Gerbeaud-house: "The most elegant confectionery in hart of the city" Budapest Shopping Tip by katalin

Budapest Shopping: 222 reviews and 281 photos


The plans for the interior decoration of the café were completed by the artisan Henrik Darilek in the years after 1910. Fine woods, marble and bronze were used. The ceilings were decorated with rococo plaster work in Louis XIV style; the chandeliers and wall lamps were created in Maria Theresa Style. Gerbeaud had secessionist style tables sent from the Paris World Fair so that the elegant ambiance would be perfect. During this time, however, the effects of the First World War were felt ever more strongly, even in the Gerbeaud House.

What to buy: For more than 150 years Gerbeaud has defined what we know as a café and confectionery.
