However You Slice It...

Eli’s Bread has been considered the best for over 30 years. In the 1980s, Eli Zabar conceived of a platonic ideal of the loaves he was looking for—one with lots of crust, a sour taste like a Jewish corn rye, and a tight texture. An odyssey began as Eli worked to understand what made a great loaf, and then worked even harder to learn to make them himself. Today, Eli’s Bread is still made using the same original recipes adored all over the world.


Become a Customer

Eli’s Bread produces over 200 hearth-baked breads, rolls, focaccias and bagels daily, from 40,000 lbs. of dough, for wholesale accounts all over the tri-state area. Based on traditional European recipes, incorporating only natural starters and leavenings, Eli’s Bread is baked twice a day for AM and PM deliveries. A separate bakery produces certified kosher breads, while 100% gluten-free products, produced in a 100% gluten-free kitchen, is also available.


A Sweet Story

Eli Zabar has long been known for his commitment to quality and freshness. The Pastry Program at Eli’s Bread maintains those standards. This is an all-butter, from-scratch bakery delivering freshly baked muffins, cookies, pound cakes, coffee cakes, and Viennoiserie. Traditional Holiday pastries are a specialty, and also available seasonally.
