The recently restored garden of the Hungarian National Museum is an amazingly relaxing and wonderful hangout, filled with greens, benches, and sculptures. This peaceful island hides also Geraldine pastry shop, inside a small Neoclassical building that was once the gardener’s house. In the cold months, tuck yourself into a corner of the “winter garden” with large windows, otherwise the outdoor terrace is most enjoyable. Classic and modern pastries are served, both delicious and sourced by the Auguszt family dynasty to which this location also belongs.
