Upper West Side residents are just days away from the grand opening of Kirsh Bakery and Kitchen. This new spot is just a few blocks down from The Sagamore, which will make it a convenient new eatery for late night eating or early morning breakfasts. Intended to serve to customers 24/7, it will be a unique addition to the neighborhood and great addition to the list of conveniences for our residents at The Sagamore.
Kirsh Bakery and Kitchen will specialize in breakfast food, namely French toast with many different topping choices but of course will serve up other dishes as well. Going with a French and German theme, other bakery items include cakes, pies, homemade milk bread and several different jams. Kirsh will also be serving fresh brewed coffee, which will be provided by beans grown in the Hudson Valley at Irving Farm.
