Authentic Poppyseed (or nut) Babka within driving distance of Fairfield County?

Ok, here's a thread I have never seen. Where can I get authentic, fresh, yummy poppyseed (or nut) babka like my Babka (grandma) used to make?

Here's where I've tried:

Best so far - Shoprite in Ansonia brings some in from NJ - this is the best! Fresh, soft, full of poppyseeds. They also offer many other babkas - prune, jellies, cheese, nut.

Derby church next door - Polish deli/restaurant is a runner up to the above. All flavors available too.

Polish deli on River Road in Shelton just north of Sikorsky - hit or miss. They bring in babkas from a couple bakeries and it's a crapshoot.

Kasia Bakery, New Britain - supposedly one of the 2 best bakeries in that town. Line literally out the door. Pastries beautiful - wish we had such a bakery (patisserie really) in lower Fairfield County. Straight out of Europe. Babka though - just ok.

Taste of Europe, Norwalk - what they usually have is unfresh and days old. You can special order, but it's never that great.

So, any suggestions?
