We had a complimentary breakfast included with our apartment package which seemed to be recognised less and less as our week stay progressed. From the start we had coffee, juice and a croissant which we upgraded several times over the following days (at our own cost). By the end we struggled to get a croissant on its own. At this... More

The place is at at Egyetem Ter, lots of tables outside with sun shades. This was important as the temperature was over 30 deg C. We took the Alibi breakfast for two, which was just right for two hungry people, Goat Cheese and ham on a large salad bed. Additonally there was a basket of breads, freshly squeezed orange juice...

I actually had to throw my americano away it was so bad. The outside seating looks lovely and I haven't had the food hence the 3 stars.

Had breakfast at the Cafe Alibi today with my wife as an alternative to the seemingly overpriced hotel breakfast. We were thrilled with our selection. The Cafe offered covered patio seating and even had misters going keeping the atmosphere very comfortable. I ordered an Americano as well as the bacon and eggs. My wife ordered a Frappe and the eggs... More

My traveling companions and I enjoyed hearty breakfast and freshly ground coffee drinks plus exceptional service by our waitress Barbara. Our experience was so delightful that we returned the next morning. My scrambled eggs with ham and cheese was not only delicious, but beautifully presented. The portion was more than sufficient. Others in my party were equally enthusiastic about their... More

A perfect way to start the day having breakfast before a full day of drinking & sightseeing, great food , atmosphere and setting, helped by the 30 degrees heat. The staff were impeccable especially the attractive blonde who worked there who took our breath away, we will be back even maybe take my wife !

Came with a group of friends from Australia. We were looking for some Hungarian food that wasn't a tourist destination and we found it here! With items on the menu like duck ragu and succulent cat fish how could you walk past. It really is a must for any foodie.

Chanced this place walking through the area and couldn't have been any better! Had the roasted rabbit liver and shared all the desserts, left us constantly moaning and nodding all night.

I was with a group of 9 men, the bar staff made us feel welcome, this became our 'local' for 4 days, many breakfasts and brunches and often... More
