Absolutely phenomenal knishes. MY comfort food and this place is the best. My staple potato and kasha are loaded with a great dough surrounding and also GREAT is the mushroom.
For sweet the cheese knish is delish too.
You can’t go wrong here. Worth every...penny.More
My Favorite 1 thing great bakery. They have and only do 1 thing great! Traditional ole school Knish. My favorites are the blueberry cheese and the Mushroom. a small storefront serving these old treats done in the traditional way. Reasonable and consistent pricing in the...heart of the lower eastside at the 2nd Have F train stop.More

This is no ordinary knish and this is no ordinary place. It's sort of a hole in the wall hidden gem with huge tasty knishes. We ordered the original (potato) and the spinach knish and ate them while walking the streets of NYC. There are...a few tables for eating in and the walls are covered with old photos and paraphernalia to enjoy. I would definitely recommend stopping in for a good old knish better than what mama used to make.More
The ultimate NY snack is a potato knish, shared with a friend. We had walked from the Whitney to the LES and decided it was time to rest our feet and feed our souls.
My college roomie and I had a potato knish, some club...soda and some great nostalgia for the LES, left restored, stomach and soul. (took an extra one for lunch today and it was great!)More
Traditional Jewish fayre as a handy pitstop in the Bowery district.
I had never heard of a Knish, but was I glad we stopped at this cafe/restaurant after seeing them displayed in the window sparked our interest.
We tried a Cherry and a Chocolate Knish,...sweet, soft cheese and soft thin crust. So much flavour and really fills you up, great value at $4 each. Real hidden gem. RecommendedMore
This is a teeny tiny shop that has been around since 1910. What do they make? Only the finest traditional knish is a wicked amount of sweet and savoury flavours. Sit in one of the rickety chairs and have it warm or if you are...lucky enough to live near take a mess of them home. The place is loaded with photos and steeped in history. This is a walk backwards in time. Truly such a gift it is still here.

Hey guys, I'm Yonah's social media manager. At this time, there are no gluten-free knishes. It's a priority and the staff and owners are working on it to make them as delicious as the ones the shop has been serving for nearly 110 years.
Which synagogue is the event at?

A knish is basically a ball of mashed potatoes surrounded by a thin layer of dough. It can be baked or fried with different vegetables mixed into the filling. Knishes gained popularity with immigrants in New York as a cheap yet filling way to make two fairly basic, inexpensive foods into something more exciting. And nothing has changed since. To this day, Yonah Schimmel’s uses the same recipe that the Romanian Rabbi Schimmel served from his street cart in 1890. Oh, and it’s vegan.
