We are a family owned neighborhood bakery specializing in traditional hand crafted breads, pastries, cookies, and decorated cakes for all occasions. All of our products are kosher, dairy free, and baked on site. We are a peanut free facility and we offer vegan and sugar free options. Continental Kosher Bakery is under the kosher supervision of the Rabbinical Council of California (RCC).
In the early 1920s, family patriarch Phillip Levenson opened the original family bakery in New York City using recipes he brought with him from his native Russia. This family tradition continues today at Continental Kosher Bakery in North Hollywood, California. In continuous operation at this location since 1962, we use many of the same recipes and techniques from the old days. Our artisan bakers produce the finest kosher pareve breads, pastries, cookies, and decorated cakes for all occasions.
Guided by the religious and ethical teachings of our Jewish tradition, we bake six days a week closing each Friday afternoon through Saturday to rest and observe the Sabbath. We also close in observance of all Jewish Holy Days. In addition to our kosher ingredients, all of our packaging and equipment are certified kosher (as well as yashan, pareve, and pas yisroel). Whenever possible we locally source our ingredients. We do not use chemical preservatives in any of our products. All of our fresh produce is carefully inspected by our Mashgiach (our onsite kosher supervisor) for any possible impurities.
