About
We did not invent the Chimney Cake; its origins go back over 300 years in Hungary. What we did do though is take it to another level of deliciousness! We are a family-owned, boutique bakery that makes Chimney Cakes from scratch each & every day! Every single chimney cake is prepared, hand rolled, & baked from scratch each day & throughout the day. When you enter Niagara on the Lake & turn down Queen Street, just follow the smell of freshly baked goodness & you’ll find us! When you walk in to our bakeshop you get to see firsthand the entire process right before your eyes — the mixing, the rolling, the rising, the baking, the toppings & fillings! We do variety of Sweet Chimneys like our Cinnamon

A very delicious ham and cheese sandwich on a soft, squishy bun. So yummy. Very busy place with lots of sweet and savoury options.

There was a line right out the door on Sunday at noon but the food was worth the wait. Not inexpensive ($38.70); for a Black Forest ham & cheese, a Hungarian Salami and a Nutella & walnut chimney but they were all fresh and delicious...so worth the money. We will definitely return.More

Their sandwiches, served in a smaller cheese encrusted chimney, are out of this world. Generous portions of meat with fresh veggies and a great mayo. Everyday.

What can I say other than AMAZING! I have had take out from there on 4 occasions and each time it was exceptional. Their sandwiches are fresh and the bread is light and flavorful. No need to ask for anything other than the type of...meat you would like as they pair the perfect fresh ingredients to make this probably one of the BEST sandwiches I've ever had. Highly recommend. I know I can't wait to go back.More

Better known as chimney cakes here in Canada, the Budapest Bakery in Niagara on the Lake has them hot off the burner, with many varieties to please all.

Chimney Cakes are tasty, and are great for a quick snack! Chimney Sausage rolls have a delicious soft dough with a crispy exterior, which is delicious. The pricing is reasonable for the quality and fresh ingredients, but this isn’t that suitable if you’re going for...a lower budget for lunch. Quick note: there is no seating in the building nor a patio. You have to find seats outside, or somewhere else. Overall, I highly recommend Budapest Bakery!More

They specialize in Chimney Cakes, which can be ordered at the counter as sweet or savory. We purchased 2 Ham & Swiss on the Old Cheddar Chimney Bun. They were excellent!

My grandparents immigrated to Canada from Hungary, and as a teenager, I remember them taking me back to Hungary to visit our family still living there. We got Chimney Cakes and I will never forget thinking that they were the most delicious things I had...ever tasted in my life. Eating these Chimney Cakes from The Budapest Bakery brought me back to that trip, and to the feeling of family, and delicious treats, and everything wonderful. They tasted exactly the same as I remember from about 15 years ago. You can get them regular with cinnamon sugar, or you can get so many other sweet or savory flavors. The options are crazy! This place also has many different types of sandwiches and lunch items, as well as a vinegar and olive oil store right attached to it. Right downtown Niagara-On-The-Lake.More

Bought a chimney sandwich which was very tasty. They’re freshly made to order so you’ll have to wait a little bit but so worth it. Wish I had time to try other things on the menu.

Great place in the old town to stop for lunch. The chimney cakes and sandwiches are all freshly made daily, and you can see them making the chimney cakes through the glass. Lots of flavours to choose from and all are very tasty!

My family is from Hungary but I live in Montreal now. Anytime I go to Niagara, I always make a point to stop by Budapest Bakeshop and get a few chimney cakes. I'm a proud Hungarian and love the classics they offer, but also enjoy...trying new and creative items they offer. They are a nice addition to the community, just wish they weren't this far. Service has also been very polite and professional every time I go. Keep up the great work!!More
