I was wary—but there was no negative impact from the switch to a healthier grain. In fact, the flour added another level of flavor to an already moist and rich loaf. With great pull and a somewhat firm crust, this is a challah that makes a statement. And when I peeked at the half-eaten loaf again a few days later, it was still moist and delicious—a sign of a truly well-made eggy bread.
