I was very excited to visit the Book Cafe, as I am a huge book nerd and now a big coffee consumer. You enter through the main bookstore itself, which is charming and has an amazing selection - though if you are looking for English-translated books, you will locate these just to the left of the cafe itself in the...

An extravagantly decorated cafe in the top floor of a book shop that oozes splendour. While away your time listening to the pianist and eating cake! The menu is like a book with at least 20 different types of cake all ranging between 690-990 forint (approx £1.75-£3), all types of coffee, hot chocolate and bombardinos! You must while away some...

This was a very busy Cafe. The decor is amazing and so are the coffee and cakes. Most people had a cake and a drink and took many photos. A must do in Budapest.

A must do in Budapest - it's that simple! Great coffee, interesting architecture & still a book store. This will complete your trip here

If this cafe was in London, Rome or Paris it would cost you an arm and a leg and probably intimidating. Here its relaxed and inexpensive. Take your time and sit and enjoy this Art Nouveau masterpiece. Coffee and cakes are delicious

One of the most beautiful cafes I have ever visited. My husband and I went there for brunch one morning . Although the wait for the server was quite long, they were very kind. I think good service has more to do with being in Eastern Europe than anything else. Don't let that deter you, go for the cheese scones,... More

Amazing space - simply beautiful room in an unexpected building & location, close to the operahouse. Absolutely go there - it is an incredible space, with great service, good food (we had sandwiches), delicious drinks (coffee and hot chocolate were epic) and some delicious cakes. And great value too! Don't read any more reviews. Just go!

Great atmosphere, food and drinks were a little expensive compared to the rest of the city but were good. We had eggnog with amaretto and a classic hot chocolate with whipped cream. Service was prompt but a little impersonal. Nobody smiled here.

My husband found this on tripadvisor so we decided to go for lunch. What a wonderful surprise. It's a normal book store the first two floors then on the third is a gorgeous restaurant with high ceilings and frescoes. We wish we had a bigger appetite because after we had our sandwiches,which were yummy,we didn't have any room for all... More
