Williamsburg Heimishe Bakery by Oneg is the new incarnation of Oneg Bakery.

We changed our name - not our traditional recipes - and with our new partners, continue to run this classic Jewish bakery in our neighborhood of South Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Our grandmothers emigrated to Brooklyn after surviving World War II in Hungary. They brought with them their recipes and their dreams to open a bakery. After many years of everyone raving about their recipes, their children and grandchildren eventually persuaded them to open a bakery and now run it today.

We are an CRC Kosher bakery.

 The Absolute Best Babka in New York  “Deep in the heart of Hasidic Williamsburg, this nondescript bakery churns out New York’s most distinctive chocolate babka — sticky as tar; dense with rivulets of wet, fudgy chocolate; heavy as a cinder block and sold by weight. There is nothing subtle about this thing, but you have to admire its sheer audacity — not to mention its fudgy texture and crisp, sugar-crumbed, cookielike crust.”

 The Best Chocolate Babka in NYC, 2015 Edition  “One look at the intricate, impossible-to-count folds of dough and chocolate in this babka tell you right away that Oneg Heimishe is the real deal. A kosher bakery popular with South Williamsburg's Hasidic population, Oneg continues to make the heaviest and densest babka on our list. There's a big emphasis on dark, sweet chocolate, which dominates the loaf's flavor, but the overall texture is great—not too heavy. The shiny top is free of streusel and has a pleasant crispness. Some of the innermost layers of dough can get a bit undercooked, but for some people I recognize that's a feature, not a bug. Order it by the pound; the full uncut babka is the length of three standard loaves of bread.”
