Reviews for Leske's Bakery

Are all the languages spoken in the Scandinavian Peninsula mutually intelligible and what countries does the region actually include, seem like a good question until you've had a black and white cookie from Leske's bakery at which point you will think of a better question like. WHEN CAN I GET ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE COOKIES? Long before Bay Ridge became known as the heart of Brooklyn Italian culture, it was home to the city’s biggest Scandinavian population, and Leske’s was the best bakery around. Until everyone left and Leske’s closed. Thankfully now it is back and you can get another one of those cookies or Wienerbröd, kringle or limpa bread during Leske's operating hours.

If there are hipsters and yuppies in Brooklyn, Bay Ridge never got the memo, and Leske's is proof: a complete throwback bakery, it's known best for its black-and-white cookies, but the babkas, donuts, and danish are exemplary as well.

An old school bakery that makes some of the best donuts in town. Also be sure to get a black & white cookie.

Best traditional (non-italian) baking – 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.

Old Scandanavian Bakery – 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.
