Taste the Difference of Our Bagels and Bialys

We Bake Delicious Specialty Products

Kossar's Bakery & Bialys

Handcrafted and Traditional Baked Goods

Kossar’s offers legendary bagels & bialys as well as specialty baked goods. You can taste the tradition.

Offering Fresh Bialys and Bagels

We have been making our bialys for over 85 years. And along the way we've perfected our bagel recipes. We like to think of them as loving, kind of awkward cousins in the Kossar family of finely crafted baked goods. We bake to perfection and ensure that each product is at its freshest.

What is Bialy?

The word “bialy” is a shortened version of Bialystoker Kuchen, which in Yiddish means, “little bread from Bialystok.” If you don’t know what this is, don’t feel bad. 9.5 out of 10 people have no idea either. Learn more about this delicious bread.

Some of our Ingredients

In baking our goods, we only use the highest quality ingredients such as:

  • Natural Wheat Flour
  • Fresh Eggs
  • Premium Brewer’s Yeast
  • Fine Kosher Salt
  • Pure Malt Syrup

We also use a not-so-secret element in completing our product, the good old New York City tap water. With these ingredients, we craft a delicious set of baked goods.

Old-World Baked Goods Require an Old-World Work Ethic

Crafting a celebrated brand needs hard work, perseverance, and love. We have been improving our recipe and quality of service for generations.

Celebrating A Community

We make exceptional bagels, bialys, and baked goods as a way to contribute to our community in the iconic Lower East Side of Manhattan. We celebrate a diverse culture that’s an irreplaceable element of the American story.
