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.

At first, my wife and I were surprised with prices of cakes which are much more than we were acustomed in Transylvania, but when we tried their cakes, we felt that every Leu (Romanian currency) was well deserved. Cakes were just wonderful, fit for emperor's table. Settings is nice and vintage chairs, details and photos testify of this place's history... More

We tried according to the rating this cake shop and we were disgusted by the taste of the cakes. The pictures have nothing to do with reality. The cakes look like in 70's and the prices are so high that I left with a bad taste (from cake that tasted 3 days old or more and from the huge price).... More

You will find here the best cakes in Brasov. It's a small cake shop, but all cakes are super delicious.
