In Communist times the café was renamed Vörösmarty Cukrászda but its original name back after 1989.

The pronunciation is the same but the latter is the name of the most famous café in Budapest named after Swiss-born Emile Gerbeaud, while the first one, ’zserbó’ is the name of a walnut and chocolate rich layered pastry originating from the Gerbeud café.
