“Tsukernya!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Actually the place is called Tsukernya and it has been my favourite cafe in Lviv for the last 12 years. It is still unique despite the fact that the competition in this shpere grows day by day... The atmosphere is gorgeous and the interior is wonderful, one has a feeling of travelling back in time to Belle Epoch of aristocracy when one could spend hours drinking a cup of coffee with an exquisite platter of desserts in a company of loyal old friends. The taste of local sweets is beyond comparison, coffee is excellent. The only drawback is that on holidays and at weekends it is way too crowded, so one should plan a visit beforehand. I believe Tsukernya will always be my all times favourite!

“The best place for DESSERTS in city for couples, business, or friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

once seated in this cafe, you can feel as you are better in Vienna times, all the cakes are fresh and also offer to have a take out options for birthdays or just home dinner. Try ECLAIR (my mom's favorite), and you will always have in your mind! i also love the cherry strudel with vanilla sauce. Always ask for advice - and will get the best on it. Everything is fresh, as is the cafe is responsible also for baking cakes.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

All cakes are awesome, little-bit expensive. Éclair are my favorite.
You need to stay in queue to get to the toilet.

“Perfect place for people who love cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

I love this place. They have a greait choice of many very good cakes there - always fresh and delicious. You can sit outside on the terrasse and enjoy the evening in old city. They also have a great chois of different teas. This place is not cheap, but concidering the quality of the food you get there and compareing to other places this is the best place to go if you love cakes. Cheese cake was always my favorite there - I was happy with it this time as well. This is however not typical cheesecake you get everywhere else in western europe - this cake is really special. Enjoy! Service is quite slow, but it is not a problam.

“Sweet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

This is the best place for sweets in Lviv. We had a table on a terrace outside the restaurant. It is situated in a quiet area not far from the Old City. Apple strudel rocks!
