The Famous Gerbaud

The Gerbaud building forms one side of Vorosmarty Ter from where the walking street - Vaci utca - begins. It's history you may read at the link, but this is also the facade that displays the advent calendar, Christmas fair with booths and mulled wine, then one of the locations for New Year's eve street parties. The pastry shop/cafe was the most fashionable in all of Budapest along with the New York and Central.

Its grandeur is preserved in the structure and its central location adds it to the 'must see' for most tourists. Today it is quite overpriced the waitresses are not the friendliest and the pastries do not stack up - in my opinion - the to quality of the tiny and ancient Buda establishment - the Ruszwurm.

Tomorrow, stay tuned for the statue that graces the center of the square.

A very nice looking building and it looks to be important too. I like your photography. It is very good.

This old man's post brought tears on this Veteran's Day but not because I am a Korean War era veteran.

Impressive, symmetrical building facade-I especially like the balcony doors and railings on the upper floors on either sides.

Graceful and elegant, Isadora.
Love the blue sky, too. I'm jealous (it's pouring with rain here).

Beautiful facade. It definitely looks like it would be on anyone's itinerary in Budapest. I followed the link to the New York and the interior photos are just spectacular!

It is a grand facade indeed, one that would entice the tourists and others who don't know there is better fare elsewhere.

Hello Isadora, that's a very nice pic of Café Gerbeaud and some of Vörösmarty tér. And yes, I agree, some of the Hungarian waitresses can be really forgetful about smiling or just being kind.
