Tour description

Things to do in Budapest! A sweet break on your Budapest visit! Coffee and cake in the city!

In 1912 there were more than 300 coffee-confectioneries in Budapest, and still today we have plenty of them, like the legendary Gerbeaud in the Downtown of Pest, the "Művész" ("Artist") on the Andrássy street or Ruszwurm in Buda Castle.

During the tour we invite you to a new place: the Szamos Gourmet House at Vörösmarthy Square, which is a sweet-shop, coffee and chocolate manufacturing shop at the same time. In its new shop Szamos lets its guests have an insight into the process of manufacturing handmade bonbons, and you may also get familiar with how air gets into the chocolate Santa clause. In addition to the classical choice, the sweet-shop also offers sweets and plated desserts that are French-like or typical of the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy. The complete bonbon choice includes at least 40 tastes. But Szamos Gourmet House is more than a traditional sweet-shop in a nice environment, the enviroment is amazing! The trade-sign of the shop is a great-sized chocolate tree giving a special spectacle, in which the golden cocoa fruits at the tips of the silver branches are illuminated after dark to lure visitors. (This is the second one in the world, the first one can be found in the Imhoff Chocolate Museum of Köln. The steel tree is 2.5 m tall, its weight is 220 kg, and there are 82 golden cocoa fruits located on its branches.)

After having a guided walk in Downtown of Budapest, have a coffee with us, learn everything about the history of Budapest's coffees, the famous Dobos, Sacher and Esterhazy's cake, "rétes" and "krémes", and how coffee-shop life went on in Hungary on the turn of 19th/20th century!
