“Karolina Cukrászda- what a surprise!!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

I have decided long time ago, that I must write about this place. It is located in the Northern side of lake Balaton ( approx. 100 km from Budapest), so you visit it if you spend a few days in the region or you live there. One of my friends recommended to visit the place and I went there during the winter.
It is located in Balatonfüred, which is a place worth to visit anyway. The street the lake is nicely renovated and Karolina is placed near the lake in a walking area.
All in all it is amazing. It is definitely not a restaurant. It is neither a typical confectionery nor a bar. It is rather the mix of the two: a bar where you can have lovely cakes, sandwiches, cocktails, house ground coffees.
You can choose to sit inside or outside. The place is not big, this is why you feel like you sit in the spacy sitting room of your house.
The concept is also lovely: Karolina was the grandmother of the owners. They have established the place in the memory of the grandma, you discover her photos, recipes packed in a modern style.
The cakes they sell they produce themselves, so as the wine and the spirits. The grape they use for the wine is grown in the neighborhood. They also sell home ground coffee, and some savory food in the store (bread, cheese, jams).
They often organize some events with music or wine tasting, or even carnival.
The service: I have visited Karolina at least 5 time during this winter and it was always perfect.
All in all I hope it will remain the same cool and lovely place with tasty home-made cakes for a long-long time, because it became my favorite place to go in the Balaton region.

“Overall a good place for a coffee”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

The decor is quite messed up (done by the owner's mum - according to their brochure. Big mistake) It's a bad mixture of old and new. However it is a good exapmle of why people pay for interior designers. This is not such a big issue alltogheter, however the ambiance is not there. The service was perfect, quick and efficient. The coffees and pasteries were also nice. Still one of best in Balatonfured. Some items are overpriced but alltogheer the pricing is reasonable. Credit cards were not accepted - strange...

“Super place, we never miss to stop by”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Great coffee, cakes and home made prosecco. The service is smooth and friendly, as you can expect for such a price level. Nice and clean restroom and flexible staff: ready to open the terrace even in December when the weather permits. I do appreciate their heated grape seed pillow was offered while we set on the terrace. Funny enough, all the neighbouring cafes and restaurants were empty, while Karolina was full with guests during our visit.

“Excellent Service”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We dropped by today for a coffee and cake with our little dogs. We sat outside as although it is December it was a bright day. The service was excellent, we were given a place under the heaters, blankets and hot bean bags to keep us warm. The coffee, teas and cakes we had were fantastic and we were made to feel very welcome. Highly recommended.
