  • Rarely can you see giant, life-size models of famous people made entirely out of marizpan. Worth a quick stop.  more »
  • You expect a small place at the second floor of a corner shop But it is magnificent ! Amazing what can be done with marzipan The kids really enjoy it Good for 20m max  more »
  • A small museum is on the second floor. Strikes, that everything is made by hand. Small details are simply staggering. Scenes from fairy tales, portraits, figures in full-length (Princess Diana and Michael Jackson), the houses of Parliament. There is a shop on the ground floor of marzipan sweets, Bought on trial several different candy. Really liked SÓS-KOCKA KARAMELLES (marzipan with a taste of salt-caramel)

  • The place looks very nice. We didn't see the museum but we ordered some slices of cake to take away plus some marzipan. The service was good and the place was very crowded
  • Some signs misspelt like 'ducgs or good bye' and 5 years ago I mentioned to the management. Today I found the same mistake, but the shop girl did not bothered, just talked back and shrugged her shoulder when I wanted speak with the manager. Bad manners!!!
  • Unbelievable that they can do from marzipan. Lovely little museum and you can buy some and relax with some drink and cake. The village is beautiful, many little shops, clothes, souvenirs and handcrafted works.
  • Excellent as usual. My favourite place fo cake and coffee.
  • Cute small museum, recomended If you go for a trip to snt andra and the area. Does not worth it to go out from budapest just for this (for turists in budapest from other countries)
