Lassen & Hennigs

The place has gone downhill. Picked up a few pies and cakes for Thanksgiving dinner and 2 out of 4 were stale. Should have been freshily baked. So long!

I've been frequenting Lassen & Hennigs for years. Most of their food is rather good. some of it is even excellent. But I thought people should know that their pies are consistently poor and if not made from canned fruit filling, they've mastered making it taste like it was. Especially poor is the coconut pie, which they always have. I've tried it on three occasions and each time it was a broken custard, where you could strongly taste the egg. The crusts on all their pies are always undercooked - probably because they do not know that for a good crust you must blind bake it before filling.

I use Lassen and Hennings frequently to cater our meetings. Deliveries are always prompt and employes courteous. The food is consistently fresh, delicious and presented in a lovely manner. They are completely reliable.

This place is not very big, but everything they serve is 100% fresh and good. Honestly. I have this place cater every single one of my parties because the food is spectacular. The sandwiches are groaning big. The deli food is wholesome and flavorful. The Tiramisu cake is out of this world. The Chocolate Decadence is on another planet. The brothers who own this place also own Monty Q's further east on Montague Street, another one of my favorite places. We are lucky to have this lovely gem in Brooklyn Heights.

Arguably the best sandwich spot in the neighborhood. The signature sandwiches are delicious, and the deli sandwiches are great as well. Additionally, the prepackaged sides/entrees are a good buy I'm a big fan of the various potato side dishes. The only negative is the egg sandwiches for some reason they are hit or miss, as I've repeatedly gotten egg sandwiches from here which were just bad (go next door to the bagel place). Finally, the staff is very courteous.

This is a wonderful place to go for lunch. It is purely take out and delivery though- there is no seating. I recommend getting a fresh sandwich and eating on the Brooklyn Promenade- which is just down Montague Street!
