I have been going to Cohen's for years. Until recently I always found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. The last two times I went, though, I dealt with a woman who said she is the owner. She is dour, unsmiling and was...nasty and dismissive when I was shocked when I was charged $18 for two bags of pumpernickel that took from the counter. I'd always paid $4 for previously for what I thought was day old bread. Today I had a coupon that printed out this morning from the AARP website. She would not accept it and treated me like I was trying to steal from her. It's too bad. I like the bakery. If you're going to take ownership of a community institution don't treat customers like your enemy.More

Fresh and delicious options here. It was clean and felt like a nyc bakery. The staff needs more customer service training to explain dessert & coffee options. The chocolate poppyseed danish was recommended and the chocolate raisin prune one.. we opted for the poppyseed one...and it was different but delicious. The Apple turnover was very fresh with an ample amount of Apple slices. We would definitely return.More

I drive an hour to get to this bakery and my last visit the line was out the door. The baked goods are excellent! The best in Sullivan and Orange County. Please ignore the extreme racist comment below. The person is obviously biased. It is...a busy place.More

I felt it important to comment because the last reviewer made comments I thought were unfair. Yes, the place is run and serviced now by Latinos, I see no reason to state that they are illegals. At any rate, our server was very sweet and...personable, They all work together to make it run efficiently. Our Cubanos were Huge and a nice serving size of Onion rings. My son had a side salad, also huge and loaded with healthy veggies. The Potato salad was too eggy for us and expensive by the pound. Desserts brought home were also delish and fair priced. Raisin pumpernickel, was only fair, (very few raisins) and the reason we went there. I would go back-but would not get the raison pumpernickel strangely enoughMore

My wife and I took a trip up Ellenville and other towns in that area so I can relive some of my childhood memories of spending summers here. The bakery has been there for about 100 years, but only the last few years have they...expanded into a restaurant too, with seating both inside and outside. It was a nice summer day, so we ate our lunch outside. The food was delicious and for dessert, we shared a tiramisu, which was also excellent. Next time we come back to Ellenville, will definitely eat there again.More

I try to stop here whenever I am in Ellenville - I love the choices of baked goods including breads. Excellent rye bread, and hamentashin. Lots lots lots of choices. I was excited today to see tres leches cake which I love. However, this was...not tres leches as I know it. A cake, not with the milky substance I expected.More

Cohen's Bakery has the most amazing selection of pastries, and a wonderful selection of Old World breads, especially their Raisin pumpernickel! It is also great to be able to sit down and have your cake and eat it right there with a cup of coffee!
