The sweets looked fresh and reminded me of the old good not fancy sweets shop that you could find in Romania! One another good thing is the location, just across the street from Black Church in Brasov. The staff looks friendly!

Delicious home made cakes in a old fashioned location near the Black Church. It's very hard to choose front the awesome looking cakes. During the week-end It might be crowded.

This "vintage" sweets-shop, located vis-a-vis the Black Church, near Piața Sfatului (in the center of Brașov) is selling lots of "home-made" sweets. Everything seems to be like 100 years ago, service included (some seem to consider this a weak point - but I tend to disagree and say that this is part of this location charm). Bon appétit!

The pastry shop is located in downtown Brasov, just in front of the black church. Once entering the inside, it seems that time stopped and you will be back in time to the beginning of the previous century. The atmosphere is special. The internal display window full of traditional cakes, filled with chocolate and whipped cream. Taste, is the taste... More

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.
