The meal that follows the 24-hour fast of atonement is one of the most eagerly awaited on the Jewish calendar. After all, what’s better than stuffing yourself with bagels and lox after starving for a day? Spiff up this year’s break-fast by mixing some creative (and, for those keeping kosher, meatless) items from these foodie destinations.

1 Cinnamon Churro Babka

Masa Madre
For dessert, grab this loaf, baked with the literal and flavorful twist of a churro, from the city’s new babka experts. $20. 111 N. Aberdeen St., West Loop

2 Pickles

Heritage Restaurant & Caviar Bar
The new market here offers three types that would make your zayde proud: house pickles, curry zucchini spears, and bread-and-butter pickle chips. $8 per pound. 2700 W. Chicago Ave., Humboldt Park

3 Bagels and Bialys

Mindy’s Bakery
Mindy Segal’s new bakery is cranking out sourdough variants with exemplary chew. Bagels: $3 each; $30 for a dozen. Bialys: $3.50 each. 1747 N. Damen Ave., Bucktown

4 Egg Salad

Bungalow by Middle Brow
Known for its pizza and beer, Middle Brow also makes egg salad flavored with aromatic curry, a welcome spice for a normally one-note dish. $8 for six ounces. 2840 W. Armitage Ave., Logan Square

5 Creamed Trout

All Together Now
The Jewish Midwesterner will appreciate this spread of lake trout, with lemon and dill to balance the fishiness. $12.50. 2119 W. Chicago Ave., West Town

6 Lox

You can’t go wrong with anything here for the High Holy Days, but if you grab only one thing, make it the salmon, cured in-house. $40 per pound. 1840 W. Irving Park Rd., North Center
