Traditional café in the main walking street of Eger, selling - among others - the iconic Dobos cake. What could be more chic than tasting a Dobos cake at Café Dobos? Let's give it a go. I entered the café and noticed the staff and zero guests inside. I found it strange, since it was a sunny spring Friday afternoon.... More

This conditory is a must, as it names suggest - this is the birthplace of the famous Dobos cake. Take care, it is hard to choose what do you really want to taste, there are so many cakes.

As a kid, it loved this place! It is just so sad the way it is now. The cakes are tasteless, the selection is very limited, not to mention the service which is basically non existent. Rather do self service than this, seriously. Just sad. I will never be back.

Visit this place with my wife on a trip in October 2015. The staff was very friendly, and service minded. Coffee and cake was okay, but nothing special. I have tasted better cake in Hungary.

They sell it as homemade but it's obviously made of powder.. The lemon tastes like a toilet cleaner. The service was okay. The waiter was kind as my girlfriend no wait she's cute

We visited Eger with my wife and family (my parents and sister with her husband) and decided to try out Dobos after lunch. Biggest disappontment ever. The waitress was so rude that we almost instantly left the place however we sat down and decided to drink a coffee and have a cake. Me and my wife and sister wanted to... More

Antique and smart interior, nice and tasty cakes, professional service (water is served both for the coffes and cakes automatically although it is very rare now unfortunately). Quite expensive.

This place has the potential to be the best cafe/patisserie in Eger. Its settings are amazing, it has a real 19th century atmosphere with red marble and stained glass decorations. Their ice creams and coffees are also good. Therefore I don't understand why the quality of their cakes has to be so bad... We tried a few of their cakes... More

Had ice coffee here, so limited experience. The coffee was good, the waiters all very young (summer jobs?) and inexperienced. The place is surprisingly nice on the inside, but we only discovered this as we left.
