Why locals love it
Located in Piaţa Romană, where all the roads lead, “Casandra” cakes and pastry shop was established in 1960 and still has its own traditional recipes from natural ingredients. They offer a wide choice of puff pastry with cheese or spinach, homemade cheese or apple pies, as well as layered cakes and fancy cakes.
Why you should visit it
Casandra is a great location for a break while exploring Bucharest. It has a little terrace where you can enjoy your coffee with a quick snack or a light dessert, while you check the map for the next destination or just relax and observe the passers-by in the bustle of the city.
They are famous for their vanilla slice (Crèmeschnitte) recipe. Here you can also find the traditional Romanian holiday sweet bread “cozonac”.
