Continental Kosher Bakery

Nestled on the border of Valley Village and North Hollywood, Continental Kosher Bakery comes with the airiest dough. So for those of you who crave the burst of air and powdered sugar at the first bite of a raspberry sufganiyot, Continental is your go-to spot.

They are happy to customize the sufganiyot orders, as long as you’re good with the three-dozen minimum. You can mix and match the flavors of the dozen but can’t mix and match within the dozen. It’s not a sit-down spot, but one minute inside Continental and you’ll see the demand is way too high to pre-order just a few. Specialty options include sugar-free, no filling and mini sufganiyot. The original bakery started in Harlem about 100 years ago, and the family business is still strong today.

Unique Pastry

There is so much filling in Unique’s sufganiyot. But don’t use any napkins, you’ll want to savor every drop of the filling. Be sure to try the Boston cream pie flavor. When entering, you know the place is going to be great when half of their tables are temporary queuing space for (in our observation) at least 100 sufganiyot pre-orders. Also, try the potato bourekas.

Unique originally opened in Northridge in 1989, and is now located in Tarzana square. One customer, artist Paulette de Le’Herbe, told the Journal that she has been coming to Unique for over 30 years—for the food, the ambiance and as a peaceful place to do her paintings. She added that owner Irit Stein is “extremely humble and always ready to help others.” The name is Unique, but it will leave you wishing that every cafe were like this friendly spot in Tarzana.
