OMG Knishes - Edit

I honestly cannot believe these are vegan. We had the potato one and kasha one. Both were great and the kasha have me total nostalgia.

Pros: Traditional recipe that happens to be vegan

Cons: Fast paced so know what you want in advance

Delicious Knishes! - Edit

Great Knishes. Just double check as few aren't vegan but most are. Two and I was stuffed. Mushroom one is yum.

Both history and delicious food - Edit

The knishes are really tasty, and it's really a neat spot to go to. I mean, its been there since 1910! There is some seating so you can get your knishes to eat there or get them to go. They ask for a minimum for credit card purchases, I think it was $10. So keep that in mind because the knishes are quite cheap if you only get one or two.

Delicious Knishes! - Edit

All of the non-cheese knishes here are vegan! My fiance and I tried the spinach and sweet potato knishes, both were good, even better with mustard, and very filling. If you love potatoes, you need to go. The staff were very polite, and this Yonah Schimmel's is a wonderful remnant of old new york, it's one of those rare gems gentrification hasn't touched. There's an old dumb waiter and the original tin ceiling is still there, it just gives me a nice feeling when I'm so used to seeing well loved old places torn down and turned into hipster nonsense. I plan on coming back and trying every vegan knish on their menu, and probably buying a dozen to freeze at home!!

Pros: deliciouis, old new york/not hipsterfied, kind staff
