Budapest

The only ambassador of minimalist Balinese style around Balaton, Mala Garden has recently added a new venue right next door, which operates during the summer as a kind of cross between a café and a restaurant – it has a more concise menu, but the fact that the cake selection changes every day makes up for the smaller number of options. The list, which comprises 55 items, is dominated by new wave trends and lots of inspiration from abroad: it has everything from Oreo cake and Catalan cream tart to crème brûlée. It’s very promising that the menu doesn’t even feature the cakes that are available each day; you’ll have to check out the cake display counter to see what kind of carbohydrate bombs the resident confectioner – who’s also worked at Centrál Café in Budapest – has dreamed up for the day and whipped up on the spot.
