Baking a Legacy
Diamond’s many recipes — for ryes, challah, babka, rugelach, bourekas, hamantaschen, strudel, Russian coffee cake, cheesecake, racetrack cake swirled and topped with rich chocolate — are well over three-quarters of a century old. They were brought to the West Coast from New York by the Eastern European immigrants who opened the shop in 1946, though details of that history have faded even as the traditions live on.
It is hard to say whether the friendly service or the delicious Jewish baked goods are better. I have so many fond memories from this bakery, that it is worth driving from Burbank for special occasions to get delicious sweets.
Every birthday since age 11 my cake has always been a cheesecake ,whether from fancy bakery or thawed supermarket stuff, depending on how much we had as family, as an adult I consider myself a cheesecake super fan and let me tell you I have tried hundreds upon hundreds of cheesecakes this is honestly the best one I've had in decades, thick moist custardy flavorful, I've told my friends "let me know when birthday is coming ill get you a diamond bakery cheesecake" they and I get excited (cause I buy one just for myself)
It's smells delicious the moment you walk in. Was promptly greeted when I entered the establishment. Service was exceptional. That alone is enough for me to come back. 5 stars :)
This bakery is great! The bagels and pastries are fresh, with just the right amount of crunch, flakiness and softness, as well just straight up delicious! Also the owner/Baker is super kind and a pleasure to talk to. Highly recommend!!
I love the Diamond Bakery. They make things that are so hard to find in other areas were Jewish bakeries have closed. I found the wonderful cornbread rye and excellent challah. The chocolate Babka was incredible. It's like going back in time.
