If you fancy a coffee in the most opulent surroundings possible without actually being in Budapest at the turn of the 20th century then it's worth a visit. Located at the very back of a fantastic bookstore itself worth a thorough browse - you can certainly find a better coffee ( or three for the same price! ) many places... More

We went for breakfast one day and lunch the next. I really enjoyed the spicy cottage cheese and salad. The atmosphere is sophisticated but relaxed.

The place is very nice, on the first floor they have a book store and on the upper level they have a resturant. The walls and the ceiling of the resturant are really amazing and drawn. The cakes were poor and tasteless.

Such a lovely. Beautiful and artistic cafe above the bookshop. It draws you in and holds you in. You feel like lingering over coffee and never wanting to leave. It's a short walk away from the Opera House so combine it with your visit there.

What an experience relaxing comfortable and most enjoyable Coffee, Cake, and chilling out. There must have been thousands and thousands of books of all sorts in this place. Staff were really very helpful and friendly. AQ must to visit again. We did not have a meal as we were eating later in the day.

Yes this, if you can find it, is one of Budapest's must go places. Sit & enjoy the decadent ambience of this very popular eating experience set in this large bookshop. From the outside it doesn't look much, but within it is a wow moment. The ceiling looks much better in true life than it does in photographs and to... More

A place you can visit and feel like a King! Amazing location on Andrassy utca and just a glorious indulgent dining room. We just had coffee and cake, but I'm already telling my friends that I will take them here if they come to Budapest.

Tucked away on the upper floors of the book shop, this cafe is a lovely stop for a coffee break. We stopped by in the evening, so we skipped the coffee and tried the hot chocolate, which was AMAZING! Staff was friendly, and service was quick. And the ceilings and walls were decorated in the most beautiful classic design. We... More
