  Old world knishes since 1910. Best in the city. Soft like a pillow, same recipe since the day they opened.

  This is such a great spot. Hit up Yonah Shimmel's for some real authentic knishes! We tried 3 flavors, the classic potato, spinach, and one of the specials which was cheddar jalapeño - everything was delicious!

The staff were super friendly. This is a great hole-in-the-wall LES classic spot.

  Been going here for many years and the quality is still superb. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that their knishes have shrunk in recent times. It's a real pet peeve when any establishment does this. Other than that, I still love them.

I just have 1 special request - Please bring them back to their original size even if you have to charge slightly more. It's understandable during these challenging economic times.
