Specialties

Leske's was founded in 1961 by a German Baker (Hans Leske) with an Italian wife (Ella) who baked and sold Scandinavian/Nordic pastries and breads: Kringle, Kransekage, Sticks, Boller, Julekage and more.

Leske's is also know for NYC favorites like B&W Cookies with Choc/Vanilla fudge icing, Crumb buns and rafts, Cheese Cakes, Cupcakes, tarts, pies, and many types of cakes including Seven Layer and Hard Icing Cake.

History

Established in 1961

The Leske family sold the bakery in 1987 to the Rosenhammer family. Today Leske's is own by Kenneth Grande and Steven DeSimone who employee many of the same bakers and counter staff.

Managers Flo Grande, Lisa Grande, John Giglio & Harry Hawk along with the entire staff (and owners) invite you to come back to Leske's even if it's only your first visit. Try our specialties and let us know how we are doing.

I'm a native brooklyn boy. If you believe that this is the same bakery of 1980 think again. You are beter off going to Jean Danet 50 steps away its beter fresher cheaper.

Decent pastries, horrible customer service. Basically if you want anything special like a maple bacon donut, you have to arrive when they open because they run out quickly. The doughnuts were a standard level of sweetness and softness, but nothing amazing. The woman at a counter was apathetic and unhelpful.

I went and bought some bread and they didn't have a big bread so i asked for two small which usually cost $2.50 but instead a lady said it was $3.50 each which is $7 total.They are continuesly changing their prices.They do this every single time!!!! I really do not know how much does one small or one big bread cost but what i know is that it really isn't worth it to spend $7 or more on bread!!!!

These guys deserve 5 stars as the prices are great and their baked goods always please - with Thanksgiving almost here grab one of their pies to bring to dinner and you will be a hit - banana cream and chocolate cream pies are excellent. Everything you choose here comes from the long tradition of the Leske's - the German husband and Italian wife who started this bakery handed down their recipes. The food includes all the basics - breads, cakes and pastries.

Today, October 16, 2013, I purchased the following at Leske's: 1 apricot kringle, 3 crumb buns and a loaf of white bread. All stale! Not just stale but two-three days stale. I would respectfully warn people in the Bay Ridge area not to spend their good money at Leske's. This once cherished bakery is going straight downhill, AGAIN! The manager and salesgirl, incidentally, were completely disengaged and much more interested in chatting with eachother than in taking care of the customers. They give you a rather indifferent, rude impression. Not at all welcoming. It's really too bad. But as they say, "fool me twice, shame on me". I won't be back.

My family has been going to this bakery in Bay Ridge for years, and boy are they happy that it has finally re-opened. The seven layer cake is absolutely amazing. There is just something about the chocolate frosting that cannot be replicated anywhere else. They also have the best Napoleons. If you haven't tried either of those items from Leske's you're missing out.

Thanks for your long and continuing support

I grew up in Bay Ridge, and some of my fondest childhood memories involve a dessert from Leske's. I've so happy the bakery has reopened and my all my favorites are back, particularly the seven layer cake. Now that I'm old enough to choose my pastries unassisted, I opt for a black and white cookie every visit.
