This café/bakery specializes in Kürtőskalács, a sweet, golden brown, spiral-shaped pastry that is mostly sold in Hungary at festivals and markets. The recipe comes from Transylvania from the Székely, an ethnic group who used to bake Kürtőskalács for festive occasions, like weddings, christenings and Christmas. Mastering the kürtőskalács-baking-technique requires some special tools, including custom-made wooden pins, so it's not a pastry you would bake at home. At Molnár’s you can watch the entire baking process at their onsite bakery, where the pastry is always made fresh.
