Small coffee and pastry shop on Amsterdam Ave. They serve wonderful pastries we remember from our childhood growing up in Prague. If you are visiting the St. John Divine Cathedral this small place is just across the street on the corner of the Cathedral Parkway....More

We picked up two hamentoshen after visiting the cathedral across the street. They were way huge but tasty. Apricot was good. Walnut, an unusual flavor, was delicious. Place seems packed all the time.

The Hungarian Pastry shop is small but worth a visit for quiet respite and a sugar hit. My friend and I enjoyed a delicious coffee and breakfast there. The café itself is quite small, so be prepared to wait a little, or arrive early and...More

Just found this place today, after many, many years in NYC, shame on us. They had pastries we used to buy many years ago back home in the Transylvanian city of Brașov. Delicious. Authentic, the real taste. The place is not pretentious, but it was...More

There's usually a lot going on at the Hungarian pastry Shop. It's frequented by Columbia students/ researchers/ professors, and sometimes tourists/ visitors from the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and I suspect also the staff of the nearby hospital. Here's my disclaimer: I used...More

Finally after 3 weeks I stumble across this delightful understated but clearly local pastry cafe after seeing St John the Divine - as in cathedral. Fresh pastry & cakes in a ordinary delightful space. Finally enjoy a delicious cake with a good coffee. The service...More

When I was there I did not see any signs saying that certain pastries were gluten free...that's not to say they don't have it. I'd go and just ask them. Have fun !!
