Malek's is a bakery on Monroe Avenue. It is under kosher supervision by Rabbi Avraham Mammon. Currently producing pareve items only until renovations to the dairy kitchen are complete.

The bakery was purchased in January 2022 by Hillel Community Day School;,some new items have been added although bakery items are expected to remain the same. Malek's was founded in 1977 by Lea Malek, and owned and operated from 2011 until 2022 by Hoang Ngo, who helped the new owners with the transition.

The breakfast pastry selection is amazing, fresh and delectable. I have not tried their bread but the selection is good. The Danish are particularly good and the flourless almond horns are really yummy. —YanaLevin

2008-04-10 20:10:47   I've been going to Malek's for 30 of my 31 years and have always loved most of what they do. Recently discovered how good their chocolate cake
is. WOW! Definitely give it a shot... you won't be disappointed! —DavidGottfried

2009-06-02 09:45:39   When I hear people say they don't like cheese danish, I know what they've tasted in the past: Clammy cellophane-wrapped imitations covered in slimy icing from the old style thruway rest areas or the continental breakfast bar at a Hampton Inn. Forget that nonsense. If you're not a religious person, you will be changed forever by the cheese danish at Malek's. After you shop here, go across the street to Brownstein's for some real bagels made the way they're supposed to. Everyone knows Wegman's is just kidding with their bagel recipe. —SamKatt
