Who Is Eva?

Born and raised in Budapest, Eva left Hungary during the revolution of 1956. She made her way to Canada with her husband and children, leaving everything else behind.

Co-founders Kristin and Justin tried one of grandma Eva’s favourite childhood treats, kürtőskalács, on a family trip to Budapest – and they were completely moved by the taste and experience. They immediately trained at a traditional Chimney Cake facility and then returned to Canada to work with Eva and perfect a dough recipe.

They opened the first Eva’s food truck in 2015, and quickly gained popularity. After many high-profile pop-ups, the flagship Eva’s location opened in early 2017 at 454 Bloor W, Toronto.

Eva’s now operates multiple locations in the Greater Toronto Area, and there are three locations on Canada’s east coast in Halifax, Nova Scotia and St John’s, Newfoundland.

Eva's Core Product: The Best Pastry You've Ever Tried

Our core product is the Chimney Cake (kürtőskalács) – a freshly baked, Hungarian specialty.  A delicious and unique, bread-like freshly baked Hungarian pastry, named after its hollow, cylindrical shape. They have a satisfying crunch on the outside and a soft, fluffy dough on the inside.

We put a lot of attention and detail into every
Chimney Cake we serve:

• Each one is hand-rolled and baked fresh to order
• Our dough is vegan and uses just 7, all-natural ingredients: unbleached flour, filtered water, organic cane sugar, sunflower oil, lemon, fresh yeast and sea salt.
• Many of our toppings are made from scratch by our in-house.

We are proud to bring this traditional Hungarian treat to the world with an Eva’s take on it.

Eva's Menu: Vegan and Dairy Delights

We have designed a simple menu with Chimney Cakes and our famous Chimney Cones®.

We offer vegan options as much as possible and we allow customers to make substitutes and customize their order with toppings and spreads.

We also have developed a savoury option, the Chimwich®, to transform our cones into delicious sandwiches.

Customers Love Eva's:
