This year, National Rugelach Day will be celebrated on Saturday, April 29th. We will be celebrating with The King of Rugelach, Alvin Lee Smalls ~ also known and loved as Mr. Lee, owner of Lee Lee’s Baked Goods in Harlem. It also happens to be Mr. Lee’s 81st Birthday!
The Rugelach comes in apricot, raspberry and chocolate. And depending on the day or time of day, patrons will find an assortment of other baked goods from danish to cakes, coffee and cookies.
Lee Lee’s Baked Goods is located at 283 West 118th Street, just east of Frederick Douglass Boulevard, Harlem. Yes, he delivers.
Did you know that the National Trust for Historic Preservation included Lee Lee’s Bake Shop as part of their twenty-five recipients of ‘Black Historic Small Restaurants’ Grant Program in 2021.
