Lovely and homey place, very firendly staff

This place has a lovely, mediterranean atmosphere. They offer lots of special cheeses, hams and home-made dips, I'd recommend to taste them. Drinks are also satisfying but nothing that special.

I have a good memory about this place, but recently very disappointed, they should change this manager, should be more kind a caring of. The sandwiches aren't good as before, it's a waste that this place lost its "appeal".

We had really high hopes for Szentendre. Promises of fine art and creative atmosphere. So when we were faced with tat shop after tat shop our bubble was burst. We stopped off at Dorothea and debated what could have caused a creative hot-spot to turn into a mass-produced awfulness. That is not to say that there are one or two... More

A very charming Café with loads of choices. We visited it at the daytime and the nigh at well and have to say outstanding. It's not just a Cafe where you can drink and go forward. The impression is very relaxing and so romantic. Definitely recommended!

I love the place, really cozy, nice and cute. But the best thing was the service, the waiter who attended us was one of the happiest and nicest person I ever meet, he made our day. Perfect place for relaxing and having a nice cafe.

We have been here so many times and we love it to bits. Drinks and food are great, nothing to complain. Love love love their hot chocolate! The inside part is a little bit small, so if you come during winter, you might have to squeeze a little on the couch with other guests. They put a heater outside during... More

Nice cosy cafe in a small side street close to main square - but despite the vicinity of the tourist masses it is quiet and relaxing, with a really nice terrace,I stop here for a coffee/lemonade/cake/etc whenever i visit Szentendre. Nice selection of Hungarian wines as well

Lovely place near the city centre, feel like in some mediterranean cafe, in a small street. Nice service, friendly waiter. Our coffe was nice, my boyfriend also thought his hot chocolate was a bit weak. Plus point, they welcome alley dogs and serve them water ☺️ nice place to have a rest, talk, drink a tea or coffee.

We stumbled upon this cafe while walking around the town. The atmosphere is very homely, the staff is very nice and the tomatoe soup was one of the best I've ever had!

Despite the several positive comments I do not recommend this bistro, as for it has a very bad price/quality rate - it is extremely expensive. It is not worth at all. I fully understand that Szentendre has become a place for rich tourists, and I have no problem spending on good things, but this bistro has nothing to do with... More
