Overview

Jakob’s Basler Leckerly is a true cookie pioneer: the oldest cookie manufacturing company in Switzerland was founded in 1753 and in continuous operation. The recipe of our cookies was passed from generation to generation since the company's foundation. Still today, the Jakob’s Basler Leckerly are authentically manufactured in the old town of Basel. The gourmet cookies are ideal accompaniments with deserts and coffee. The Basler Leckerly are also a tasty snack during a break.

Leckerly is a sweet speciality from Basel. Jakob‘s definitely makes the best in town, especially the chocolat-coated ones! The service is friendly, competent and impeccable. The shop is clean. The shop is not slap-bang in the centre of town but every minute and meter getting...More

We tried Jakob‘s Basler Läckerli and were very much surprised by the excellent quality of the product. My wife thought the ones with almonds the best while I opted for the chocolate ones. If you are in the neighbourhood, it is worth a stop to...More

We had the pleasure to taste Jakob's Leckerly recently. As locals, we have tasted many different Leckerly over the years, and can thus safely state that Jakob's recipe is by far the best in town (esp. the slightly softer consistency). In addition, the high variety...More

A real treasure! It is the city's oldest, most traditional bakery for Basel's famous Leckerly, a spice biscuit made of almonds, honey and candied peel. The unassuming storefront makes it somewhat a place for insiders, and you should not miss it out. I've tried Leckerly...More

From outside the place seems rather inconspicuous at the very least, but for connoisseurs of the local Basel cookies, it’s a true insider tip. Cookies are still hand-made and based only on natural ingredients, which give them a unique flavor compared to the industrially produced...More

I normally don't eat many sweets but I make an exception for these Swiss treats!! They are the best Basler Läckerli I have ever had. I highly recommend these delicious biscuits, also as gifts for family and friends.
