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
This place saved us from a huge thunderstorm! It has a very very nice selection of pastries -- all which look original and fresh -- and coffee, etc. However, the place is pretty small so the tables are tiny and you feel like you are...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
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
