Essential part of a visit to Szentendre

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

We got by coincidence for a coffee after long walk in the village. The atmosphere and the decoration were welcoming and the manager was pleasant and nice. We didn't eat but I'll remember and recommend the place to my friends and to anyone who read this review

I have been here with my wife a couple of times. First we were just walking around and find this place just right at a corner, decided to stop. One of the best decisions. The place has a really friendly, cozy feeling, and hands down they do the best lemonade I have ever tasted. So perfect. We always have the... More

This is a very cozy cafe with a very friendly staff. Their cheese platter is also very good! However, the service is quite slow, and my sister's goat cheese salad was pretty lame. Nice experience, but I don't think we'll be back...

Cozy, nice place with great selection of teas and snacks. Casual service, lovely area. When the weather permits take a sit outside on the terrace, even in winter time! We found this place by accidently but definitely plan to return. The staff was ready to serve our little daughter's strange wishes as well to feed her in lunch time. The... More

Fantastic atmosphere. Special home-made food and carefully selected rare beverages. Don't rush when coming here, be prepared to spend some time. This is no Mc'Donald's! ;) The place is small so try to visit out of busy time. The service is extraordinary. Tamas is all smiles and will talk you into some truly special treats. Just lean on his advice.... More
