They have the best cakes and sweets in the town! The macarroon with red fruits is a must! Nice area, beautiful and small place... perfect for a desert and afternoon coffee.

The store has been around for years and has a nice backstory (Kurt Deichmann, a German fleeing the war, opened the bakery in the 1940s).

Used to be considered as the best a years a go, people still have them as good, but I particularly think products are not as good they were, serving dry cakes and ugly type of hand made desserts.

Kurt is an old 'confiserie' in Leblon where you can find a good cake, have a coffee or tea, and take some cookies home. Founded by Mr. Kurt, an Austrian imigrant from the XX century, it's now runed by her daughter who manteined their best recipes. Try the apfelstrudel or the strawberry pie!

A cafe worth taking time to visit even if it's out of the way. I went with group of friends and tried several different pastries and cakes along with coffee. Loved most of them and is ideally located in great neighborhood.
