    Gerbeaud remains one of the best traditional places in Budapest to enjoy pastries and coffee in a fin-de-siecle atmosphere in the center of Budapest.

    Try the ice-cream at the Gerbaud Pavillon with home-made cone! The more flavour you choose the less you pay ;) (1 ball=400HUF, 2=650HUF, 3=850HUF)

    Sacher: chocolate sponge with marzipan, filled with homemade apricot jam, encased in Valrhona chocolate frosting. After you've tried it, it can easily happen that every other Sacher will taste worse.

    Gerbeaud’s selection is basically an exhibition of confectionery art. The interior is dominated by three materials – marble, gold, and wood -, and recalls the vibe of early 20th century Budapest.

    A Pest institution, this spacious café has been serving coffee and cakes since 1858. It seats 330 in its theatrically gilded and swagged interior, making it one of the biggest cafés in Europe.

    Must try Gerbeaud Tokio and the regular with a cup of coffee.Meşhur Gerbeaud pastasını denemelisiniz, Tokyo da beyaz çikolatalısı ve geleneksel tada yeni bir yorum. Yanında Kahvenizi unutmayın.

    One of the trendiest cafes in Budapest! A great choice for breakfast and coffee or tea! Excellent choice of sandwiches!

    Lovely atmosphere and the cakes looks great..but unfortunately they served cakes for us despite we told them, that we were allergic to all kinds of nuts!!!!that could cost us a visit to the hospital..

    The most famous patisserie of Budapest since 1858. You may taste over 100 different cakes. My favorite one is traditional Dobos.

    Really nice atmosphere, actually the dobos cake is awesome and cappuccino is good. This place is not really cheap but come on you are in Budapest just go and try it!

    Delicious food and drink, and a gorgeous interior, but very pricey. Try the "bodza lime jeges kávé", an iced coffee flavoured with elderflower and lime.

    Back in the days, used to be the favorite sport of well-to-do ladies. Now is full of tourist, it's overpriced but the old decor is nice.

    Classic and classy Cafe , good food. I reccomend "Oslo Breakfast" (smoked salmon with poached eggs, salmon caviar and brown-grain toast).

    Very good deserts, most of them good to share but the service can be so bad. From very nice waiters to plain rude ones. A place like this should be careful during recruiting. A smile goes a long way..

    Very expensive (€30 for 2 pieces of cake and 2 coffees), but that's what you pay for the privilege of sitting in a very beautiful coffee house. If you're after something cheaper, try Central.

    Since last December their cakes suffer on quality. We were really disappointed with them. It's a beautiful place with lots of history and the price will reflect it. But you feel like in a factory.

    The Dobos Torte is delicious, but maybe not for everyone (despite it is said that Sisi loved it)

    This is the GERBAUD Café but to try a piece of Gerbaud cake you must order it as part of the 'Traditional Gerbaud Cake Selection' only...4450 HUF. The service is also not the best.

    If you are not in a mood for a big (and expensive) dessert, take a coffee and small (chocolate!) macaroons from the tower.

    Stopped in to warm up and have a coffee on a winter night. Too bad it was so cold because their ice cream sundaes look delicious! Beautiful, iconic space

    This historic confectionery offers traditionally divine flavors and prefers high-quality ingredients to artificial additives. Cones are made by hand from almond flour.

    Very expensive but must visit anyway. Amazing historical place with beautiful interior.

    World class desserts. It’s a little pricy, but it isn’t cheap to pay for the upkeep of such a beautiful cafe. Worth the expense.

    Delicious desserts and milkshakes. If you have allergies, be careful - I found a small piece of nut (walnut?) in my chocolate milkshake.

    Most famous coffee shop in Budapest. Nice place to have a coffee but spanish and italian coffee shops just play in another league.

    Very impressive place (architecture). Prices are high though, and the waiters don't seem to like working there. Not a must do, but a nice to have done.

    All good and fancy but to be honest not worth it for the price. The food is good but nothing too special... you feel the classical vibe so if you like that it might be worth a visit 🎩

    delicious desserts but the famous Gerbeaud’s selection of chocolates is too expensive. The waitress was rude and we felt uncomfortable when she was pressing us to order as soon as we arrived

    Emil Gerbeaud cake is horrible, although i am a big fan of chocolate, the place is nice but unfortunately without charm, touristy, commercial, don't really recommend eating there,try central instead

    The food is very good and with high quality. Nice building. But I don't like at all how they rip off tourists. 15%!!!! Service charge is unique in Budapest besides the prices are very high anyway.

    One of the most famous cafe in Budapest( i don't know why?!). The interior is nice( not as nice as the new York cafe). I don't like the attitude of the waitress and the cakes are not that special..

    You walk in and realize everybody is whispering. Even the waitresses. It's like you're in a sweets asylum. Concentrate on the dessert!

    Could be a very good place if the service is better..same price range with New York Cafe but New York is 5th time better than Gerbeaud..service + food are priority :))
