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The restaurant is a bit outdated (including the service) but the cakes overall are delicious.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

Little tea-room (6-7 tables only) where you can have delicious cakes, from turkish kataif to cheese cakes, savarines, chocolat truffles, fruit flans and tartes, pies, baclava and so many other. Right in the olt town centre. A splendid experience for dessert lovers and not only.

I would say, an all my friends agree, that this cake shop has the most amazing cakes in Brasov. The staff was very helpful in choosing the right cake, as all looked so appetizing, it was very hard to decide! All local ingredients and the cream in them....the best ever...It was real cream, what is so hard to find, everyone... More

I personally love the truffles there. They also have a killer cozonac and old school cakes like savarina and Amandine.
