From our Oven
Flavored with coffee and rolled in coconut flakes – these are energy balls of chocolate and the coffee will wake you up to the joy of life.
Very thin layers of hand rolled dough spiced with cinnamon and clove – another world wonder from my dear Sima who inspired me so much through the years. These will melt in your mouth and are great with coffee, or some say even better with tea..
Some call this little wonder a “sticky bun” while in other parts of the globe it’s known as a “cinnamon roll”. Actually, they are my mother-in-law’s “Shoshanim”, or in English – Roses. This recipe was genuinely passed mother-to-daughter in my husband’s family from Eastern Europe back to Israel and now here to New York City.
The chocolate rose is the original, and the others – Dates & Halva and Almond & Brown Sugar (available only on weekends) are Zucker Bakery’s twist for a new edge and new ﬂavors – served as a morning snack, but works any time of the day. Have it with your favorite coffee, tea or wine.
My own style, with dates, almonds and clove. Can’t resist the crispy dough and soft and scented date ﬁlling – so very light and tasty.
Crumbly and zesty. The good lemon ﬂavor hand made all natural from the real fruit of the earth.
Our babka is like a large version of our chocolate roses. As a loaf, it lasts longer and can also be sliced and frozen for continuous pleasure!
A Dulce De Lec’he-ﬁlled cookie sandwich rolled in coconut ﬂakes. Impossible to otherwise describe in words!!! This dream cookie’s secret family recipe was given to me by dear Sima – a gifted baker, amazing person and the mother of our good friend.
Mixed dry fruits & nuts. With lots of love!!! From my dear mother’s oven. I remember this wonderful ﬂavor and love ﬁlls my heart when I bite the thin-sliced energy-ﬁlled Love Loaf. (Great with cheese and wine).
Chewy and sweet with a kick. Originally served for the Jewish New Year’s (“Rosh Hashanah”) to symbolize a sweet and healthy new year. We think these cookies’ wonder should be celebrated daily.
Honey Almond Fingers
Crumbly honey and almond dough rolled in powder sugar – just so good and sweet!

About the Bakery
About the Bakery
Zucker Bakery, a specialty, small-batch bakery cafe in the heart of New York City’s East Village. Here, you’ll find uniquely spiced cookies that just might surprise you; cookies that make you feel like you’ve traveled – with flavors and spices that hint of other countries.
We are a home-style bakery serving hand made cookies and sticky buns (that we call Roses). All baking is done fresh in our oven. Eat in our living-room style seating or take out. Enjoy coffee and espresso by our expert baristas using fresh Stumptown coffee, special teas and hot chocolate.
Established in 2011. Owner chef Zohar Zohar took a long break from the kitchen and the ovens to raise her sweet kids, after working for many years in top NYC restaurants for famous chefs, Daniel Boulud, David Bouley and friend pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini who also inspired her deserts and style. In her new venture Zucker Bakery – a family owned home-style bakery and coffee shop – Zohar bakes her one-of-a-kind cookies and sticky buns known as Roses. Mrs. Zohar’s baking is influenced by her Israeli family and friends of European and Moroccan backgrounds.
“I try to keep the homey feeling of my grandmother’s house and hope to touch some people’s nostalgic memories through the cookies’ taste and the design of the shop, while keeping my fine details and quality” – Zohar Zohar
