“Leli’s is owned by the family that used to own JMJ  bakery in LIC.  JMJ didn’t have a sit down cafe so many people maybe didn’t know about it but I was lucky enough to have a boyfriend (now husband) in the know who knew enough to buy my birthday cakes there (always amazing) and then we knew enough to have them create our wedding cupcakes.  I was pretty sad when they moved the production operation to The Bronx, but was happy for them that they were doing so well that they needed to expand…

I’m thrilled to find out that they’ve come back to Astoria, with a cafe/bakery.”—Jenifer F., Astoria, NY
