  Cool blast of LES history.  Knishes are great.  They are an occasional treat and great to share with others.   It used to be reasonable to ship them but now it is not.  Only get them when in NYC.

  Received a 6 pack by gold belly. Brought back lots of memories. Delicious even frozen.

  This was a fun shop to visit during our walk around the Lower East Side. We were there late in the day so unfortunately a lot of their options were sold out; recommend going earlier in the day if you want more variety. We got the basic potato Knishes and they were warm and very flavorful.
