You are on 22nd Avenue Northeast by Washington. This is Blackey's Bakery, a long-time neighborhood business.

    The interior and exterior of Blackey's Bakery ain't that great, but I sure like their kolaches! And their potato bread is so soft and delicious. Yum!

    My family has long been a customer of this famous nordeast bakery.
    Polish Rye can't be beat!

    This place is a block from my house. I used to work third shift and every morning when I came home the air everywhere smelled like fresh bread and pastries. It is really hard to resist!

    I remember going to Blackey's with my grandmother(baba) when I was a child of about 7 yrs old- 1947/48 with a red wagon and getting the best poppy seed bread ever made and the smells coming from Blacky's were the best I ever smelled.

    I just moved in down the street from Blackey's. It's wonderful to walk by late at night on the way home from the bar and smell the yummy bakery smell and know that in the morning I can haul my tired self out of bed and amble on over for a caramel roll and a cup of coffee.

    I just heard it closed. I am so sad because it has been a tradition in our family for 80 years to have polish rye, cheesecake and poppyseed bread for Easter. I want recipes!!! My Grandpa Vawracz used to go there and all my Uncles and cousins. It will be a huge loss for many. Where else is there to get these things?

    Sorry that Blackey's is closed. Was hoping someone may have continued the business. Every Sunday we would get loaves of Polish Rye and dozens of bismarks and doughnuts. They are remembered as still the best around!

    I was Employed as a baker at Blackey's 1979-1995. Worked for Bud and George and I worked for the Ernst Family ( who bought the bakery in the early 90's) for a few years as well.
