FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A unique new bakery in Fort Wayne will open west of downtown on January 28.
Chimney Cakes Bakery and Caffe will open soon on West Main Street. Some may recall having the chimney cakes at Farmer’s Markets, but this will be the first brick and mortar location for the business.
Opening day on Saturday, January 28 will have special hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Then hours on Sunday, January 29 will be from noon to 4 p.m. There will be complimentary espresso shots with the purchase of a chimney cake during opening weekend.
Local singer/songwriter Grace Josephine Cook will also be performing live music.
The new bakery is a taste of home for owner Timea Csibi. Chimney cakes are a sweet treat that originated in Transylvania and are popular throughout Europe.
Csibi and her family moved to the United State from Hungary in 2014 and settled in Fort Wayne in 2017. Now, she’ll share part of her heritage with her new home.
A chimney cake is a large, hollow spiral of dough that’s hand rolled and baked on a special wooden cylinder. They’re most often covered in sugar or cinnamon and are sweet, but the bakery plans to make some savory ones too.
Chimney Cake Bakery & Caffe, located at 1202 W. Main St.
