Budapest Bakeshop

signature-chimney-sandwiches.jpeg

Budapest Bakeshop is a specialized bakery that focuses on Hungarian Chimney Cakes known as Kürtőskalács in Hungarian. These are long strands of sweet, yeasted dough that we prepare and make multiple times throughout the day. The dough then gets wrapped around a dowel and baked on a specialized rotisserie style oven. When they come out of the oven, the dowel is removed, producing a hollow, golden-brown cake, steaming hot like a chimney that’s pulled apart to eat!

 

The Sweet Chimneys range from our classic Cinnamon and Sugar to Walnut to decked out ones with a spread inside like our famous Nutella and Walnut Chimney! The delicious savory options are combinations like Jalapeno & Cheddar, Monterey Jack & Pepperoni to our now famous Chimney Sandwiches where we take our Aged Cheddar & Herb Chimney – cut it open and fill it with freshly sliced meats, local Ontario produce, and our house-made mayo!

 

Come watch as we prepare, roll, and bakes our Chimney Cakes right before your eyes in our large, open kitchen on Queen Street in Niagara on the Lake!

 

We have the perfect snack, grab-n-go breakfast, or lunch or even a light dinner!

 

A bakery experience like no other in Canada!
