Hungarian in Scottsdale/Phoenix

Fida Nov 1, 2006 12:49 AM

Does Peter's Cafe, apparently also known as Peter's Hungarian Cafe, still exist? I think it used to be in Scottsdale, and I see references for it, but the old number I had is no longer working.

      I have no idea. What sandwich shop? I just know that there used to be a well-regarded Hungarian restaurant some place, and I can't find it.

      By the way, did you know there's a book coming out on Alice Trillin?

        I think you're looking for Peter's Cafe Europe.

        I've had no luck trying to find this place. I've looked around the area on foot on at least two occasions. The address I have is 7125 E 5th Ave,
        Scottsdale, 85251. I didn't have the exact address when I was out trying to hunt it down. After all, it was obviously just West of Scottsdale Road on 5th Ave - I know that area. Maybe not.

        Here's a review:

        I know the Philadelphia Sandwich Co is at 7158 E 5th Ave, Scottsdale, AZ, so, maybe I was looking on the wrong side of the street.

        A google search found a very bad health inspection.

        Maybe this map will help. It looks like it is not right on the street:

        I I passed by it a couple weeks ago and think I saw a new shop opening in its location. :(

        It was located in the middle of a pedestrian square a block or two from Cowboy Ciao.

          Oh, dear. That review (thanks, johnseberg) was fairly recent. Sorry I missed it. Hungarian is relatively hard to find...

          Thanks for your replies!

            I was wondering the same thing! I just bought a 2007 Entertainment Book for the Phx area and was happy to find that it contained a page for Peter's. However, when I called to make a reservation I was told that as of last month it is now an Italian restaurant and the person doesn't know if Peter's moved to another location. UGH! If anyone ends up finding where Peter's went, please post that info here! Or if you can recommend another Hungarian restaurant, because we are craving the food!! Thanks!

              From Főnix Magyarország (Phoenix Arizona Hungarians):


              1) Hungarian spots that no longer exist - Peter's and Eva's

              2) Stanley's Homemade Polish Sausage features Hungarian sausage & specialty foods

              3) I believe Schreiner's Fine Sausage carries Hungarian sausage, but I will try to find out and post contact details in the Facebook group.
