If you have ever been there, you will agree with The Telegraph’s listmakers.

Found at Vörösmarty Square, in the heart of the city, Gerbeaud confectionery is one of Europe’s oldest, greatest and most famous confectioneries and cafés. And now, it is also on The Telegraph’s list of the 14 best historic cafés in Europe that we should visit before we die.


The patinated confectionary is mentioned on the list among illustrious cafés like Caffé Florian at Saint Mark’s Square in Venice, Café de la Paix in Paris and Café Central in Vienna.

“One of the biggest traditional cafés in a city known for being home, at one point, to around 500 of them. Dating back to 1858, it is famous for its cakes and sweet pastries. Emil Gerbeaud, a Swiss confectioner, devised creations including ‘konyakos meggy’, made from sour cherry, matured in cognac and covered with dark chocolate, and ‘zserbó szelet’, layers of cake, jam and ground walnuts, topped with a chocolate glaze, to serve to punter” - writes The Telegraph.
