Zona - I just moved to Manville area and was looking for a Polish deli and bakery. I tried B&L, and I could see how fast the rye moves out, but I am looking for a bakery that does their own babka. Any suggestions? [prob should just learn to make it myself]
Moved from Bayonne, NJ. Two places I went to there:
Alex & Terri's on 36th St and Broadway. Small deli/bakery, few groceries, but has smoked meats, makes own pierogis, poppy/nut/prune breads [what is the Polish word for these?], and babka. Close to Easter they suspend other deli activity to focus on making enough babka, there can be a line out the door.
The other one is between 22nd and 24th on Ave. C. Forget the name. A bigger deli and grocery.
