“Just fantastic!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

This is a must-do when visiting Budapest: eating a brilliant Auguszt cake with delicious hot chocolate. The hot chocolate at Auguszt was the best hot chocolate I've ever tasted in my life!
I can also recommend the sachertorte, but there was also 1 cake I wasn't fond of: the cherry poppy seed cake. I might offend Hungarians by saying this, because the poppy seed is a very important ingredient in the Hungarian kitchen, but I just don't really enjoy the taste of the poppy seeds.

When asking for the bill, you will be surprised by the extremely low prices for your food (just 500HFT, which is around 1,70 eur, for hot chocolate). So just give the personnel a huge tip: they really deserve it, because they are very kind, helpful and hard workers.

“Just go and see/taste!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We went to a coffee-shop at Kossuth Lajos utca (since there are 3). Quiet, nice place. Cakes are excellent. I really do recommend one with 3 kinds of chocolate and one with lemon filling and a touch of levander! Delicious.

“An Experience Not To Be Missed!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Went there on our first day with wife and daughter. It was the best way we could imagine to start our short break. The cake ( I had ginger and never normally eat cakes) was amazing. The surroundings were stunning, and the history of the family over the years, and how they beat adversity is fascinating.

“Superb cafe”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Ace coffee shop- definitely the best hot chocolate ever! The pastries were of a high standard, the staff were very helpful and the atmosphere was calm and quiet (a welcome change from the bustling city). It roughly worked out at £4 each for a cake and coffee- bargain for the quality you receive. If you want a warming coffee in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere then go to Auguszt Cukraszda.

Best coffee shop I have been to in Budapest downtown. Only a few minutes from Elisabeth (Erzsébet) bridge. Really delicious cakes, salty things like spinach or ham stuffed little rolls. They say it's the oldest confectionery in Budapest, still owned by the same family. Very friendly service, and nice interior also. You must try!
