Bucharest is full of cafes and dessert shops–so many, in fact, that choice can be overwhelming. Lucky for you (and for us), we tried some of the highest-rated restaurants, with the goal of finding sweets that were both delicious and Instagram-worthy. Here are our top five.
1. Maison Des Crêpes
Maison des Crêpes is every pancake lover’s dream. Apart from its signature pancakes, the shop also offers waffles, crepes and cakes, as well as savory crepes, noodles, and salads. Additionally, the white and minimalist aesthetic of the restaurant creates the perfect atmosphere for taking pictures.
Address: Strada Emanoil Porumbaru 81
Houea: Monday-Sunday, 10am-10pm
Price Range: 20-35 RON
2. French Revolution
French Revolution is well-known for its unique and diverse eclairs. Not only are these desserts soft, fresh and flavourful, but they are also colorful and visually appealing. Some of the most popular eclairs are salted caramel, pistachio and milk chocolate.
Address: Strada Constantin Esarcu nr.1
Program: Monday-Sunday, 10am-9pm
Price Range: 16 RON/eclair
3. NOR Sky Casual Restaurant
Unlike the previous two locations, Nor doesn’t only offer desserts. The restaurant serves a wide range of fusion food, accompanied by an amazing view of the city. When you’re done with the main course, try the most popular dessert, “One Cloud Above the Chocolate Nest” (top left picture above), which consists of three types of chocolate and a cloud of cotton candy on top.
Address: Strada Barbu Văcărescu 201 (Sky Tower, 36th floor)
Program: Monday 12pm-12am, Tuesday-Sunday 10am-12am
Price Range: 30-50 RON (for desserts)
4. Cremeria Emilia
Many people consider Cremeria Emilia as the best ice cream shop in Bucharest. Their ice-creams come in diverse flavors, including cheesecake, strawberry, biscuit, and panna cotta. You can also get your scoop(s) in a chocolate-covered cone with sprinkles.
Address: Find The Nearest Shop
Program: Monday-Sunday, 11am-11pm
Price Range: 10-30 RON
5. Mara Mura
Mara Mura serves mostly cakes and tarts with much-loved ingredients such as Snickers, toasted marshmallow and lemon. Try the sparkling strawberry lemonade to pair with your creamy desserts. You can take pictures inside the dollhouse-themed bakery, or sit on the flowery terrace outside.
Address: Strada Benjamin Franklin 5
Price Range: 5-30 RON
Program: Monday-Sunday, 10am-8pm
