Across the street from the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, and just a few blocks away from Columbia University's campus, The Hungarian Pastry Shop is one of the few good coffee houses in Manhattan that hasn't mutated into a Starbucks.
A very pleasant place to relax with coffee and desserts and pastries, The Hungarian Pastry shop has been here for almost 30 years and is a neighborhood landmark.
