Based on tourist reviews we went there with very high expectations for our breakfast. Unfortunately it was kind of “breakfast hostel”: the Nutella pancakes were dry and have never seen Nutella (they had some sort of chocolate sauce) and the cheese omelette was very salty.

You can take breakfast over 12:00 so it’s perfect if you are in holiday and do not wake up at 7. Excellent food, friendly and positive staff, super cozy place. Food tastes great and the pancakes are amazing. The portions are big, we couldn’t finish...them but really tasty.More

A small bistro located in the old town of Brasov it will surprised you with delicious and healthy breakfast, brunch or lunch. Great for vegans and lovers of Californian style brunch. The place is small but very friendly and pleasant. There is an outdoor terrace...and also an indoor space. . The staff is exceptionally helpful and ready to accommodate .you .I greatly recommend this bistro for an early breakfast ( the place opens 8 am ), brunch and lunch. Everything is fresh, local ,tasty and pleasant !More

We came here because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and it was a great choice. We ate here 2 days in a row. They have a lot of things to choose from. We ate different types of scrambled eggs, halloumi with cous cous and pancakes....The place is small, so it's always full. But the staff is very nice and they usually find a table for you. They respect the measures regarding covid.More

Gorgeous little bistro in the heart of the old town specialising in brunch & breakfast, the most popular place in town for this. Opens 8am to 4pm & closes Tuesdays & Wednesdays. In contrast to the previous reviewer, I found service to be excellent, the...guy who served me couldn’t have been smilier or more welcoming. The menu offers various tasty dishes in addition to great coffee, brunch friendly cocktails (Mimosa etc) & fruit smoothies if you’re feeling healthy. It’s a tiny little spot with a small outside terrace of tables, which amazingly we were sat at basking in the sun in late October!More

Went here for brunch as the reviews were great. Unfortunately, the experience was awful. The food was very low quality and poorly prepared- basically the type of stuff you see in run-down highway diners in the US. And the service was atrocious. Rude, slow, and...just bad waiters.More

Best place to eat breakfast/brunc in Brasov. The stuff is really helpful and food is great. In the weekend it’s hard to find free tables, but it is worth the waiting.
