The European decorations, heavy and rich, including silk curtains, crystal chandeliers and expensive gold decorations. The place was popular among the Hungarian nobility until the 19th century. Empress Sisi, the wife of the Emperor of Franz Joseph, loved to dine here, and until today there is a drink on the menu named after her, the wonderful Sisi coffee, an espresso with a peach liquor.
The place is named after Emil Gerbeaud, one of the most famous confectioneries and most celebrated in the history of Hungary, the one who invented the Gerbeaud cake. Order the cake with the Sisi Coffe and you will be almost royal!
Today, Gerbeaud offers many cakes and baked goods, but the specialty here is without a doubt the Dobos torte- a layered caked with many layers, loaded with buttercream with chocolate between each layer of dough.
Of course, you don't have to stuff yourself with such cakes. There is a huge variety of baked goods, of all kinds and flavors. During nice weather, you can sit outside, on the terrace, and enjoy the dozens of cakes and baked goods.
