Wandering around the Fisherman's Bastion looking for the statue of the monk Julian we came across this rather oddly named ice cream parlor called the Szabo Marzipan Museum. It was nothing more than a cafe with a display case full of marzipan figures, and another...More

A bit pricey, but worth it. The marzipan sweets are work of art and absolutely delicious. Worth it to visit and to see the sculptures of marzipan.

Avoid. Got served a moldy esterchaz cake. Still got charged for the rest of the meal. Staff were apologetic but only just.

It was a bit pricey, but had a nice atmosphere and good service. It was holy week, so many people were buying marzipan gift boxes.

Not a museum, but a cafe. They said that it is no more museum. Just you enter into the marzipan shop and small café. But you can enjoy a very good cup of coffee and you definitely should try marzipans in a shop!

Astounding what artists can do with sugar, almond paste and chocolate as media. Cool replicas of Hungarian landmarks, handicrafts and portraiture. And all the kinds of marzipan candy for sale that you could ever dream of. Kitschy fun.
