We were attracted to Hauer by the exterior and were pleased to see the appealing array of pastries. Unfortunately, no one acknowledged our presence; no greeting, may I help you, nothing. In fact, one server turned her back on us. As there was no seating...More

A nice addition to District VIII. This is a beautiful little cake shop with a nice old fashioned design. It serves lovely cakes and traditional Hungarian desserts to your table. The staff is very attentive- a great place to sit and catch up with friends

With 1930's music playing you feel a bit like you've stepped back in time in this charming little cafe. The food, although a limited selection outside of pastries, was interesting, and reasonably priced.
