Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went to visit this place based on positive reviews, however, we were pretty much dissapointed. We were sitting outside waiting for the waitress to come, despite she obviously saw us when we got there, she did not even try to get to our table...and ask for the order. I am quite patient, but we felt like we are not welcome here at all, so after 20-30 minutes of waiting with no service we just left this place...More

Cozy place offers coffee, homemade cakes & lemonades and long drinks. The cakes are fabulous, e.g. "bez bez torta" (gluten free raw cake made of nuts, chocolate and small berries on top without milk). It's a pity the coffee is only 75:25 arabica to robusta,...but it is fine as a cappuccino.More

Cozy place and a good coffee - guarantee of a good cafe. Plus the cakes looks so delicious. I have to say the staff was very nice and friendly and they offer many kinds of tea, some really interesting ones. So thanks for nice place...to chill in Bánska ŠtiavnicaMore

What a great coffee shop. The 4 of us visited shortly after noon and were very pleased. The waitress promptly took our order and we were offed a vast array of sweets, cheesecakes and chocolate delicacies. The coffee was delicious as was the raspberry cheesecake...that I tried. Everyone in our party was pleased and the cost was very reasonable. Go ahead and give them a try, you won't be disappointed.More

Great deserts, good coffee, very kids-friendly. Top notch design and feel to the place. It's all in the shadow, so we cooled down a bit on a hot day

A friend recommended me to visit this place, so I did. I admit that the cakes are amongst the best (if not the best) I have tasted in Banska Stiavnica. Unfortunately this cafe also suffers from common slovak behaviour - charging the customers for a...glass of tap water. I have little tolerance for this, especially if the price of tap water is equal to other items on drinks menu.More

At the time of our visit it was an incredibly hot summer day and we were very glad to take a seat in the courtyard behind this coffee-shop. The town was busy with some festivities on this day and as such quite a number of...other folks were also sitting outside but we managed to find a good spot. There was gentle jazz music being played by a musician which was a nice touch and not so overwhelming in volume as to prohibit conversation the music seemed to be pleasing the assembled customers as much as as myself and we all gave conservative cricket-type applause between the numbers. W both ordered bottles of very fine quality "Fentimans" drinks.. an English variety familiar to me, of natural botanically brewed soft-drinks.. in this case for myself I ordered Elder flower and for my wife Rose Lemonade.. both were splendid .. but could perhaps of been a little colder. They also serve fresh coffee and a fine selection of cakes both of which we have sampled in the past but on this occasion were more than happy with our bottles of British Lemonade. This place is well worth a visit if you are in town, and I would thoroughly recommend it.More
