We visited during a wander around castle hill. Poppy seed and cherry strudels were delicious and definitely worth grabbing if you're in the area

Looking for ice cream and cold beer on a warm day. Found this in an archway, very reasonable prices for a place in Buda castle, cool and shaded benches in the archway. Cinnamon ice cream and cherry strudel. Excellent.

Hi, Strudel was $1.50-$2. We don't drink coffee but I'm sure it's cheaper than a Coke or Fanta!
