Sweat Treats

Lukács Cukrászda is located on Andrássy street's "second half", which goes from Oktogon to Heroes' Square- there are less fancy shops and restaurants but quite a few stately mansions, embassies and art galleries. The tourist crowd tends to skip this part, often taking the metro from Oktogon and resurfacing only at the square. This gives the area a more local, leisurely feel and while peacefully strolling along you can drop in to Lukács for some sweet delights- the patisserie has been operating at this very spot since 1912 and after a few decades of communist decay, it has been renovated in 2007- it is one of the pricier patisseries in town, but they offer a good range of Austro-Hungarian classics along some newcomers such as cupcakes and maccarons.In summer you can drop in for an icecream which will last you all the way to the square.
