After a hike to the Citadel, in Budapest, what is better than getting a sweet and a coffee in a picturesque and cute café'? Let's go in Aszatalka Patisserie
, just alongside Gellert Hill. I popped in by chance: mum and I were so tired from the long walk and here we found a very relaxing and cosy atmosphere.
The array of cakes looked so delicious, and the small tea room appeared finely decorated. We chose the table close to the window and I was completely mesmerised by the objects and furniture around.
Let's start from the seats. The patisserie has these elegant chairs, encased with a 50's style and each table surface gets a fresh look with a bunch of flowers (in our cases we had daisies) and a candle in a glass holder of blueish hues. When our huge cakes slices arrived (we ordered one with walnuts and chocolate and caramel), together with our cappuccinos, we had the perfect picture! This cute portrait was completed with two glass of water, a golden sugar bowl and napkin put in a sober mug.
While enjoying my dessert, I glanced at my right side, where an embellished white curtain was creating the right penumbra to assure both a proper cosiness to the customer and a visual on the books displayed on the bench upon the heater. Yes, because the concept of relaxing in this place is highly valued and this means that everyone can take all the time he wants to drink, eat and read!
Moreover, unusual decorations were hung at the windows; forks and spoons swung from the ceiling tied with by a red thread. You will find them by looking over that curtain!
As I said before, the furnishings were amazing! Everything caught my attention, continuously in pursuing of inspiration, from the lamp, doll, plant and the already-mentioned books, to the cupboard in the middle of the wall, which contains a little treasure of glasses and porcelain appropriate for an "afternoon tea". It seemed to be to Grandmother's house, living a throwback in which the feelings inside are full of joy and peace.
Of course, the cakes were so delicious, tasty and filling. We just went out with the energies restored and the spirit reloaded!
