Best new bakeries in town
Posted by Budnews · Sep 13, 2017

Bread is the most ordinary thing, but good bread is something quite rare.

Bakery culture is somehow a French thing in our mind: nice slim people consuming their morning croissant with coffee… Fortunately the high quality bakery products conquered Europe and Hungary: newer and newer bakeries open their doors, and these places surely worth visiting. Now we collected 3 newbies of Budapest, which are perfect destinations for a good brunch or a quick morning breakfast.

Takács Bakery

The owner, Márk Takács started to experiment with additive-free breads a year ago, and his experiment turned out really good. At Takács Bakery breads are made from 100% Hungarian cereals, whether it is spelled flour or the traditional white one. Keeping the traditions, all of the products are handmade, with a long ripening time and leavening. Making a bread takes about 30 hours from kneading to baking. Thanks to this, all bread will be really crunchy, slightly spicy, with caramelized peel and juicy, soft inside. Unlike today's breads, they don’t use any preservatives and additives nor yeast, as they use their own home-made sourdough. On the shelves we find semi-brown, seedy, whole grain, rye, combined flour breads and a real dense, 60% whole grain bread. They also offer sandwiches, craft beers, wines and lemonades to make the offer more colorful.

Fekete Bakery

Fekete bakery is totally a different thing: they aren’t specialized for bread, but are targeting breakfast: milk, flat white, good quality breakfast and fresh pastries that can be consumed on the go. The supply will always include 15-16 salty and sweet pastries, which are not yet homemade, but after the infrastructure improvements this year, or at the beginning of next year, they will expand with their own small bakery. They have a special feature: pastries cannot be found behind a counter, but in small wood trays on the wall, so we can choose the most sympathetic one. You can choose classic or filled croissants, “baskets”, richly filled leaves… For the time being, there are no alternative (gluten-free, carbohydrate-reduced or vegan) products, but as customers demand, they will expand the offer.

Három tarka macska (Three Mottled Cat)

Három Tarka Macska is real bakery. It’s not a „show” one, not a franchise, they don’t have cupcakes or unicorn shakes, but they do have one of the best bread of the city. The bread is made with real leaven, the rye bread contains 70% of rye, and the baguette is exactly the same you would by in Paris. By the way, the whole place has some Parisian feeling. Mainly because of the high-quality bakery products, but also because of it’s friendly, nice surrounding. And because Pierre, the baker's „conductor” who is French and you can often hear him behind the scenes. Három tarka macska is a classic artisan bakery with delicacies from carefully selected flours. They work with 10 different types of flours that come from a French mill. The offer is really wide: they have rustic buns, crescent rolls that are exactly the same we remember from our childhood, baguettes, morning menus, so it’s even perfect for a Sunday brunch.
