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.

I have many happy memories of coffee and strudel at the HPS from my wife's days when she was a student at Barnard and Columbia. Now, with my daughter a student at Barnard, as well, it was great to return. The coffee is still very...More

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

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

A perfect follow-up to the V&T Restaurant next door on Amsterdam Avenue. Excellent fresh pastry, using real cream, reasonably priced to the quality. Can eat in or take out, with nice selection of coffee, tea.

Large selection of delicious looking cakes and pastries but the taste was somewhat disappointing. We ordered a poppy seed strudel and a slice of dobosh cake. Both we ok but not more than that. A cool place near Columbia university, full of students with books...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 !!
Do they have macosh, cacosh, and diosh?
