Original Potato Knish (Kosher)

Yonah Schimmel Knishes ships its famous knishes nationwide on Goldbelly! Yonah Schimmel Knishes has been a neighborhood fixture on the Lower East Side since the 1890s. Today, they still make these classic Jewish specialty foods the traditional way — hand wrapping a filling of potatoes or kasha (buckwheat grain) with a thin layer of dough before sending it to the oven to bake. This Vegan Potato Knish is the original and quintessential knish.


Yonah Schimmel Knishes has been a neighborhood fixture on New York City’s Lower East Side since the 1890s, when rabbi Yonah Schimmel began selling knishes from a pushcart and then a storefront. The oldest knishery in America still makes knishes the traditional way — hand wrapping a filling of potatoes or kasha (buckwheat grain) with a thin layer of dough before sending it to the oven to bake. On top of the traditional potato and kasha knishes, this Jewish bakery makes modern flavors—sweet potato, mushroom, broccoli, and even sweet cheese ones!

Joseph S. - Wantagh, NY
Goldbelly is awesome and convenient and Yonah Schimmels has the best knishes on Earth. You can’t put a price on the quality delivered to you, so even though it’s not cheap, it’s well worth it.
David F. - Superior, CO
They always arrive fresh - when you heat them up in the oven, they taste as if you were just at Yonah's and picked them up.
Alexandra P. - Edgewood, NM
Being that they have been in business for so long, I felt confident in the quality of their product. But I didn't know how well it would stand up to my dad's memory of having knishes in New York when he was young. Well, they were an amazing and perfect surprise for my parents' 50th anniversary party.
Ralph R. - Coral Springs, FL
This purchase was a remedy for a bad experience I had this winter where an expensive cake was lost in transit for days, defrosted and delivered to me unusable for the holidays. I was about to write your company off when a customer service rep intervened and offered a refund back for the cake (which had to be thrown away) in the form of a credit. This experience went much better with the product arriving close to the expected time and in good shape.
Arlene H. - Darien, CT
Yummy Knishes arrived and were as delicious as childhood memory hoped they would be.
Florence H. - McKinney, TX

The knishes were outstanding, just like I remember over 50 years ago. I am in Florida and not one deli here has the exceptional quality of a Yonah Schimmel knish. The blueberry cheese knish was the best. Also, great service, packaged very well and still chilled.

Delivered on the exact date as requested. As an x New Yorker who frequented Yonah Shimel on the lower east side, I can say they are the best knishes except for what I can remember my Granny made 60+ years ago. Now as a Floridian, it is great to be able to have them delivered to my door. They are a treat for sure.

The food was delivered the day listed. It was cold and the ice packs held up great and it was also wrapped in insulation. I questioned customer service about when the items get shipped because it was my first time, and I got an answer in less than 24 hours which eased my concern.
Iarry S. - Moraga, CA
Knishes arrived fresh and they were delicious!
Gail W. - West Linn, OR
The delivery experience was excellent. The package arrived at my condo in record time. The icepacks were mostly frozen and the Knishes were protected. I live in a gated complex that sometimes is hard to navigate and delivery drivers unexperienced with my complex get lost and that causes a delay. That didn't happen. No delay. Knishes were in excellent shape. The Knishes went across the country from NYC to northern CA.
Carrie S. - Sacramento, CA
Fast shipping, excellent packing, good communication
Kristin W. - Austin, TX
The food was great, special and not available where we live. The gift was a great surprise.
