Great traditional cakes

I personally love the truffles there. They also have a killer cozonac and old school cakes like savarina and Amandine.

We stumbled in on a rainy afternoon and ordered two placinta (like a strudel) - one cheese and one apple. They were both very nice, especially with a cup of their coffee.

It's a bakery shop that probably looks better than it is. The cakes were OK, but nothing special. The staff was a bit grumpy as if we were a trouble rather than customers. I believe you can find more welcoming places around.

We called in here purely by chance for coffee after visiting the Black Church and we were surprised by the quality of the cakes on offer. This place sells top quality pastries and cakes - if you want a treat come here!!
