Galloway’s Bakery in Eastchester: Jelly Donut Holes To Die For

4

In the early 1950’s, Galloway’s opened as a luncheonette in Bronxville.  At that time, they served pie by the slice.  The pies were so fantastic, that customers continually asked to buy an entire pie.  With the demand for pie being sky high, in 1956, Galloway’s opened as a bakery on Central Avenue in Hartsdale.  In 1963, Galloway’s Bakery moved to its current location in Eastchester, where the same family continues to serve not only pies, but also other tasty treats such as melt-a-ways, dinner rolls, almond rings, and coffee cakes.

One of the best treats at Galloway’s is the jelly donut holes.

Sprinkled with powdered sugar and filled with hand-pumped jelly, these donuts are three bites of deliciousness with a jelly center.  They melt in your mouth!

What a great place to bring your kids on a weekend morning.  Nothing like a good jelly donut to make you feel like a kid again!

The  411 on Galloway’s: 69 Harney Road, Eastchester.  914-725-4074. Open Friday through Sunday.  Cash only.

  1. My grandparents lived in Lake Isle. What a nice memory of my grandfather buying these for us on the weekend. I can still smell them in their kitchen on the formica table. My brother stil says their banana creme pie is still the best around and is known to eat a whole one in 2 days! Thanks…

  2. I’ve been going to Galloway’s for almost 40 years and now my daughter, age 12, loves their rolls, donuts, rainbow & chocolate lace cookies. The family that runs the place is so very nice.

  3. My Grandparents Fred and Marjorie Galloway opened this Bakery in 1956. Still family run by my Uncle Robert Galloway. Great memories as a kid helping my Grandfather “make the donuts”.
