Dobos Torte in Toronto?

Otonabee Mar 26, 2011 02:51 PM

So a Hungarian friend of mine is always looking for a good spot to get Dobos Torte (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dobos_torte)

So far I have found it at the Coffee Mill but I am trying to see where else I can find this. I know Hamilton has a few good spots I am trying to source it closer. Any suggestions are very appreciated!

    Now, I have no idea if it's any good, but Cozy Café, on the south side of Danforth west of Woodbine, makes Dobos Torte.

        Solero Mediterranean Bakery (name is misleading, actually more Serbian/E European) had Dobos - good though the top is not very brittly caramelized. They are on the S side of Dundas just at the E corner of H Park.
        Also it is always available at the celebrated Hungarian deli the Blue Danube in Etobicoke - Chauncey just W of Islington. Theirs has a nice brittle top.

          Not as nice as I remember from their Bloor W shop. Some(most?) of the Bering stuff can be previously frozen.

          This is what you're looking for. I got it for my mom's b-day last year. Amazing. I love the crisp caramel on top, which he makes with small grooves for easy slicing.


          They aren't cheap ($35 for a small cake I think?), but the cakes are all handmade and they really good.

            I saw those, glad to hear they are really good. The caramel part on top was one of the parts Paul specifically mentioned.

              Not in Toronto, but the best Dobos Torte I've had in the GTA is at The Apricot Tree in Mississauga.

                Blue Danube in Etobicoke has Dobos Torte as well as lots of other Hungarian goodies.

                  Country Style on Bloor east of Bathurst has Dobos Torte by the slice.
