Wonderful choice of cakes and cookies, nicely displayed at the counter. Friendly young staff. Ten minutes walk to the Parliament, close to Margaret Bridge. Functioning wifi.

“You have to go here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

Called in for an afternoon coffee and couldn't resist one if the delicious looking cakes /gateaux. About 15 to choose from. Had a totre and a black forest type and they were both delish. Good service and atmosphere too. Looking forward to returning to try a different cake.

“Delicious pastries, excellent value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

After years of living in Budapest and visiting often, this remains my primary go-to place for mouth-watering delicious pastries at an exceptional value. I recommend it to every visitor who asks me about what to see in the city and have always gotten positive feedback.

This is very much a local's spot. Most people around you will be speaking Hungarian. So if you're looking for a tourist trap, you might as well skip this cafe. But if you're looking for the authentic Hungarian cafe experience while enjoying some exceptional pastries, put this on your itinerary.

The selection of pastries may be a bit overwhelming. Hands-down my favorite is the "Marcipan burgonya", which is a tall brown piece that includes white/yellow cake with chocolate mousse filling and the most generous marzipan coating with powdered cocoa on top. It is divine. But they have lots of other wonderful options like different flavors of mignons (they are like large petit fours as contradictory as that may sound) or chestnut puree, a local favorite.

If you want even more choices or don't have time to sit down, consider going right next door to their take-out counter where the prices are even cheaper. There they also have delicious savory options. That is also the place to put in holiday orders.

“Traditional old European style cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013 via mobile

Good service. We ordered Viennese Apple Strudel and a pastry that looked like a pain au raison that contained chocolate. Coffee was really tasty and so were the cakes. A good pit-stop after visiting Budapest Island.
