One of the best cakes in Romania, and also one of the oldest. Close to the Black Church, it worst a visit. Do not expect excellent service, but excellent taste. Enjoy! CarpatBike

An old traditional place but with new and inventive recipes for cakes . The cakes are very good , especially the one with nuts that I showed you in one of the photos I added . I would still prefer the staff to use gloves when handling the cakes . They tend to touch and handle the cakes manually without... More

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
