We stopped here after lunch and had espressos and a dessert. The dessert was a creamy cake with nuts and chocolate. Not only was it delicious but it was beautiful. The staff were super friendly and nice. This is a great spot to stop for an afternoon pastry and/or coffee.

Absolutely superb. I go there every time I'm in BA & I'm never dissapointed. Really Small, cozy & well designed; very well kept. Its pastries & desserts are produced right there, sometimes in plain sight. Quality never fails, but selection is not large. Its chocolate mousse tart is tops - world class (among top 3 worldwide, and I've tried them all over Europe and the Americas). Dieters beware 'cause every pastry is too tempting to resist. Don't miss it if you have a sweet tooth.

Found this place while wandering in the neighborhood. It's a tiny place with a sole table that seat max 4. There is an open kitchen (with 4-5 additional bar chairs), where you can watch the yummy cakes being prepared. We tried a variety of different cakes and all were outstanding! Loved their Sacher cake and the cupcakes. Their Smerterling coffee was also great. Definitely recommend this place to be visited, but you must be lucky to get the table.

This was also on my list of "must visit" as it was again listed in one of the top ten places to visit. The cakes are wonderful and much the same price as you would pay in the UK for the same quality. It is actually just a cake shop with seats at the counter and one small table that will seat max four. The coffee was terrible. I asked for a cappuccino but this was nothing like a cappuccino. Did not think it was worth the visit.
