Here, I ate the best cake in my life. Pure, black chocolate with cherries in alchocol, mmm...Wonderful ambient, good service. P.S. I want a recipe for that cake :)

Excellent quality cakes and pastries, one of the staples in the city for many years. Downside - the same one server lady we remember from the few trips over the years, sour attitude which takes away from the food experience.

Old fashioned traditional coffee house. Good coffee and vast choice of cream cakes. Clean European toilets.

We keep buying there because if old times sake, when it was really special, but truth be told the cakes have nothing special and are overpriced. Lately we could not find fresh cakes, really.

The atmosphere is very understated, but they have the absolute very best tiramisu, delice and forest berries cakes I have ever had in my life after travelling to 35 countries.

Terrible, tasteless cakes - I was very much misled by the positive reviews here, but they are so far from the truth. Only espresso coffee, no hot chocolate, although on the menu. Self service, no English speaking staff. And the best - this was the only place in Romania where they tried to cheat us in a very nasty way!... More

We tried their products many times, always the best quality! The only problem is that I can not stop eating.

The restaurant is a bit outdated (including the service) but the cakes overall are delicious. There's a great variety to choose from. No seats outside and it can get hot inside.

This is an old fashioned cake shop with own creations that are delicious. The best cake would be "Deliciu", a tasty creamy fruit cake. The window seat gives you a nice chance to enjoy any of the goodies they serve and have a look over the black church and the mountains in Brasov.

The place is a bit old and a bit kitsch. The food is OK-ish, if you are not a cookie lover. The prices are a bit high, and the quality is not that great. It is a nice place for the whole experience: an old place close to the town center. The staff is like "the soup nazi" in Seinfield,... More
