  1. Country Style on Bloor has some desserts that you will find are traditional - not a huge selection but the staples are there.

    Know it?

      Thanks KrissyB. I have actually eaten at Country Style about two or three years ago and I was not impressed. Now to be fair, I am Hungarian, grew up eating fabulous Hungarian food from my grandmother and have had fabulous meals in Hungary too so I may have very high expectations... As for the desserts, we didn't try any so maybe those are better... Thanks for the suggestion.

    2. Sweet Gallery has some Hungarian cakes and pastries -

        Sweet Gallery is one of those places where everything has always looked gorgeous, but I've never found their baking to taste very good.

          I've had Sweet Gallery's dobos cake MANY times, it's not bad...

        2. Try Blue Danube Sausage House. They have Dobos, poppy rolls etc.

          1. The Honey Bear in North York has a selection of pastries - small but good and varied. A great selection of Hungarian staples too. It's on Sheppard near Willowdale Avenue.

              Thanks for the tips everyone, I will definitely be checking them all out!

            2. Does anyone know what happened to Schillings (I think that's what it was called)? It used to be on the Danforth (south side), just east of Broadview. Is it really gone, or did they re-locate?

                They went under a couple of years ago following a drastic cut in the quality of their products. I was distressed when the quality tanked, but didn't miss them at all when they actually closed.
