901 North 3rd Street at Poplar

Founded by Leonard B. Lipkin, Kaplan's New Model Bakery has been supplying the neighborhood with challah and rye breads for more than 60 years. Kaplan's is the only remaining Jewish bakery in the area, a surviving link to the large Jewish enclave that thrived here until the 1950s. Today Kaplan's supplies traditional baked goods to Honey's Sit-n-Eat, a Jewish-Southern comfort food luncheonette at 4th and Brown.
