Grand Bakery is a storied food institution that brings delicious, traditionally Jewish goods to a broad and diverse community. We've been baking in Oakland since 1959, and after a brief hiatus, we've rolled up our sleeves once more, and are back in action.

Today, we have transitioned Grand Bakery to a wholesale business. We sell our challah and other baked goods to stores, schools, and institutions throughout the Bay Area — so you can get Grand Bakery products no matter where you live. We also cater special orders and deliver to schools and community centers.

Whether you grew up on Grand Bakery, or are new and curious what this challah-bread is all about, we're thrilled to serve you.

Grand Bakery makes high-quality, handcrafted kosher baked goods for the Bay Area community. We specialize in challah, a braided egg bread similar to brioche, honey cakes, a moist spiced loaf, and Hamentashen, a jam-filled shortbread cookie. We also make a mean Russian Tea cookie, delicious almond logs, and the best chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons you've ever had. Find us all over the Bay.

Want something special? Get in touch and we'll see what we can do to make your baked good dreams come true.


Grand Bakery's production bakery is co-located above the Food Mill at 3033 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland.

You can find Grand Bakery products at grocery stores, schools, synagogues, and delis throughout the Bay Area.

Opened originally in 1959 as the New Yorker Bakery, Grand Bakery has evolved many times in its 50+ year history. Bob Jaffe took the helm of the iconic institution in 1998 and steered the bakery with a warm smile and a grateful spirit for 18 years.

In 2017, New York-native Sam Tobis bought Grand Bakery and took a hard tac — parting ways with the original storefront, while maintaining all other aspects of the business. In this latest evolution, Grand Bakery has become a wholesale and special-order bakery, now serving our community around the Bay once again.

We have the same bakers, the same challah, working in a new location, serving you with the same spirit you've always loved.

Grand Bakery's mission is enable bring people to gather around food and ritual. We deliver kosher goods to communities all over the Bay Area, and foster friendships between people of all walks of life.
