What are Chimney Cakes?



A chimney cake is an authentic European pastry. It’s known for its shape, sweetness and deliciousness. It can be enjoyed alone, with coffee / tea, filled with ice cream, Nutella, fruit and more! Visit us at the Emporium to see how they’re baked, what gives them the unique shape, why they’re called chimney cakes and to learn about the history!

Traditionally, known as Kürtöskalács, customers are in awe of their baking process and when they find out the reasoning behind their modern name, “chimney cakes”. Many have expressed so much happiness knowing that the pastry they ate while studying abroad is now local or that the pastry that reminds them of home, can now be accessible at a closer distance. Chimney Cakes are soft on the inside but have a crisp shell, giving them the capability to hold ice cream or any other divine filling! They’re truly quite sensational & entertaining. Start pulling them apart piece by piece and you’ll find yourself enjoying the entire thing!
