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 Sugar or Walnut or take it up another level with a spread inside like our popular Nutella & Walnut Chimney! Our Savory Chimneys are unlike anything you have ever had! Try our any of our freshly made Signature Sandwiches! It’s time you tasted our cakes that aren’t really cakes at all!

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I found this little gem, tucked in a side street. We were immediately welcomed and offered free samples, the nice lady told us about the history of the chimney cake, and offered suggestions. Everything is fresh, and unique. So when I see people moan and complain about the price, I roll my eyes. It’s tasty, fresh, unique and worth every penny. We had the cheese roll on ham and Swiss and it was very fresh and took home some other treats. 5 stars all the way!

We visited Budapest Bakery at their new location on the main street for the first time and REALLY enjoyed our lunch. Not normally a fan of “premade” sandwiches, the ham and Swiss and Hungarian salami on aged cheddar and herb chimneys were fresh and delicious. We shared a warm cinnamon sugar chimney for dessert. Not inexpensive, $30.70, but we felt the quality ingredients were worth the cost. There are a few patio tables available outside but, since it was raining, we drove along River Road to a parking area and ate in the car.

I can’t say enough about how delicious these chimney cakes are. The staff are also tremendously friendly and helpful. I spent the last week in NOTL and visited this bake shop a couple of times. My friends and I enjoyed the turkey sandwiches for dinner one night, it was just what we needed after spending a day visiting wineries. The sandwiches were very fresh, loaded with turkey, tomatoes, etc. We also shared a sweet chimney (white chocolate and strawberry - I think). It was absolutely delicious and decadent! I was very disappointed that they were closed on Tuesday morning, I had planned to pick up a few extra goodies to take back to Ottawa with me, but surprisingly, they were closed :(

I ordered the Nutella and walnut chimney at $8.50 and my husband ordered the debrecyna sausage chimney. for $10 The Nutella and walnut was delicious, the pastry was fresh, crisp on the outside while soft on the inside. My husband's sausage chimney was disappointing. The sausage was good, but the pastry was disappointing. It was not nearly as good as the Nutella chimney. It was if it was undercooked, the mouthfeel was somewhat pasty. The cheese that was baked on the outside of this chimney could not salvage the pastry or the overall unsensational experience of this $10 chimney. If it were baked to perfection and filled with something like a bacon & caramelized onion jam or something else in addition to just the sausage, then it would be a winner. At $10 it really felt like an unfair price for what we got.

We came here last year and my husband got a terrible stomach ache for 3 days. The staff had assured us before he ate it that there were no nuts in the cinnamon sugar stacks. We didn’t think it could have been connected. This year we went back again, and we were so excited. I loved my cinnamon sugar stack the last time and I was very enthusiastic. We had planned our entire morning around getting there for exactly 9:30 when they opened, and the stuff were very unfriendly and we weren’t happy with the experience at all. At least the stacks are delicious though right? Wrong! Mine was crunchy and over cooked, and my husbands was better. But immediately, despite asking again about nuts (we always do), he felt a swelling in his mouth and had a stomach ache for 3 hours (he had only had a small amount this time). We called the bakery and asked again “if you have a nut allergy, can you still eat these?” And she said “oh, well you can’t have the sweet chimney stacks. We use the same dowels for all the sweet ones. We make the hazelnut ones and then immediately put the cinnamon sugar ones on The same Dowels.” And the nuts are on the INSIDE of the treats so they make direct contact with the same dowels. This is ridiculous that we had to ask 3 times before someone told us this. We could have avoided two allergic reactions that affected our entire trip. This wasn’t a situation of “we can’t guarantee nut contamination”, because we understand that here’s a risk wherever we go. They CAN guarantee nut contamination! They literally do it on purpose. They should have just said that from the start. It’s a good thing that my husband only had a small Amount this time, as he was suspicious because of our previous experience. We will likely never be able to go here again, and it’s very sad.

First time we stopped here and we were glad we did. Nice, clean place filled with incredible smells welcomes you. Their biggest seller is the Chimney Cakes. They do offer free samples of all the different flavors that they have. We chose the cinnamon sugar and the Aged Cheddar. Both were outstanding. We definitely will be returning !

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!

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!

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.

Stopped here for a quick bite for breakfast at the recommendation of the shuttle driver for our hotel. We had lunch reservations in a couple of hours, so only wanted something very small to hold us over until then. We ordered and shared the “everything” seasoning chimney cake, filled with cream cheese and tomato. It was delicious!! I’d never heard of a chimney cake before this trip. Would definitely stop back there next time we are in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and try a different kind of chimney cake, perhaps one of the sweet options for dessert.

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.

Amazing funnel sandwiches - highly recommend this place! The staff are friendly engaged and make the freshest sandwiches ever eaten. Fun atmosphere while you wait and the staff are polite informative and happy to offer advice and suggestions- I go regularly and can recommend the traditional sugar and cinnamon roll as well as the veggie sandwich and the cheddar jalapeño funnel… amazing! Please consider dropping something in the tip jar - they work hard and always maintain a smile and a pleasant manner no matter how many times they answer the same questions…

Great for a quick bite. We were here in early December 2021 and March 2022. Friendly staff. Both the spicy Genoa sandwich and Hungarian salami sandwich were zesty and the bread (aged chaddar and herb chimney bread) had a nice crisp to it. They were sold out of the Hungarian sausage chimney on both occasions. Will try again next time!

I heard about Budapest Bake Shop through a friend and I have never been so thrilled. Amazing service. Friendly and helpful staff. The chimney cakes are INCREDIBLE! Crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. I highly recommend to locals and out-of-towners to try

I have been to Budapest and can say the chimney did taste exactly like how I remembered. The only issue I had was the service. As it was busy, there was a line up. THere was only one person servicing the customers at the time. I patiently waited my turn. After waiting 5 min, a female customer came in and all of a sudden another "helper" came up to assist. I said that i was here first and she said "sorry i didn't see you". It made me that ethnicity played a role in this. Store should consider putting up a lane where customers should line up.
