I'm having a hard time finding good fresh catered knishes in Toronto. I've been to some Bagel bakeries and either they were out of knishes or they didn't sell them at all. I view this as a MAJOR problem. I'm looking for standard "6-packs" of POTATO knishes.

They had none at Bagel Brothers on Bathurst and Steeles, Bagel House on Avenue had only stale pizza knishes left, No Frills on Wilson/Bathurst had none, Dominion at Bathurst/Sheppard had none, Loblaws on Bayview/Sheppard had none.

The only supermarket that had knishes was Sobey's on Clarke. They were a 6-pack for $4.59 and they were fresh and delicious. Although I enjoyed them, I'm sure I could find better.

The type that I'm looking for: Standard size (3 inch Domes or 2.5 inch X 3.5 inch Rectangular), not too much dough-to-potato ratio (in other words, I don't want to eat a doughball that has a hint of potato flavour), nicely pureed potato/fried onion in the middle. And of course: greasy.

To put it simply: If anyone out there was to have special guests over for a traditional Jewish feast i.e.) Rosh Hashanah dinner, and you wanted to bring home a dozen fresh POTATO knishes to impress your guests, where would you buy them?

There must be a few bakeries in the city that stock up on dozens of 6-packs of knishes daily - for some reason, these places are hiding from me.

Thanks a lot.
