Noé Cukrászda is not the kind of pastry-coffee shop that you notice easily. If one of my friends hadn’t told me about it I would have passed it to rush down on Wesselényi on my bike as I usually do!
But you too would be wrong not to stop by.
I’ve hardly found a better place in Budapest to have flódni, a special Hungarian-Jewish cake including apple, walnut, plum jam and poppy seed layers. But all the pastries and cakes here are delicious, even the pogácsa (a Hungarian scone, salty appetizer that is usually a bit heavy on your stomach, at least to me!). Ráhel who makes all these delights is a local pastry star with several other places in town.
It’s a tiny little café as well, with a mezzanine floor with wi-fi so that you can enjoy their excellent coffees while trying all the cakes and checking your regular email flow.
Last but not least, the service is plainly nice, plus there is a little terrace to enjoy the sunshine outside in the summer!
