Venue Info

This isn't the kind of coffee shop to settle in if you're looking for WiFi and accessible outlets -- instead, take a moment to simply relax at The Hungarian Pastry Shop, where wooden tables surrounded by red and white walls are often filled with Columbia students, and traditional Hungarian pastries are baked fresh. Our suggestion? Replace your laptop with a novel, or your iPad with a date, and take a thick slice of dobos torte, strudel, or baklava to the sidewalk tables that lend a view of St. John the Divine. Unique European and Russian coffee drinks are on the menu, too, including Hungarian coffee that, if you haven’t tried before, is an absolute must: prepare yourself for ultimate comfort in the form of coffee topped with whipped cream and noted with flavors of almond and cinnamon.
