It is a great place with great cakes. The prices are high but it doesn't matter. You can try everything and you'll be delighted.

We entered because it had snowed all day and we were very cold. The interior is nice, they have a lot of cakes and sweets you can try. We only had two hot chocolates which were delicious. If you are a tourist and you are tired from all the visiting, this is a nice place to take a break.

I liked the cakes here, they are very delicious :) many Romanian specialities. However, i think it was quite expensive for what it offered. Thanx!

So long as Vatra Adrealului maintains these standards (and they have done so for at least 10 years since I go to Brasov) it is difficult to see anyone topping them in terms of deserts. Sometimes you have to wait in a queue at peak times (say on a Saturday night) but this is the price to pay for producing... More

even if the prices are a little bit high, the quality is very good. sometimes, when is crowded, you have to wait even 10-15 minutes in a line to take your order, which is unplesant. the cake "deliciu" is excellent.

The place in itself is nondescript. A few tables, a few display cabinets for the sweets and a bland décor. The first thing you notice is the prices, which are quite high for Romania: 100 lei (23 euros) for a kg of cake is a lot for Romania, IMO. That being said, the sweets that we ate were quite good...

Way too expensive comparing to what they sell. The only exceptions are the "pișcoturi", Which are great.
