BEST KNISH IN NYC – Yelp, Trip Advisor

Classic Kosher Gourmet Food

Yonah Schimmel has been serving knishes, kugel, latke as well as classic New York drinks like Egg Creams and Lime Rickeys since 1910. Located in the historic Lower East Side, Yonah Schimmel Knish Bakery is a slice of historic New York that’s becoming more and more rare.

Stop in today at 137 East Houston Street in New York City or order our world famous knishes online with free shipping in the USA.

  Order arrived as expected, delicious variety. Sweet potato very good, the others were excellent. They actually differed from the potato knishes I get locally (Yonah is closer to traditional).
Directions on warming them up and storage were thorough and accurate.

  If you have never had knishes delivered by dumbwaiter, with mustard as garnish and tea as hydration... and you know from Houston... get to Yona Schimmel's already
