    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.

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

            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.

              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.

                My wife and I have had the Dobos Torte from Stubbe Chocolates at 653 Dupont near Christie; it’s a very good torte. Stubbe also does other tortes; I believe that Stubbe does mostly tortes and very few if any gateaux. We’ve purchase many tortes from Stubbe, and we have never been let down.

                I’m unsure if Stubbe does any other Hungarian tortes, but I’m sure if you ask they may be able to help you out.
