No matter if you're from Romania or not, Vatra Ardealului is THE PLACE for all kind of sweets!!! Krantz cake, choux a la creme or chocolate cake are amaizing!!! Is not such a fancy place, but worth it!! Is right a cross the street from Biserica Neagra, few steps from Piata Sfatului

Everything they serve in this place it's just amazing. If I were to recommend something... well, I would have to recommend everything. The service is great, the ladies working there are really nice. It's a bit pricey but worth EVERY penny. I never ever miss this place when I visit Brasov. Last time we were there, my boyfriend and I,... More

Every time I go to Brasov, I go to this place too. The sweets and cookies are made in the location's own laboratory and they are very fresh. Best cookies in the region-some of them are more expensive than others because are sold price by kg but still they are very very good so they deserve the price. I like... More

Don't miss this great little bakery for a mouth-watering selection of Romanian treats. Best of the bunch was the Savarina, a very traditional bun made with Vanilla syrup, creme, and Jam - nothing like a donut, and utterly delicious!

WooW! If you ever go to Brasov, this is definitely a place where you should come and eat cakes! Recommendations: Cremsnit, Savarina, Amandina, Ecler. It a little bit expensive if you relate the price to the Romanian market, but it worth it!

Looks like a cake shop from '80 (but in a bad way), with old refrigerators.. Of course they don't accept cards.

I'm totaly mesmerised by this place. You can't say you were in Brasov without tasting a cake here. I love it.I want to be a child again and not to care about what I eat. Tradition, professionalism, art, passion, chic, savory...these are a one place, named Vatra Ardealului. It feels like home, in my mothers kitchen. The smell of this... More

Fabulous pastry, don't miss it. Chocolate ice cream, excellent. We were there twice , it was so hard to choose. Many cakes and pastries were filled with whipped cream. A little on the expensive side but worth it.

Good value. Had a large slice of cake plus bar of chocolate with nuts for just LEI 26. The cake was a bit sweet for me but the dark chocolate with hazelnuts was excellent.

The cakes are very tasty, the prices actually a bit high. I think it's worth it, being a clean place with friendly staff, a place where you will have a good time. Every time I go there I try something new and I've never been disappointed.
