The Old Danube
The Old Danube in Helensvale Plaza is famous for European cakes – and when people line up out the door for a slither of these famous eye-catching treats, you know they must be something special. For those familiar with the European cake lingo, there are slices of Hungarian dobos (layer cake with a caramelised coffee top), eszterhazy (vanilla cream and walnut sponge cake) and kasekuchen (German cheesecake) going out the door like there’s no tomorrow. The Old Danube serves up great coffee, light breakfasts and various lunch options too – including a must-try Hungarian goulash. You can rest easy when you bite into your cherry strudel knowing it was made at the hands of a specialist pastry chef with more than 20 years experience.
