  1. Are you looking for this one?

    If so you might try searching with the alternative spellings Dobos and Dobosh.

    1. They are probably referring to Cafe Rococo which is on Lincoln a little west of Guy. Is it Hungarian yes, is it any good - average. Are the desserts good, not really.

      By the way, STILL LOOKING FOR LUDLAB or a recipe.

        Ludlab!!!! It seems to have mysteriously disappeared but there was a recent thread on a bakery in NDG that sells Ludlab as well as other Hungarian delicacies. If memory serves it was near Patricia and Fielding. At the time it did read like a shill post so perhaps our beloved Chowhound Team deleted the posting.

          I don't know how authentic it is but it is also available at kosher bakeries, in particular Montreal Kosher Bakery

            The bakery you are referring to closed a while ago, and the ludlab they made was nothing close to what most of us chows remember from the Coffee Mill and other classic Hungarian restaurants of yore.

              ahhhhh yes the Coffee Mill - good old days
              we were just speaking about it this week as we were there on a monthly basis. yum

        2. You might try Ella's on Westminster in the shopping centre with Delly Boys at the north end of the stores. They have Eastern European pastries. If not, there is also Wawel (pronounced Vavel) on Sherbrooke st W., north east corner of Girouard. It's a Polish bakery but they may have it as well. Good luck.

            Wawel does not carry Hungarian sweets and actually their forte are the polish donuts, paczki. It is actually quite hard to find, if not impossible, good Hungarian baked goods.
