If you want to visit Matild, you have to come to Buda. Chez Matild is located at the foot of Gellért Hill, on a quiet side street, close to Móricz Zsigmond Square. If we talk about France, we can expect Matild to enchant us with its croissants, silky coffees, and traditional French pastries. In their regular offer, there are always madeleines, pain au chocolat, but you can also have a good few slices of the French almond cake, Galette de rois.

Anton on Bródy Sándor Street brings the typical atmosphere of the Palace District, while at the same time guiding us to Scandinavia. It is definitely worth getting to know the Swedish favourite, kanelbullar, which is an eye-catching bread made with cinnamon swirls and sourdough. And what is it that you definitely cannot miss from what is on offer in such a bakery? Of course, it is their excellent coffee.

This place is a little bit of an exception on our list, as they are mostly into sweet stuff, but the good news is that in 2022, it is completely enough to visit Terézváros to taste the masterpieces of this confectionery team from Siberia. Cake & More by Garannikova on Podmaniczky Street presents the finest of Russia, such as fabulous cakes and pastries. In addition to their unbeatable éclair doughnuts, cakes called ‘Kyiv’ and the ‘Wealth of Siberia’ should not be missed out on.

A colourful cavalcade of Mexican, international & Hungarian bakery products. Péter, a local man, and Karen, originally a teacher committed to baking, brought their knowledge and many recipes from Mexico to amaze the Hungarian audience with their joint craft bakery. Although there are also Hungarian or French-origin products available, perhaps we do not have to say that it is worth getting lost in the multicultural opportunities provided by this bakery.

Maybe this is the most surprising place making it to the list, but once you have tried it, you will never forget it. The Iranian patisserie can be found in the ‘Party district’, which, contrary to its name, also has plenty of bakery products as well. Do not miss out on the saffron baklava!

Kinga and Attila’s bakery, the idea of aran bakery, was born during the years they spent in Ireland. The classic Irish roots are available not only in what is on offer in the bakeries in Buda and Pest but also in the name of the bakery, as the word “aran” means bread in Irish. The heart and soul of their bread, their sourdough, could not have been born elsewhere than in Dublin. In addition to sourdough breads, of course, locally made Irish delicacies are also on offer.
