130 Cypress Street, Providence
You can expect some traditional Jewish fare at Oak Bakeshop, but that’s certainly not all. Their chuckle-inducing tagline states that they’re a “Jew-ish” bakery, with “Some Jewish things, some not Jewish things … but mostly just figuring it out.” We get it.
The bakery itself sits atop a small hill and feels like a beacon of comfort with welcoming large windows and a cozy, colorful interior. Settle in at the high-top window seating with your coffee and laptop, or mingle at the long center table with other patrons as you await your to-go order.
Offerings change daily with some Jewish menu items (Jerusalem bagels, rugelach, babka and more), a few Kosher items (chocolate chip cookies, rainbow cooking, Mandel bread, challah and more) and a selection of other goodies like peanut butter and jelly cookies, quiche and savory scones.
Have a look over their merch section where you’ll find plenty of pick-me-ups from t-shirts to mugs and candles.
Our suggestion: When it’s available, don’t miss the coffee cake.
