Love it!

Delightful little pastry shop, with fantastic food. Their breakfast sandwiches are spectacular, and I loved the little sugar crystal lollipop they gave me with my delicious coffee. Should definitely give this place a visit if you're in the area.

The establishment offers good value for your dollar. The menu and food are authentic (we spent years in Budapest so have a fair idea). The quality, especially of the pastries have gone down a bit in the past few years, likely a younger generation taking over. It is still good but was better in the past.

Was pleasantly surprised. The food was great! I had the Viennese Schnitzel and my husband had the Szekely both, were excellent dishes! Good size helpings, tasty! and great value! We were actually surprised how inexpensive the bill was. It is casual style but quiet so, you can have a conversation without yelling! The desserts looked yummy and again very reasonable... More

Every time we go to the white mountains we stop at Lala's. I don't even remember how we found it the first time but we love it. Pastries are amazing as well as the cookies to go!! We had breakfast and it's good .. I would like to come back again and try lunch or dinner. The price is right... More

Hate to write this review... but ... my favorite Hungarian dishes were lessened by the apparent (and excessive) use of bouillon cube (or similar) stock. The food used to be cooked from scratch - without the use of such fabrications, and my hope is that the owners see this review and take it to heart and stop using short cuts.... More

Words cant explain the honesty of this place do yourself a favor and talk (yes actually have a conversation) with the owners. Your heart will be rewarded and thoughts of your grandparents will probably enter your mind. They make practically EVERYTHING by hand including the noodles in the delicious soups. Everything our group had was beyond good from the chicken... More

Is this what homemade really tastes like. Mouth watering carrots and chicken goulash oh my. It was quick but incredible rich in flavour. The service was excellent and the prices were low in comparison to other restaurants in the area. Great for a quick lunch when taking a break from the convention centre or even a great supper idea.

Great for breakfast! Pastries are fantastic! Soups are wonderful! Lunch and dinner entrees can be variable, but that doesn't stop me from coming back every time I'm in Manchester!

I stumbled upon this place in downtown Manchester and was so glad I did because it is such a great find. They have a Hungarian/Romanian menu with Goulash, Schnitzel and other old-world authentic entrees. I first had the meatball soup which I believe was made from scratch while I waited. Then, as an entree I had the chicken schnitzel. My... More
