Hungarian celebrates 50th anniversary with 50-cent pastries
It’s 4/20. You’re all stocked up on Doritos and you’ve made your Jimi Hendrix playlist on iTunes. You’re just missing one thing…a sugary treat from The Hungarian Pastry Shop. This year, 4/20 holds a slightly greater significance as the bakery and cafe celebrates its 50th anniversary. To celebrate and thank their customers, the shop will be selling pastries and drinks for 50 cents from 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Join generations of intellectuals, artists, and thinkers and be a part of the epicenter of MoHi’s famous cultural hub. Read the full story in print here. Spectrum sat down with Philip Binioris, whose father has owned the shop for the last 35 years. Interview after the jump.
Spectrum: So you’ve had 50 great years, any plans for the next 50?
Philip Binioris: Assuming we will still be around, we are going to do exactly the same thing.
Spectrum: And what is that?
PB: Provide a great space for our customers.
Spectrum: Clearly you have been doing something right.
PB: Consistency is what we do right. Consistency in atmosphere and space. When we do things wrong we don’t do them again. The longer you stick around the more value you get, so we’re just going to be adding to what we already have.
Spectrum: What would you like to tell your customers who will be celebrating with you?
PB: Thank you. The customers are what make this place what it is.
Celebrate 4/20 with some succulent munchies from Hungarian. With delicious pastries like cherry-cheese strudel, how can you go wrong?
