Gerbeaud is not only a café but also a rather important sight in Budapest. This is where the aristocracy went during the time of the Dual Monarchy. The large halls have preserved their appearance to this day and you will feel transported back to a time of sumptuous delicacies in luxurious surroundings. Do go and take a look at the cakes in the glass cases and choose whatever takes your fancy, not forgetting a cup of coffee or a steaming hot chocolate or cocoa (not the same here). We recommend the signature "Gerbeaud" slice, a delicious multi-layered cake made of walnut and apricot jam, covered with thick chocolate.
