This is in my old neighbourhood! Still in the same building, just across KIKA. It opened before the war. I can't remember the exact history, but if you go there they will proudly tell you all about it. The 'retes' struddle is the best in town. I know as I have tried enough. They do, cherries, sweet and sour chees,... More

I'd rate this more of a 3.5 -- it's above average, but not sure it's "very good". I think however this may be because we were there relatively late on a Sunday -- 4:30pm. It was nice they were open this late on a Sunday (primarily was take out). They had several varieties -- about $1/slice. We got 4 different... More

The strudel is the best you will ever eat. Every filling (my favorites are sour cherry and chestnut, but my friend loves the stuffed cabbage filling. Find the one you'll love. And The atmosphere is so wonderfully Budapest.

Nice and small domestic and familiar environment with many different kinds of small and very delicious cakes. Try it ;) Szép környezet, széles választék, házias ízek. Hideg időben jó lenne, ha teátzni is lehetne.

Really super good strudel, we made a special trip just to go here and it was certainly worth the walk. All they sell is Strudel.....and some coffee, you can eat in or have it to go. You can also watch them rolling it out right in front of you. They had at least 15 different kinds of strudel when we... More

This place has a long history, they were there as well when my mother was a child. But still they make the best strudel in town. The shop itself is small, with 3 or 4 tabels only, but is has a nice athmosphere.

Located just enough off the beaten path to make it quiet and local. Very nice ambiance with lots of dark wood, windows, and nicely padded seats. There are strudels of just about any filling you might wish, including savory and they are fresh, flaky and yummy. The coffee is good, made in the classics style, no big milky froth on... More

Although I live three blocks away, I never went to this place before. Since I needed some rétes to bring along to a birthday party, and only had time to go get it after work, I searched on the internet. They are open every day until 8 pm the whole year, except for new year's eve I think. They have... More

Excellent latte and a unique sophisticated and calming atmosphere. Try this if you have had enough Starbucks!
