Lassen and Hennings Bakery and Deli Brooklyn Heights – Red Velvet Cake
114 Montague St
Last week, we went up to Brooklyn Heights and checked out a few more places on Montague. Our dinner at a sushi place wasn’t very impressive (it was run by Chinese) but a spoiled evening was quickly averted when we discovered the Lassen and Hennings Bakery. Everything at Lassen and Hennings is made on the premises which says a lot about the quality and freshness.
I heard the sandwiches are amazing especially on their fresh baked bread, but having just finished dinner, we opted for a slice of their Red Velvet cake and sat outside on the promenade park overlooking the Brooklyn harbour and the financial district.
At first I was doubtful about the Red Velvet Cake because who can really beat out Cake Man Raven in Brooklyn right? But in all honesty I have to say that Lassen and Hennings makes a really good Red Velvet Cake and the fact that they serve coffee and its located a block away from an amazing park and just minutes from where we live in DUMBO, it’s a plus. I’ll have to do a side by side comparison one of these days!
