image1_20_1_.0

Orwashers Bakery, a century-old mainstay on the UWS, will open their second location TODAY at 440 Amsterdam Ave at 81st Street.

The bakery known for its “quintessential Upper West Side” breads such as Pumpernickel and New York Rye was opened by The Orwashers – a Hungerian immigrant family – in 1916  looking to serve decades of family recipes to the Upper East Side’s local immigrant community

In 2008, the Orwasher family sold the bakery to its current owner Keith Cohen, who expanded the company’s wholesale business. Today, Orwashers provides bread to over 100 businesses, including salad mini chains Chop’t and Fresh & Co, as well as markets like Gourmet Garage.

As well as an expanded menu, Orwashers will be serving  Nobletree Coffee.
