We ordered a cake for a church celebrations which was held yesterday, Sept.29th. When we received the cake it was the wrong cake.. I was devastated and emailed them at once. Not receiving a response we went on with our church activities- before the church service ended I get called into the back of the church because they said there was a delivery. It was the bakery bringing us the right cake. We were all so happy because the original cake was so beautiful. Words could never express how grateful we are to the bakery, I have never seen a baker come through in such a short time to correct their mistake. Their customer service and commitment to make sure they keep their end of the bargain is beyond what we usually see nowadays from companies. The cake was beautiful and delicious made our Pastor Appreciation Day a success. Thank you LGV Bakery. More...
It's always bustling inside but I always get great service. Brought a pound of their cookies to a community meeting and it was met with a lot of fanfare. And recently ordered a breakfast sandwich for delivery. It was fast, delicious, & on Cuban bread. So delicious and a good bang for your buck. More...

Easily the best place to get a cake in the city. Delicious & good service
The best bakery in Brooklyn.
Good cake. I love to buy from there. They are on time when I pick up. Get orders right. Good prices.
Everything here is delicious even the hot coffee.
I'm so happy and elated with the service and the cake i received. The cake was a work of art, not only was it beautiful but it tasted so good! Haven't had good dominican cake like that in years. You guys really out did yourselves with decor and detail. Thank you so much, I am a customer for life. More...
Amazing service and they were able to deliver exactly what I was asking for. My cake was delicious and everything they have is delicious. I have no complaints and I would(and have)recommended this place to many ppl. More...
They made a sesame street cake for my baby's first birthday and it looked great and tasted great! Placing the order and picking it up was super simple! Will definitely use for future events. More...
Delicious and great job our baby shower cake. Will definitely place another order.
This bakery has been baking the most wonderful cakes for my family for over 16 years. The flavor, designs and prices are all amazing. This place is very well kept and sanitary. If there ever is a problem with an order or cake they will either fix it or return you the money. Love this place. More...
La comida regular
Excellent cakes and Desserts
I have been ordering cakes for special occasions for 10 years plus. Their Cinco Leches cake is world class
Biscochos deliciosos para toda ocasión
I live in PA, and all the places here were either rude or too expensive. I called these guys and they were curtious, professional, and accomodating. Really gave us the 5 star treatment and the cake/appetizers were a hit at my party. Thank you guys so much! More...
I just celebrated my 60th Birthday and my theme was Marilyn Manroe. I purchased my cake from your bakery and I would like to say Thank You for such a beautiful job on my cake. Loved it and so did my guests I will recommend you to everyone who asks where I got my cake from Good Job More...
Great place for any thing
Everyone should try a "B2" its 2 burgers w french fries and a can of soda. Better than McDonald's.
Thank you La Gran Via Bakery as alway on point excellent service She loved her cake a Beautiful and tasty cake
They did a wonderful job on our wedding cake. It was so delicious and just gorgeous! Flowers were brought over from Michael's and they added them so nicely.
Cheap and good
Great bakery for whole cakes. They are open 24/7 and always have extra whole Tres Leche cakes for last minute events. You can customize the cake too if you preorder ahead of time. Was able to order a "Dominican" style cake for coworkers and they said it taste authentic and good. More...
Been coming here for years and they have never failed me yet. Coffee con leche and the Guava pastries are so good. The fresh squeezed orange juice is always a nice treat.
I love it
Tacos are good
Super chill spot to get a quick bite or enjoy their many desserts. Staffs are friendly and attentive. Warning some of the staffs there don't speak english but usually there is at least one person there that speaks and understand English. I ordered the Philly cheese steak sandwich that was pretty good I definitely recommend getting the Cinco leche cake one of my favorite desserts to get. Usually if their busy the wait time for a sandwich is more then normal. Overall love this bakery will be returning soon. More...
Excellent customer service the manager is very polite & friendly have a great smile I will definitely recommended this bakery to my family & friends
The Jackson Heights location is excellent. They are all very friendly and make you feel welcome no matter how many times you visit them. The cakes, the desserts, the coffee; EVERYTHING IS DELICIOUS.. I hope they do well in the neighborhood. More...
Super amazing tres leches. My co-workers all loved it . I think the price was pretty reasonable and they have a myriad of designs to choose from. Make sure to order in advance if you want a custom designed cake. More...
My boyfriend got me my birthday cake from here. We have gotten many cakes over the years and they have all been delicious.
Very good cake's
We have been getting our kids birthday cakes at La Gran Via thier entire lives. Thanks for all your hard work!!!
Delicious tres leche cake.
Today was my first time. I bought a cake for my brother's birthday and everyone in my family like the cake. I would definitely go back again.
Great place to buy a cake with great flavor & nice design plus the staff is very nice.
What a great place to stop in sunset for something sweet. First off, they are open twenty four hours which means they are available anytime you need a sugar fix. I've never order a whole cake from them but I've tried a bunch of different things. The tres leche slice is as authentic as it can get. I also love their flan, it has the perfect balance of creaminess as well as excellent texture. I did try a dessert in a plastic cup, I believe it was the loly sundae...this was actually a little too sweet for me so I'll just stick with the basics. Also you can't go wrong with the rice pudding here! Definitely looking forward to come back soon. More...
DELICIOUS is the word. The desserts are simply sinful. I needed a tres leche cake for a Birthday. It came in single servings as well as whole cakes, multiple varieties and out of this world. I sampled a pastry with a guava filling and before I could swallow the first one, I popped a second on in my mouth. Trust me, I am a picky eater and rarely change where I shop but you know I'm getting all my cakes from here now on. And the staff is really helpful as well. I had no idea about any of the desserts and the baker took time to explain a few which was really nice. On top of that, its a mom and pop shop and I think its great to support community business. More...
As long as you're prepared to be a little flexible, LGV will come through for you. They were able to create a beautiful cake for me with 24 hours' notice. To be fair, I waited an hour past the time I asked that it be ready, and the cake had a different batter than I requested (I asked for Dominican cake and they couldn't have it ready in time without swapping for homestyle). But it was really a lovely cake and I would definitely come again for a future celebration cake. Pro tip: stick with the classics - I asked for pineapple and buttercream filling: the pineapple was perfect, but the buttercream I would describe as serviceable. I'll stick with pineapple or guava in the future. More...
Good bakery. Good price. Many options.
La Gran Via Family owned and when you show up you are part of the family .
This bakery is always on point as always what is asked from them they did exactly that..
Great food and Latin bakery goods.
The Owners have been a stature of the community. I have friends who come from within and out of the 5 boroughs to purchase their cakes as well as their pastries
My favorite cake place 20yrs!

Always open and Great Customer service
Amazing cakes! My family and I have been patrons of La Gran Via for decades. I first tried their cakes about 40 years ago, when they first opened. I was a little girl, but still, I remember I loved them. I remember their grandfather, the father, and now the 2 children who run the bakery. Now, so many years later, their quality is still the same. They simply have delicious and super fresh cakes. Their cakes are moist and taste so good. I don't live in Sunset Park, but I go there specifically to get cakes because they're scrumptious. This family establishment an excellent example of what an excellent bakery is. Besides their cakes, their pastries, as well as their sandwiches, are delicious. I highly recommend LGV Bakery! More...
Best pastries friendly staff love the coffee
Always a pleasure patronizing. Staff n Owners are so professionals.
I love this bakery. It's open 24/7 you can lunch n bring home fresh baked bread and flan. The birthday packages are awesome. The girls went the extra mile for my daughter birthday cake. Thank you so much. More...
My favorite bakery
LGV Bakery is insane. They made us a custom order of their tres leches cups for our engagement party and our guests were blown away! Not only did the desserts taste like little pieces of heaven, but the presentation was so classy and elegant. Thank you so much LGV!! All I can say is- order their Loly Sundaes IMMEDIATELY for your next event! You will not be disappointed! More...
Best cakes love this place
el mejor café
Always quick and speedy service. Been coming here for years. The girls are always friendly and the food is great. The prices are amazing though. No other bakery in Brooklyn can beat their prices for such good pastries and birthday cakes More...
Cheesecake is amaaazing!! Prices are great!
I love this Bakery! The food is delicious, I swear by their Cuban sandwiches! Also I have ordered tons of cakes here for my family! Best tres & cinco leches cakes, and Dominican cakes. The staff is pretty friendly, but the owners of the bakery are the real deal. They are very hands on in the shop, taking cake orders making the cakes, delivering the cakes. To top it all off, THEIR 24HRS!! I highly recommend this bakery. More...
Love this Bakery over 10yrs servicing me!
Es bueno todo en especial el pastel
Hell No How Dare You
one of my favorite bakeries, good products, good customer service, excellent food,
This a 24 hour bakery that serves anything ranging from a sandwich all the way to a cinco leches cake. Thats amazing, and honestly the prices are very affordable
Nice small location

Very good soul food
Buenos pastelitos, en especial el 5 leches
Muy bonito y sabroso
That's my favorite place for food and especially the cakes wonderful
My Husband and I have been buying cakes from La Gran Via for the last 5 years for every occasion in our family. We have never been disappointed. The flavor is always delicious and the quality of the design is always A1. Thank you La Gran Via. You have a lifetime customer in me. More...
Buen pan Méxicano
Best Spanish bakery on 5 ave
The best bakery in Park Slope love them
Nice.. courteous workers and delicious pastry and food
Never fails ! Great cakes year over year.. too bad I'm in NJ and can't get it more often !! Excellent cake and presentation always get what I want Good Job guys !!
I have been craving Tres Leches cake for months and when my husband and I were in Sunset Park, I knew this was my chance. I found that La Gran Via had some top rated Tres Leches cake so I stopped by the get some. It's a small shop but was incredibly busy. This is clearly where everyone in the neighborhood comes for cakes for parties or whatever sweet treat they are craving. They had a huge display in the front of cakes that could be ordered for parties and then next to that, there were all their sweet confections you buy to go. They do have a small counter lining the back of the store that you could sit at if you wanted to eat your purchases. When I got home, I knew I had made the right choice. This cake was unbelievable. The flavors were incredible. It was very sweet, but that's exactly what you want in your Tres Leches cake. Man this was good. I want to try some of their other confections! More...
La Gran Via Bakery is my family's go-to for the best cake. Hands down. I've been patronizing this business for many years, and their service and quality does not disappoint. My favorite is the Tres Leches with fresh strawberries and pineapple. Dulce de Leche is also a family favorite. Whenever we order, we would have our order fulfilled within the same day. A few years back, my regular lunchtime order would be their Cuban sandwiches, but I needed to give that up because my waistline was getting too happy with it.I recently ordered a small birthday cake for my husband and the business owner Royd was so helpful! He had my order ready in a matter of hours, and took the extra step in delivering it outside since I was double-parked (the traffic police are vicious on 5th Ave). Royd and Betsy go above and beyond in their customer service, which is the reason why we continue to patronize this family business. Nothing beats their attention to detail, which is why La Gran Via remains a local business staple in Sunset Park. Give them a try! You won't be disappointed. More...
Best cakes in town. 5 leches is my favorite, my kids love the 3 leches and mini cupcakes. We have ordered cakes for Birthdays, baby showers and graduations, they always look and taste amazing. Just make sure you arrive with plenty of time when picking up because they put the final touches and package it when you get there. More...
All cakes are the bomb here. Special orders always amazing. Owners super nice. Staff very productive.
Best Tres leches cake in brooklyn!! There's a variety of sizes. You can even request it's customize but it has to be the day before.
Last minute cake request ... needed something for my son 6 month smash cake picture shoot and la gran via bakery was able to make it happen in 15 mins! Such great service , staff is very polite and friendly even with the high volume of customers. I normally just grab a bite here and there for breakfast because they have a big selection of breakfast food for affordable price or I'll pick up a yummy desert .. ( flan is a must and the rice pudding!) More...
If you're looking for a cake for a special occasion this is the place to get it. Great pastries and service, you can't go wrong with LGV. Been coming here since I was a kid. More...
I must start off by saying Roy & Betsy along with their staff team are AMAZING! They always make sure that my cake not only looks good but tastes good. I know Roy for many years now if there's ever a problem he makes it right just to satisfy all his customers. If you want the BEST Decor cake stop in @ La Gran Bakery :) By the way Betsy my birthday cake was beautiful! Dominican style with banana filling was Delicious! It wasn't sweet, just how I wanted it "PERFECT" I love you guys, keep up the great talents that you both have. More...
Auri So Nice
Going to this bakery for over 25 yesrs. Best coffee in town.
They did a really good job for the cake and it tastes great for the price we paid. Very impressed about the quality of the cake. The cupcakes and cookies we ordered looked good but didn't taste as good as how they look. Will def come back for the cake in the future. The pick up took us half an hour wait in the store though. We were in a rush so plan extra time if you are picking up on the day of.And not to mention their breakfast roll was pretty good too. More...
This guava pastry was so delicious and yummy. Baked go perfection and not to sweet. I ate half before I could take the picture lol. My cousin had the chocolate mousse I couldn't take a picture lol of hers but it was delicious as well. We stopped by at 2:30am More...
Ordered my baby shower cake and ordered three more cakes for my daughter first birthday they never disappoint , expect for the baby shower cake they didn't put like a base to hold the two tiers and my cake was destroyed , I had to pay half the price again for them to fix it aside from that all the flavors taste really good , I was very happy with my orders and their flan is my favorite .
I got my baby shower cake from here and I was amazing.
Royd , Betsy and the entire team at this bakery are incredible people who love their job and know the importance of cakes . They made a custom chess shaped cake for my son and husband's b'day today and the turnaround from ordering to execution was painless . I tried 4 different bakeries who could care less to help me out and get creative. These guys made this cake within the budget and ON TIME ! More...
Ga Hing C.
This is my go to place when there is a birthday and we need a cake. I've ordered 6+ cakes from here and sometimes it was not necessarily for birthday ocassions but for cravings. The tres leches and cinco leches are the only ones I order and let me tell you that those cakes arw dangerous. You eat a piece and then suddenly you find yourself eating a second one. I highly recommend getting those two (tres leches or cinco leches). More...
Love this place! We get all our cakes here. The tres leche cake is unbelievable! And the staff are always friendly.
Love that it I open 24 hours and have a big selection. I've tried the cinco leches and flan twice and loved it! Light and sweet. Will have to try more items soon! Must try if you're in the area. Tip: for card, must be $10 or more More...
Love the cakes and the food here . I get cakes for all occasions made here .
On my top 3 favorite bakeries! My favorite thing about this bakery is that it is open 24hrs I had forgotten to pick up cupcakes for my son's school party the next day and I realized at midnight. No supermarket is open at this time. To my relief when I remembered this bakery is open. I got them cupcakes! I also have gotten a couple of birthday cakes here in the 5 leches flavor! My favorite their prices are also very reasonable. La Gran Via never fails me More...
Excellent cake. Delicious n fresh. Any picture u want on cake.
From my 40th birthday cake, too my goddaughter Sweet Sixteen cake. I must say you have to get your cake from here. Awesome customer service, and you will get your money worth it...My family and I appreciate your services....Keep up the good work.... More...
I come here way too much. They're open 24/7, and it's too easy to access. Seriously though, if you're jonsing for sweet delicious goodies, they have you covered. There's something for everyone. My favs are the tres leches and flan. Not to be outdone by a quatro and cinco leches! They have their own unique desserts, one such is the lolly sundae- it's a riff on tres leches and it's sweet and almost too much, in a good way of course. Cupcakes, cakes, cheesecake, pastries, cookies are also available. Their plain dominican cake is the only thing that doesn't deliver for me, so if anyone has any recommendations for that, pls let me know! Breakfast and lunch items are also on their menus.FYI they are a Latin bakery, not specified as a Mexican bakery or other. One of the employees had mentioned to me the owners were Cuban. No matter, they're terrific. More...
Love everything here
My favorite place to buy cake in Brooklyn.
Te place is really nice and cozy
Nothing like la gran via bakery
Great iced coffee, on special on Fridays from 10a
They cakes r delicious
Its 4am and you want a Cuban Sandwich on fresh baked bread - where do you go? HERE!! thats where.
El servicio al cliente esta muy eficiente. Para mi gusto la repostería se pasa de azúcar
THE BEST SPANISH DESSERT FLAN MADE FROM SCRATCH AND DELICIOUS
I've been buying cakes from here since I was so young! All time favorite bakery ever! I am always satisfied with the outcome.
Always order my cakes from there. Really good service and there cakes are awesome
I struggled for a while finding a good bakery with great quality. My boyfriend recommended this bakery and said the cakes were amazing. I must say the service was fast, the people were nice, and management is always around helping out if you have any questions or concerns which is really impressive for a business. The first time I went, I ordered 2 Tres Leche with Strawberries Cake and it was amazing. It's perfect the cake is not extremely moist but perfectly moist. The second time around, I needed a cake for my nephews first birthday it was given to me as a task by my sister, it had to be a bubbles guppies cake to match the theme of his party. I didn't know where to go, so I went back to the same bakery and gave it a shot. I spoke with Roy who was very helpful and made me feel confident about my order.I must say I was extremely impressed with the cake and how beautiful it looked! It definitely was Bubble Guppies down to the core. I think I have definitely found a bakery that works well for me and provides excellent customer service. More...
My Uncle brought me to this amazing place this past weekend and I'm glad he did! I picked up a guava pastry (MY FAVE), two slices of cinco leches cake, 2 slices of flan and a rice pudding cup to go. I made a BIG mistake... should have ordered the whole damn tray of flan instead because it's the BEST! The cake was awesome too! Definitely coming back! More...
Pillar and institution of the neighborhood. Wonderful food, cakes and traditional Latin desserts. My wife and I commissioned our wedding cake here, of our own modest simple design. They worked really nicely with us to design a cake my wife wanted and it came out beautiful and delicious. I still say the best wedding cake I've ever had. More...
great coffee, excellent pastries. loved it.
I ordered a Minnie Mouse cake for my granddaughter's 2nd bday. The design was amazing! BEAUTIFUL! The taste, EVEN BETTER! The cake was ready on time and the staff was professional. BTW, their sandwiches, bread, and pastries...DELICIOUS!!!! More...
yummmm, 2nd take-out of from their La Gran Via Bakery and the awsum potato balls and si'si'si', just a good as porto's p.balls, which is huge to say, indeed!!! gonna go back soon,...it's that good !!!!!!! More...
I can not emphasize how gorgeous the creations that come from this location are. All I have to say is there is a reason why they have been in business for 20+ years. TY so much for helping us make a coworkers day! This cake got more attention than any other one I have seen come through this office and for the price? I doubt you can find a competitor. Again, THANK YOU LA GRAN VIA! For never failing from your delicious food to your beautiful creations. More...
I am very picky when it comes to Dominican cake and this place by far makes the best Dominican cake,it is very moist and delicious,to bad I moved out of New York but for my bday I will convince the hubby to take a drive to Brooklyn lol I don't want to take any chances with bakery's down here in philly and like the old saying goes you stick to the evil you know but in this case stick to the best you know....
Great bakery! I have been buying custom specialty cakes from LGV for many years, even after I moved out of the neighborhood. The cakes always look beautiful and taste good. The bakery is kept clean and the staff is polite and friendly. I have never had an issue with them. More...
Best cup of coffee in town without question,been buying my coffee there since the early nineties!
Check out her second birthday cake! It was like they plucked it right from the picture I gave them. The blue icing was not smart, as everyone looked like they ate a Smurf afterward, but it was still delicious!
We have been so pleasantly surprised by La Gran Via. My wife routinely buys cakes here for work events. The quality is good, the prices are fair, and the service is really friendly and nice. Stop buy around Christmas time for the life size animatronic Santa singing Christmas carols in Spanish out front! More...
I got my birthday cake from here. A tres leches cake that was about 10 inches in diameter and personalized with my name. It was the best birthday cake I've ever had and it was just $17. More...
They make great stuff cheapMorir SonyandoExcellent espressoExcellent perniltres lecheopen 24 hrsI love this place

Prices went up high after they started selling more, that's the only downside to it, but place sells great food.
Ordered the cake online. It was a really good cake
Yes the leches cake are delicious love this bakery has been our place for cakes since 2012.
Everyone loved our cake!!! Tres leches NAKED cake style with strawberry and custard filling. First time customer and will continue to get our cakes here. (Flowers and figs were not from the bakery that was a personal added touch) More...
They have simple tres leches cake wish it was more of a tres leches cake though compared to the others I've had.
A great bakery with amazing customer service. Recently went to order a cake for 30 and two dozen cupcakes. The staff was so friendly and helpful, was able to accommodate my needs without any hesitation, the tres leche princess themed cake came out delicious and looks great. The princes and superheroes themed cupcakes were amazing. Never a disappointment and they go above and beyond to ensure your satisfaction. Would definitely recommend this place, this is my 3rd time ordering from this bakery and not a single complaint. Will be back again for future needs. More...
Love this place. But they always changing personal and they look upset or stress making fun of the costumers because we dont know the exact name of the breads we are not bakers . Or wispering in a suspicious ways not polite at all basic costumer service so we can feel welcome and come back More...
I have been a customer at this bakery for yearsssss. Well I should say my parents really but same difference. Our major "go to" is the pastellios de guava. They are always fresh and always taste delicious. We have ordered cake after cake from here and never been disappointed. The reason for my review now is that I'm currently 37 weeks pregnant and wanted an amazing cake for my shower. Of course I trusted LA Gran Via with the taste since I've always ate their cake (s). However, I was super nervous about putting the customized cake in their hands since it was meant for my shower and I knew a lot of people would see it. I went with my guy though, gave them the idea I wanted and told them I trusted them. Oh man it was the best decision I made. Everyoneeeeeeeee at my shower LOVED how it looked AND how it tasted. Money beyond well spent. I will never ever look elsewhere for a custom made cake. They set the bar for me. Thank you so much LA Gran Via for always satisfying my family and I !!! More...
We order cakes from here for occasions. Very tasty. Somewhat over priced though. Friendly staff. Good breakfast items. My husband loves the cappuccino here (to sweet for me) big selection of pastries and cakes. Very good food.
The Tres Leches is indeed delicious and their cakes are very good - especially on weekends since they are freshly made. This is not a place for "hot food," but for baked goods. Betsy, one of the managers, is delightful. She is very friendly and helpful. Thank you Betsy for the pretty and tasty cakes you have made for my events. More...
The tres leche here is superb! Perhaps a little too sweet, but otherwise, it's delicious! The cookies were lackluster, but the slices of cakes make up for it.
For the price range this place can't be beat. If you need a last minute wedding cake, this place is seriously a bargain. 2012 - 14 tiers for my brother = 780$ (white with silver designs - ordered a week before the event)2015 - 3 tiers for my niece = 250$ (customized, green with gold, chocolate upgrade - ordered the night before the event)2009 - 18 tiered cake for my event = 1,000 (white with red designs)I'll be back to be more thorough and post pics. More...
I'm not sure what a tres leche was supposed to taste like because it was my first time trying it... but damnnnnnn! It was hella good! Almost like a soggy pound cake filled with nothing but deliciousness. More...
I've gotten birthday cake twice from here. One time I customized it with fillings and the other I got one of the pre made tres leches black&white cakes. Both times my coworkers were raving and asking where I got the cakes from. Assortment of other pastries is great too although I haven't tried many of them. More...
My friend ordered a tres leches cake with fresh strawberries for a baby shower. It looked exactly as she requested and it was beyond delicious...truly! I can't wait to order a cake of my own. More...
A friend paid us a visit with a flan (like an egg custard) in tow; I've been hooked since then! $19 will get you a large flan. Honestly speaking, I could eat the entire pudding in one sitting. Finally, I'm living in Sunset Park over 39 years and I wasn't even aware of this little gem. Cakes, puddings, etc. they make it all! Oh one more thing; they'r e opened 24/7! More...
got my bridal cake from here 2 years ago n it was beautiful n taste amazing. . my family members still bring it up till this day
THE BESTTT TRES LECHES CAKE!
We used La Gran Via Bakery for our wedding in September and were extremely happy with the results. We needed a bakery that made Dominican cakes and would deliver in BK. I was very particular about how I wanted the cake to look so I brought lots of pictures and they delivered just what I wanted. I didn't like the dividers they had between the layers and mentioned my hesitation so without even asking the baker covered the dividers in frosting so it looked seamless. And of course the cake was delicious - many people mentioned going back for seconds. A wedding is inevitably full of stress but La Gran Via Bakery make at least the cake a stress free experience! More...
The food here won't be the best you've ever had. The coffee is on the good side of mediocre (except the iced coffee, it's perfect). The pastries are scrumptious but not the best in the area. I can't speak on the taste of the cakes, but they look made by a skilled cake decorator. I'm sure your wondering why I gave this place such a high rating? LET ME TELL YOU WHY: the hometown feel. This place is very impressive. They are open 24 hours a day and it's been in business for years. The staff treats everyone like a regular. The service is quick and your food will be hot and tasty. The staff believes in the product they are selling and they seem to like working there. Places like this hardly exist anymore. It's a classic. Do yourself a favor: order up some flan or tees leeches cake and an ice coffee. Perfect representation of what this little place can do. You will leave with a sugar high and a feeling of family. More...
I've only got a birthday cake, service was very friendly and helpful, I was able to pick up on the same say, the designs and colors were just as I requested. I had the tres leche w guava and vanilla flavors, the cake was not overtly sweet or heavy, the kids love it! I will definitely go back for more birthday occasions! They also have an online website you can just reserve it online and pick up after. Very reasonably priced too! More...
la gran via did our BEAUTIFUL cake for our engagement party! Not only did it taste amazing (their cinco leche cake is out of this world!) but it was beautifully decorated! Would highly recommend them and can't wait to have more cake!! :) More...
Just wanted to give you yet again another HUGE THANK YOU for being so creative and making wonderful Cakes for all these years! Minecraft Birthday Cake for my Godson was a HUGE hit - not to mention YUMMY!!!! I truly do tell all my friends about you and your wonderful services!!Thank you - More...
Located in the heart of Sunset Park, the brother and sister team that operate this bakery have some mighty big shoes to fill. The business was first started by their parents and has been serving generations of New Yorkers with their wonderful breads and cakes. I have had their Tres Leches cake and it is without a doubt the best I’ve had in the NYC area. If you need a custom cake (round or sheet) La Gran Via delivers consistent quality, with a super-fast turnaround at very reasonable prices. The only downside to this place is that they don’t take orders over the phone and they don’t take orders online either. Bonus Tip: La Gran Via is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. More...
Their cake. Is awesome
It's a decent bakery. 4 stars mostly because everything is pretty tasty. Chocolate pudding, and cannolis aren't all that great and some cookies have been stale before so minus a star for that. I get annoyed that many workers don't know English though, so always have to come in and point out what I want. The good stuff here is the pastellios! Flakey and stuffed with guava then topped with powdered sugar... I always get the mini ones they're like 3 for $1 and so so good. They also make really good cakes! I was impressed as I expected it to mostly taste like icing but they don't use an overly sweet icing so you can actually enjoy the whole piece of cake. They do some impressive decorating too, much better than the window displays. I ordered a chocolate cake with strawberry filling and they decorated it with chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate crunchies... Pretty heavenly as I didn't have any leftover afterward! They also sell hot food likes sandwiches and coffee and other things like that but I never tried them here. More...
This bakery is amazing. The fact that they are open 24 hours is a big plus. As a party co-ordinator, i have been getting birthday cakes from La Gran for months now and every time the parents are overwhelmed by how well done and delicious the cakes are. Although i work in Manhattan, I trek into brooklyn to pick up the cakes. As a family operated business, they are extremely friendly and courteous. I recommend this bakery 100%. More...
Delicious!!!! I've only had the tres leches and the five leches cakes, and they're perfect. Very reasonably priced too. The staff is very friendly and patient, and I got my engagement party cake here too. Being from Miami, I love a Cuban bakery and am so happy this place is in Brooklyn! More...
I got my sister a custom made cake here or her 21st birthday and it came out so beautiful and it tasted amazing!!!!! She was soooo happy and so was I. And the price was very reasonable. I would definitely get more cakes from here in the future. More...
So I heard about this place via Scoutmob a while back, and my roommate had been talking about how much she wanted cake, so I figured I'd venture out to bring her some good ol' Tres Leches Cake. I went Tres-Leches crazy when I got here. I got so many varieties to bring back to my roommate that she was so excited and already waiting with the gallon of milk when I got home. We tried the Strawberry-Guava Tres Leches, the Dulce de Leche Tres Leches, the Plain Tres Leches, the 5 Leches, the Strawberry-Vanilla Tres Leches, and the Coconut Cake (because we love coconut cake and wish they had a Coconut Tres Leches Cake.) After putting ourselves into a sugar coma, which was totally worth it by the way, we decided that the Dulce de Leche Tres Leches and the 5 Leche Cakes were our favorites. Whenever I crave Tres Leches, I'll definitely be back for their Dulce de Leche Tres Leches and their 5 Leches Cakes. More...
Their tres leches cake is really that awesome and worth the trip to Sunset Park. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, and Betsy really listened to my ideas about a cake for a work party. She came up with a few ideas & the end product was exactly what I wanted. I would definitely come here again, as I'd love to try their other baked goods and w/o a doubt that fantastic tres leches cake! More...
This is some next level sh-t they got going on here. As if three milks wasn't enough, but five milks?! Go for a slice of the cinco leches cake!Counter staff are very friendly, they do a lot of business for their large cakes. I've seen it get pretty busy on the weekends. In summary, I haven't craved milk like this since my nursing days! More...
Tres leches is the bomb!!! And it's open till 5:30 am so no worries ever. First of all, you'll want to instagram all of the cakes, cookies, and goodies. Next, you will want to eat everything. Tres Leches was actually one of the best I've had (they usually get grainy, no?). I'd go out of my way to stock up on 40 cookies next time!A+ More...
I have visited this place a few times, I have ordered a 5 leches cake, yes 5. I have had their cheesecake, flan, 3 leches cake...their coffee and hot chocolate is good as well, the only thing I didn't enjoy too much was the breakfast they prepare there, I have ordered 2 times and they were not the greatest, but as far as their desserts it is the BEST, you cannot go wrong. Their staff is super friendly and hospitable. Prices are not bad they are not expensive. More...
They make really good tres leches and personalized cakes! The tres leches by itself is enough to make me come back here, but if your looking for a personalized cake you won't be disappointed when you go here. They make beautiful cakes and it is also delicious. Not the best place to sit down and enjoy some sweets because it is usually very crowded here with people in and out. But if your looking for cheap and delicious pastry and your in Sunset Park I highly recommend La Gran Via Bakery. More...
I ordered a cake saturday night around 7 and had it picked up by my brother by 10 while it was ready by 8:30. The cake was amazing!! They will be getting more cake orders from me. More...
Pan con ajo ...papá
This place makes the best tres leches cake. Strawberry and mango cake is the best
I love tres leches, it is one of my favorite things in the world. This bakery has about 10 options, with peaches, other fruit or the pure form. I love the options, not best I have ever had but a good product. The cake part is nice and spongy but it didn't fall apart which is a nice feature. The food savory food options looked good and I love the pic menu's just wasn't hungry after the cake! More...
I like this place. I mean, where else can you get 3 tacos, fries, and a soda for about $6?! I get my food then head up to the park. Their tres leches is hit or miss. I guess it depends on who makes it. More...
They made two custom wedding cakes - Not only were they perfectly done and delivered timely they were also DELICIOUS! I'm ordering another custom cake for a Sweet 16!
I'm a huge cake person,and La Gran Via definitely delivered when it came to my wedding cake. Literally, they delivered our cake from BK to our venue in Times Square, the staff was on time and set up our cake as agreed. The cake was beautiful! It was exactly what I requested. It was a four tiers, a little over two feet tall with two flavors and four different fillings. The cake was absolutely delicious, and exceeded our expectations; perfectly moist and the combination of flavors worked great together. Unfortunately, because our wedding was somewhat outdoors the frosting began to melt and had to be kept away until the cutting. I'm sure it wouldn't have happened if we used fondant as opposed to frosting, but it still tasted amazing. I will definitely be sticking with them for all my future cake needs. The owner was also very helpful and patient during my one bridezilla meltdown. We really could not have been any happier with our cake! More...
Wow, I cannot express how good everything is in here!!! My family has been using this bakery since I was a kid, and now that I am adult and my palette has expanded I still come back to this bakery, no matter how far I may be. And their prices...no one can compete. They can definitely keep up with the times. More...
I am a big fan of this place and I will be getting all my cakes from here from now on always!! We needed a cake for my god daughter and this was the third bakery we visited for the task. We got lost finding it cause we are Queens girls but once I called and spoke to someone named Betsy she gave me great directions.So we finally get there and I ask for this Betsy person because I wanted to thank her for her patients and help with finding the place. The young girl working at the counter said she will be right with me.Well turns out she is the owner!!! We waited about 5-10 minutes for her but she was worth the wait. Wow, what excellent customer service! We thanked her for the directions and we started talking cake. She has great affordable packages that you can't really find anywhere else. (trust me, this was our third bakery as mentioned before) We ended up getting package #2, cake for 50 people along with 200 appetizers filled with meat, cheese guava and something with a garlic mixture. She worked with us when telling her exactly what we wanted and and had the patients of a god. (the theme was yo gabba gabba). She assured us everything would be taken care of.I put up a picture for you guys to see and the faces on top we got from Amazon and placed them on ourselves. Cake looked great but what was more important it tasted fantastic! I'm telling you my fellow yelpers I rarely am happy with product PLUS customer service, I mean this place is a win win all around. Come and get your cakes here I WILL! it is worth the drive and you won't regret it. THANK YOU BETSY, SEE YOU AGAIN SOON. =) p.s I believe this place is open 24 hours and cake orders are taken till 9pm.place has been open for a while and is on its third generation. More...
Today I went to have some ham and eggs with the soft delicious bread. Can't forget the coffee. Zulieka has great customer service and she always had a smile. While I sat there she told everyone have a great day. More...
Loved it! Recalling our year spent in Puerto Rico, we were hankering for some pastelitos de guayaba and found this on yelp. Made the trek and it was worth it. Customer service is great as are all the wonderful pastries. Cafe con leche and a slice of their "regular" cake was outstanding. Only took off one star since the small counter where you can sit had some previous customer's trash on it. This looks like a well-established neighborhood place, as it was founded in 1978! Looking forward to ordering a specialty cake soon. More...
Nothing but great things to say about this bakery! Betsy (owner) is very accommodating, personal and sweet! She helped me customize just the right cake for my boyfriends birthday. He is a VERY picky person and he devoured the leftovers! The cake came out beyond delicious, moist, rich and light on the stomach. Everyone at the party loved the cake as well. It was a huge hit!I also had their red velvet, dolce de leche, strawberry cheesecake, chocolate covered cheesecake, pineapple and coconut cakes (I'm greedy) and all taste amazing! What I love the most about this bakery is knowing, based on the taste of the cakes, that all ingredients used are of good quality and are fresh. More...
This bakery is the ONLY bakery my family and I use for our countless functions over the years. The cakes taste fantastic, they work with you on designing the cakes and are willing to do anything you ask. The turnaround for cakes is really fast and their prices cannot be beat for those of us on a budget. We LOVE La Gran Via!! More...
I love it
I love this place! I always get my cakes from here. The staff is very friendly, the prices are fair and the cakes are delicious.
After reading the reviews here, I was very excited to try it out. But very disappointing. I tried Tres Leches cake, and I know very well how it is supposed to taste like. It was not AT ALL spongy, how it is supposed to be. Rather a bread soaked in sickeningly sweet milk, which smelt way too milky.I have experienced better "bakeries". Not too keen on going there again.Update:I like the service because they truly care of the customer is not happy and try to remedy. More...
Okay I have been coming here for 10+ years and their cakes are very good and its satisfies your urge for "something sweet"! Their plain tres leches cake is superb! They know what they are doing in that department. For parties, I order a whole cake and it's always finished by the end of the night! The counter people are very nice and complete the orders within minutes. In these type of places there is such a huge customer base, its best to know what you want and not come in there "hemming and haaaaaaaing!" (Shout out to grandma for that one!)Go in order a few :-) slices because one will definitely not be enough. *never any parking in the radius, park one block over and walk in.* *_* More...
I just don't understand why ANYONE would give this place less than three stars! This bakery is amazing. I was able to visit LGV because my cousin lives in Brooklyn and when I went to go visit her she recommended it (I'm from Miami...I know what amazing Cuban pastries taste like)...and this...THIS...is the REAL deal! Pros: Amazing guava/cheese pastries! Open 24 hours...YESS!! Drunk munchies ;)Pan.Con.Bistec...TRUST ME! amazing sandwich made with a skirt steak, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and onion...yumm!Best Tres Leches I've ever tried! It's to die for! Tacos!! Amazing. They apparently can make any cake...(shaped like Coach purses, Elmo, etc. They have pictures in the bakery of their impressive creations)Cons:Only one I can think of is that it might be hard to find parking. Who cares? Walk a few blocks. Overall, I was really impressed that Brooklyn has a Cuban bakery that is still thriving. I love my fellow Cubanos and I totally support/recommend these folks. More...
Like a devout Muslim making a Hajj, I found my pilgrimage to Sunset Park soul transforming. I finally found my "tres leches" Mecca. I have a weakness for "tres leches" cake. I would convert to a right wing conservative, NRA member and a Republican if I knew those were the things keeping me from my beloved "tres leches" cake. Well thank Allah the world has not come to that...just yet. We were on a Taco Crawl here in Sunset Park and we passed by a few "panaderias" and I couldn't resist them. I looked on my yelp app, and this place popped up as getting good reviews. So, I dragged my entourage into this bakery to find some sugary "goodies."I like bustling happening places. I felt like I was at the race tracks. There were people shouting and waving dollar bills, and well the scene was just fantastic. I ordered a "tres leches" cake and immediately the counter help knew she was dealing with an amateur. I am used to places that only carry ONE kind of tres leches cake. But here, there were two rows of cakes dedicated to the tres leches persuasion. I thought I died and had gone to Nirvana. There was plain tres leches, dulce de leche with tres leches, fresa tres leches, chocolate tres leches. You name the kind of tres leches you wanted, and La Gran Via delivered. They knew their tres leches cakes and I was in heaven. I stood there dumbfounded for a few seconds, and then decided on the dulce de leche with tres leches cake. I was fast heading into a diabetic coma.This was one of the best tres leches cake I have devoured in a long time. I am usually pretty pathetic and buy a slice fro Whole Foods, but this place is so much better and so much cheaper. For $2.25, you too can be in a diabetic coma! More...
The Guayaba con queso pastries are delicious. Certainly on par with one of the best Cuban bakeries in California. We also tried the cannolis, those were okay, nothing to be blown away by, but then again, that's an Italian pastry, and this is a Cuban Bakery.
they make orange juice with natural oranges ....that will go good with a torta de milanesa
Haven't tried the pastries yet, but the sandwiches are very good and very very cheap. $2-$4 for most of them.
I've been going to this place since I was a young boy, the sandwiches are good, the shakes, the cakes are good. Great place to buy for that occasion. Friendly staff, but sometimes they take their sweet time. More...
Yum yum yum. Unable to decide between coconut cake and a cake layered with guava and coated in icing (think a thick coat of krispy kreme donut glaze) I wisely got them both. And paid $2.50. For both slices of cake. Um, thank you Brooklyn for being so cheaply reasonable. Anyway, both were delicious, as was my friend's chocolate cinco leches cake (don't try to ask how they get 5 milks in there, just eat it). Actual quote, "oh, I was supposed to only eat half of each . . . oops." More...
It's a hole in the wall in the middle of possibly the worst double parking area, BUT you need to come in and spend at least $10 on getting fat off their pastries.Almost every other weekend my sister and I come here to load up on guava & cheese pastries, beef pastries, cheese pastries, elephant ears, cakes, coffee.......and clearly the list goes on and on.The best thing about this place is that it is super cheap and super delicious. If your ever in the area, don't bother going to the nice, romantic places in Hoboken, stick to the hole in the walls for some real Cuban delights. P.s. I'm pretty sure the staff here doesn't know a lick of English...so it'll be a cultural experience as well! :) More...
This place is tiny, but they do make great desserts at amazingly low prices. I treated myself to a slice of their famous tres leches cake with cafe con leche. If you have a super sweet tooth, check this place out. You'll feel like a kid in a candy store. More...
Fantastic Cafe con Leche, and their donuts (3 for a dollar) are greasy goodness. The carrot cake (pan de zanahoria) is REALLY good. It's casual, and it has a few stools for sitting, but it's really for take-out. The staff is friendly and helpful with choosing sweets. :) More...
