The third shop of the Kemenes family business was opened last Sunday.  The flavors of home made – Kemenes confectionery is from now on at the fingertips for locals and mostly for foreigners to be aquainted within the Hungarian flavors of cakes and a light lunch at the newly open bistro in the neighborhood area of the Great Market Hall, District IX., 9. Vámház Blvd. Budapest.

The company earned its fame in less than a decade. They opened their first confectionery in 2015. Besides the sweets and cakes the newest unit offers hot meals to its visitors, making it the perfect place for both a cup of coffee. The philosophy of Kemenes is to create a familiar atmosphere and serve “home-cooked” food made only from natural ingredients without any preservatives, flavor enhancer or bulking agent.

Edith Kemenes, the founder of the company manages the business with the help of her twon daughters, Tímea and Noémi, and the love for cooking and baking was passed on to her  granddaughters as well. Besides the traditionally home-made cakes, like the Gerbeaud slice or apple pie, modern confectionery like macarons, cheesecake and mousse can be found on the menu of the new Kemenes unit, as well as light meals, perfect for lunch.

The brand’s inspiring story started when during the Great Recession Edith, who was then in her 50’s, was forced to find a new path in life after her previous business went bankrupt. She has always loved cooking and baking and has always received compliments, so when she had to set a new goal, she decided to open a confectionery where visitors can taste the flavors of home. Her two daughters, a lawyer and a teacher are actively helping their mother ever since she started. “Family is the most important thing for us, we have a strong sense of belonging – our entire family lives on the same land in separate buildings and Sunday lunches are sacred and inviolable for us. This is something that we always make time for, even in this fast-paced world” – told Edith, who is very proud of her daughters and grandchildren. The Kemenes
family is confident that the Vámház boulevard shop will soon be as popular with the audience as the other two units, and they are already planning on opening another confectionery in the Buda district.
