Konditorei Kormuth is unique in many ways, including its ceilings and walls graced with original Renaissance frescoes, complimented by 16th-19th century antique furniture! The Old Town confectionery is on Sedlárská Street, located near Hlavne Namestie (main square), the Slovak National Theatre, and Maximillian’s Fountain, one of over 140 fountains in Bratislava!
The front of the pastry shop has floor-to-ceiling windows, so it’s almost like being outside, except you’re surrounded by magnificent paintings. History dates back to before the war and during the period of Slovak socialism 1969-1990. After 1990, the pastry shop was renovated by the current owner.
The divine cakes are made with the finest ingredients, including “supreme jams with the highest content of fruit, free-range eggs, proper butter, the best French chocolate, authentic walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts from Piemonte, and genuine marzipan”. The fresh lemongrass ginger tea was so delicious, I bought some.
I’ll be in Bratislava until early November and am slowly learning my way around, as perfect autumn weather continues. The architecture is exquisite, and I’ve yet to visit the castles or explore the Danube River Promenade. There’s a lovely ambience in Bratislava, and Slovak Philharmonic, ballet, and opera performances are on my October agenda – with easily accessible venues via tram.
