Palacsinta is Hungarian for crepe, and that is precisely what Maria Nagy and company excel at in the parking lot at the corner of McClendon and Oakdale in Candler Park from around lunchtime to early evening on Friday, Saturday and Sunday each weekend. On my commute to the train by foot, I usually stop in for a Bambi (no-ice, chilled, mellow) raspberry drink and a decadent Nutella crepe. The melting hazelnut and chocolate is a big winner.

Palacsinta offers raspberry, strawberry and lemon curd as other sweet crepe flavors and also features several different authentic Hungarian savory crepes. They have coffee, water and sodas to drink and fun outdoor, covered seating on a great Atlanta intersection.

I came hungry last weekend, and a bountiful basket of bacon biscuits awaited. I had three but should’ve kept it to two because Maria prepared Langos for me, an amazing fried bread with a funnel cake-like consistency, traditionally garnished with sour cream, garlic salt and shredded cheese.

Palacsinta is also offering fresh bread to the public early Friday mornings. Enjoy all the delights of this culinary and cultural Atlanta hidden gem.
