The Funicular was not working during our last trip to Budapest but we still hiked up Castle Hill twice to eat at Ruszurms. We love this place. The Strudels are fabulous but the Kremes are to die for. Best anywhere. Have never found any to compare. Do yourself a favor and go to Ruszwurm. Even if you have to wait for one of the to few, in demand seats.

I found it through tripadvisor's reviews and I was not dissapointed!

great traditional decoration! a great variaty of cakes and desserts to have !
we had two desserts, one kirschetorte which was like black forest and it was fresh and delicious!!And one traditional dobos torte which we didn't like it much..it was a bit tough and maybe not that fresh as the kirschetorte.Or just not to our taste !

The waitress was not very friendly but she was not bad either!She was quick and served us also 2 glasses with water.

We paid 1000ft (about 5euros ) total.
Not bad at all!

Steeped in history, located in the romance of the Buda Castle district & filled to the brim with gourmet traditional age-old recipe-made confectionery, this is THE place to stop for a coffee and world-famous 'Dobos torta' (the best in the city!). Whenever we have friends visiting the city, we always bring them here. Please do yourselves a favour and visit, I implore you!

We stopped at the historic Ruszworm Cafe during a recent trip to Budapest and found this to be an ok stop for coffee and desserts.

This is a historic coffee shop which opened in the 1820s and has survived wars and troubled times at this location in the Castle District. The small shop has only 12-15 seats and a tiny seating area, which seems more fit for visitors from the 1820s instead of today's larger sized people. This shop has been serving up pastries and coffee drinks for almost two centuries, making this a fun stop to make for those interested to try historic cafes, coffee and confectionary shops.

Unfortunately, the seating area in Ruszworm Cafe is very limited. The small shop has only 12-15 seats and a tiny seating area, which seems more fit for visitors from the 1820s instead of today's larger sized people. We both found the tiny space to be less then ideal and it was clear that some of the larger guests were struggling to manage with the tight space.

During our stop we tried their signature Dobos Torta (500ft). This is a Hungarian sponge cake with layers of chocolate buttercream, topped with caramel. We found this cake to be ok but not something we would regularly order (rating 3 of 5). We also tried the Eszterhazy torta (550ft) which is a local Hungarian cake with buttercream spiced with cognac, embedded in between multiple layers of meringue dough. We liked this version of the Eszterhazy torta. It was attractive, tasted nice and was generally preferred to the Dobos Torta (rating 3.25 of 5).

We also tried coffee drinks at Ruszworm Cafe, sampling their signature Ruszwurm kave (1100ft) which came with cherry brandy, cream and chocolate. This was a bit of a stiff coffee drink that was generally tasty (3.5 of 5). We further tried the Becsi kava (900ft) with chocolate, cinnamon and whipped cream. This was an enjoyable drink as well 3.5 of 5). In the end, we preferred the Becsi kava but would reorder both drinks.

Overall, this was a decent cafe stop. We found the coffee drinks a better than the cakes. Many rave about the cakes here, ours were just ok - nothing that memorable. We did enjoy spending time in a historic establishment but did wish the seating area was a bit more comfortable.

It was very crowded, no one escorted us to a table or greeted us. The waiters did not make eye contact and just slammed the pie on the table (which did not taste good at all). On top of that we had to drink cold tea and the prices were relatively high. 10% service cost was included in the bill.
