“One of the oldest and most famous cafes in Budapest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Nice place but nothing special. The location is very convinient, in the Vorosmarty square, where you can stop for a cappuccino.
The environment is very cosy and the staff very friendly.
The prices for coffees are reasonable but desserts are quite expensive.

“Nice old interiors, good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

I visited it before Christmas, so view at outside christmas market was great.
We had a coffe, tea and some cakes and macarons.
Everything vas tasty, nice presented and served with good english by staff, but I have found it quite expensive in terms of Budapest prices. You pay much more for a place like this so you have to expect higher prices than in other places.
It is old fashion coffee shop, so it is nice to visit it, but for me one visit was enough.
I regulary vist Alexandra Book Caf - Lotz Terem, which I prefer much more.

“Not good as during summer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Choice of cases was limited, some cakes were available only if You order special plate, so for a choice of cakes too expensive. Wider choice during summer

“Overated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Yes the cakes are tasty BUT in Budapest there are dozens of even better places to enjoy your cake. In the summer Gerbaud is better as you can sit outside and watch the world go by but in the winter you sit inside and I would advise you to try the New York Cafe at Boscolo hotel instead. Gerbaud trades on its reputation and location but look around as Budapest has much more to offer, especially in the cake department.
