Yuki’s Bakery Now Open in Hoboken
Yuki’s Bakery &Coffee, an authentic Israeli bakery and café featuring fresh-baked goods made to order, with organic and local products, is now open—and hiring—on the ground level of the Monroe Center in Hoboken.
“Baking has been my passion since I was a kid, and now I’m excited to share my childhood flavors with my community,” says owner Yuki (Aviyah) Levinson. “I make cookies, breads, granola, cakes and more. It all started from the passion of creating what makes you enjoy eating.”
A resident of North Bergen, Levinson grew up in Israel but spent a decade cooking, baking and managing in New York City’s restaurant industry. Over the past four years, she’s been baking and selling baked goods to restaurants and cafés in NYC under her brand Yuki’s Cookies.
“Despite the challenges that Covid-19 brought to the culinary and hospitality industries, I believe that comfort food is always in need,” she says. So she decided to open her own shop in the heart of Hoboken’s residential area.
Her specialties include babka (available in different flavors), challah bread, borek, rugelach, vegan oat and date cookies, granola and more. Coffee beverages are by Counter Culture Coffee. Additionally, the shop will be offering delicatessen items, such as authentic tahini and za’atar.
The shop is currently taking applications for experienced bakers, pastry chefs and baristas.
