What a beautiful building with a wonderful Beaux Arts Café as a surprise at the top of the building. A perfect place for coffee and beautiful patisserie to the accompaniment of a pianist. If you are a tea drinker you may want to consider another beverage as it's not the drink that we expect in the UK - it's a... More

We had a light lunch there just to sit in such surroundings. The food was good but the surroundings were fantastic.

Ceiling is worth viewing, but you not need to grab a drink to do this. Coffee was poor and expensive for local prices. Also the waiter didnt come back with my change, assumed it was a tip. Go in, take a photo, go elsewhere for a drink.

Recommended for people, who adore culture, beautiful old interiors and pastry. This place is a perfect mix of those. Combined with the leisurely atmosphere and attentive service - a great way to start the day. The prices are higher than in general at other places in Budapest, but quite normal for Europe. We selected French Creme, Croissants and Latte as... More

We went here because of the reviews that I'd seen on a trip advisor, the ceiling and architecture was amazing and it certainly raised the stakes for book shop cafes but the food was expensive by Budapest standards and you it's quality didn't quite match up to the price. It was a lovely book store though.

Located on the now very fashionable Andrassy Avenue, A hidden gem for the communist period, the ceiling is of especial beauty and a visit to see this architectural gem and enjoy a traditional cafe experience is strongly recommended.

The wonderful Lotz Hall (Lotz-terem in Hungarian) is located at the first floor of the Paris Department Store, a Neo-Renaissance building on Andrassy avenue; the hall is presently hosting the Alexandra Bookcafé. Once crossed the entry gate of the Department Store, you’ll be introduced in the Alexandra Bookstore; taking then the escalator just in front of the entrance, you’ll be... More

We went out of our way to find this place based on a friend's recommendation. While the café certainly is beautiful and unique, the food and service were nothing special. The menu is large and the photos help with the choosing, but when the sandwiches and salads arrived, they were average. The coffee was good, and there is a vast... More
