Very nice, typical and good self service restaurant. You can really find everything. Suitable for everyone. The location and environment are both great. Recommended.

Black Magic has a large selection of handmade candies, some made with Black Balsam liquer. Nice, relaxing decore.

Definitely take a look as this place made huge effort in terms of creating look and feel of authenticity. We loved the cellar which you enter via book shelf decorated door. The prices for drinks and desserts probably include the "museum ticket price" component :-). 4.30EUR for a tea?

An unusual chocolatier with lovely coffee & teas and the most wonderful selection of chocolates. You can even purchase a box of your favourites to take home. The staff are costumed so you instantly feel in another world and with dim lights & candles it’s very easy to forget about the snowstorm outside. Highly recommended.

Handy location in the Old Town. We passed it several times during our stay and decided to go in. Inside, the counter is a bit like an old apothecary, then there are armchairs and little tables scattered about - quite a homely feel.

i had the hot chocolate, which came as a cup of hot milk and a lump on chocolate on a stick to stir in. All hot drinks had a little meringue on the side. My husband tried a shot of original balsam, and wasn't too sure about it, but it's something to try while you're here.

We had a couple of different truffles, which were also tasty.

There's waiter service, but then you can go up to the counter to pay when you've finished. Credit cards accepted.
