I bought your Yulekaker in Rowland Pa at a craft fair. It was the same taste as I got 50 years ago in Brooklyn. I think it was Larsen's, than we got Christiansen's which was not as good. I will get people who go to the city get it from you, it was really great. Thank You

We've all gotten used to generic baking. We buy crumbcakes in boxes at the supermarket, and everything is artificial. Our friends bring donuts to the office. They are greasy and mildly tasty and the sugar sticks to your insides and eventually kills your spirit. Not at Leske's. These guys make donuts (something no other baker takes as much time with) exciting! The fillings are just that ... fillings! Not a drop of jelly, it's FULL of jelly. There isn't anything they make that isn't good. Try their donuts, anything danish, their coffee pastries, and the best apple strudel in town. Any town.

Pros: Taste

Cons: You won't ever buy supermarket cr*p again

As a former baker, I couldn't help but offer a review of LESKE'S Bakery - a true, old world bakery where everything is made from scratch daily. (Unlike most bakeries today. Sad to say, but almost ANYONE can open a bakery with little or no baking experience. Wholesalers make nearly all baked goods available either frozen and ready to bake, or frozen and completely baked. From danish to muffins to cookies, they do nearly all the work for you. Check out most supermarket 'bakeries' - nearly ALL are supplied by one of a few 'wholesalers'.......but I digress.......)

Back to LESKES - I urge you to stop in some morning, try some of their Danish - they have dozens of varieties. Try a Danish Ring, or their "CRUMB SQUARE", or their donuts, or Black & Whites (made with buttercream frosting and not confectioners glaze)...try one of their many layer cakes, or their pastries, as a matter of fact try ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. You will NOT be disappointed!!!

Leskes has been a staple in the Bay Ridge Community for more years than I care to remember. Sunday mornings, it was Church and then stop for cake and bread at Leskes.

Not to miss products: during the holidays its Christmas Limpa bread and Yuleakager. Year round you can get the best apple strudle, cheese danish, black and white cookies and a personal favorite - custard kringla.

Don't miss the bakery when you are in Brooklyn, a piece of Brooklyn's cultural history.

PROS: Norwegian cakes and breads
CONS: none

This is a piece of old Bay Ridge from when it was lots of Norwegian, Irish and Swedes. The bread (not Italian) is amazing and the cakes and pies are great too. The hours are limited. They open at 9:00 and don't bother going after mid-afternoon, because they will be wiped out.
