Mishi’s Strudel Bakery & Café (San Pedro)

By in 18: Greater LA

We went to San Pedro one weekend for some antiques hunting. We came upon this Hungarian Cafe Mishi’s Strudel. It was kind of unexpected to find such a “European” place, it was playing classical music and there were Hungarian newspapers lying around. The interior was homey and borderline Euro-kitsch. I could tell their studels must be authentic and good!

I got the European coffee which has whipped cream in it. I think it’s basically a Melange. This brought back memories from Vienna!

They have 18 something different kinds of sweet studels and 3 kinds of savory studels which I never tried before. The menu also has sweet and savory crepes, pasta and goulash (!). We were still full from lunch so we only got desserts and drinks.


Apparently the homemade strudels are made from a family recipe. We got the blueberry Strudel.  It taste wonderful! The skin is paper thin and layered, it was light and fresh tasting. The blueberry fillings weren’t too sweet either. It’s quite large too so we shared it. Should have got another one! The poppy seed one seems really good. Again this brought back fond memories of the wonderful cakes I had at Vienna. Though the studel I had at Vienna had thick skin, Jon said he had thin skin ones like this when living at Austria as a child.

Typing this made me want to go back soon and try the others! I’m really curious about the goulash too.
