Pékműhely Bartók

Pékműhely's motto "all you need for a good bread is excellent flour, water, salt, sourdough, and a pinch of love" encapsulates the candid spirit of this unassuming Budapest bakery, which has two additional locations. Unlike other craft bakeries with on-trend minimalist design, here the focus is purely on the treasures of the oven.

Take the whole wheat bread, for example: the crunchy crust yields to a tender, air pocket-filled interior that impars the unmistakable tang of sourdough. But best of all is the kakaós csiga; I know people who journey from the other side of the city for this tiny but delicious chocolate roll (often spiked with sour cherries).
