Loved the place! A great smile by the owner and a smell of freshly baked cookies immediately warmed me up in the cold March day. The place makes you want to stay - a combination of style, excellent taste and affordable prices. I am planning to return and bring kids and friends for a surprise treat! Do not miss it!

Who would expect that at the very heart of this big and busy city you can find a little women-owned bakery where they make delicious pastries and cakes? The shop is situated near to the place I work and I got it recommended from colleagues of mine. I tried first their Sacher cake (it is really popular among customers) and I appreciated the quality products, the excellent taste and the reasonable price. And as time went by, I tried almost al of their produce, except for the veggie goods - I am not into those. The owners are quite friendly and satisfied my curiosity on how they did this and that. In short, I became a regular. I recommend this bakery if you want to have a nice pastry experience. My all-time favorite is the Dobos cake. Oh, and it goes very well with some coffee (they do make good coffee) and a book on culinary to browse.

I am so happy we chose Cake Lab Sofia for our celebration! They created for us the most beautiful and delicious bachelorette cupcakes that we could ever imagine. The staff is amazing, those lovely ladies are so nice and friendly and they were open for our ideas how we would want the cupcakes to look like and made them specially for us. We are very thankful for the professional attitude and that you made our event unforgettable. We will definitely visit this place again :))

Cake lab found me before I found them. I was surprised with a box of cupcakes ordered by a friend from them and fell in love instantly. Ever since I've been going there alone or with friends. The cakes are always freshly made, very light and super tasteful. I love that they know me by now and I always feel special when going there. I order from them every time I have a special occasion and they never disappoint. Definitely worth visiting!!!!

Cake Lab is a must when you are visiting Sofia! Their carrot cake is divine. Whatever you choose to taste, you won't be disappointed! You can enjoy desserts, vegan options or some of the salty options in the welcoming atmosphere of the Lab. The decor is cosy, the bakery team is very nice and helpful and the location is prime.

What a marvelous place!!!! If you are craving the best red velvet or coconut cake with oranges,or simply homemade style cake you are at the place! There are very yummy gluten free cakes as well.The owners have done an amazing job decorating the entire place in shabby shic style. The best place to have your morning or afternoon coffe! Wait until you see what special orders the lovely owner can make for you. You only need to tell what is your dream cake style and you will get what you ask for. Cakelab prepares special event cookies or holiday treats!!! Make time to visit this place when you can.

I come to Cake Lab very often with friends or family to taste delicious cakes and sweets. Also my favourite spinach tart is here. I sometimes call to order it and then come to pick it up.

This is the best place for an afternoon coffee with a piece of cake. It's so comfortable and relaxing that you can spend days here. The cakes, pastries and muffins are homemade and very delicious. I recommend it to everyone. Especially the cookies with honey.

Never disappointed when I stop at Cake Lab. I’ve got birthday cakes, cupcakes, cookies, eclairs and novelty cakes there over the year, it’s all fresh and delicious. The people there are friendly and helpful and the prices are very reasonable. The masterpiece for me is chestnut cake

We visited the bakery on January 13 in the morning to have breakfast, we liked it so much that we repeated it in the afternoon. Delicious biscuits, cheesecake and splendid coffees. The service was excellent and the place was very welcoming. If we go back to Sofia, we will repeat for sure!

Yesterday I visited this beautiful cozy place near Vitosha street. I have been pleasantly surprised by the variety of sweet homemade cakes presented in CakeLab. The people there were very friendly and also speaking good English. I personally tasted a Pastel de nata and the Sacher cake, but the cheesecake, which my children ordered was very delicious as well. My coffee was of a very high quality, too! Overall, I recommend this place to all Sofia visitors.

Picturesque, cozy, quiet with nice and friendly owners. I've been visiting this cafe almost everyday for the last five months. I think I've tried everything, even the vegan cakes though I'm no vegan, I've never been disappointed but today's eclairs were fantastic. The aroma of freshly baked croissants in the morning is overwhelming. Also, you can order whatever cake you like and you'll get it. So I know where to order my birthday cake.

Went here because it's the top rated dessert place in Sofia. It surely did not live up to the reputation. Cakes are not bad, but they're nothing nothing special either. If you like homemade but kind of dry cakes then this is your spot. The carrot cake was really dry and unexceptional. I'd even say below average. The orange coconut cake not quite as dry but also underwhelming. I like more moist cakes so I'm just at a loss as to how this can be the top rated place in Sofia. Again, not bad, but just average. By no means the best in Sofia, not even close.
