The place is small, but enough tables and is located in the center, you can see the Black Church on the window. I recommend the cakes -delice and the cake with nuts, they are tasty. The prices are also good, around 2 euros 100 grams!

There are not many things to be added, except for the stunning great taste of all I tried there. Anybody who didn't do it, and is visiting Brasov - just do it ! Cake-of-the-House is great.
