Not so long Bucharest was giving that French sophisticated vibe not just in architecture but in cafes and the love for desserts, as well. But then, the communist era came and Bucharest lost its pace as far as trendy venues go.
And yet, nowadays Bucharest seems to have rediscovered its passion for the sweater part of life, and delicious dessert spots, ice cream parlors, and pastries have taken over and reclaimed their spotlight on the gourmet scene. Expect your sweets to feel like traveling the world with scents of sunny Greece, sophisticated Paris, easy-going Italy, or the exotic tastes you can uncover in Istanbul.
I trust that you are going to find something to delight yourself with from Framey’s delicious collection: Bucharest’s 21 Best Desserts Spots.
The first place on our list is the Venchi Cioccogelateria. Venchi has a longstanding tradition of creating some of the best chocolates, the famous Nougatine, and gelato. But Italy is just the place where it all started in the late 1800s. Today Venchi expanded all around the globe, from London to Dubai and New York. So expect the Venchi tradition and delicious good tastes in Bucharest’s Cioccogelateria!
