Hungarian Pastry Shop: A Slice of the Old World

Sometimes things are right under your nose, and you ignore them. That’s the case with the Hungarian Pastry Shop, an old timer on the Upper West Side that I’ve walked by a million times.

Saturday, I stopped by. Nope, they don’t have a web site. They don’t even have a menu. The names of the cakes, cookies, tortes and such are written on the wall above the case holding the goodies; they also march up a pillar by the front of the seating area.

I ordered a poppy seed strudel. The incredibly flaky pastry was filled with a giant mound of sweetened poppy seed filling. Frankly, for my moderate sweet tooth, it was a bit of a sugar shock, but otherwise, the strudel was totally delicious.

Other offerings include, almond horns, apple and other varieties of strudel, cherry linzer, apple linzer, sacher torte, black forest cake, walnut slice and apricot and raspberry linzer torte. There is also a large assortment of cookies.

You can get something to go, or better yet, sit in the cafe and sip coffee mit schlag!
