Description: Located in the most peaceful part of District V in a small side street of Vaci Utca (Papnovelde utca 3.), BARBar Cafe & Chocolate is THE BEST chocolateria in this town! The owners, a young couple named Viki and Tomi, are very enthusiastic about the cafe and their aim is to make the guests utterly at home and relaxed in their cafe.The philosophy behind it is: using only high-quality ingredients for the preparation of coffees, lemonades and chocolates. For the chocolate drinks they buy real Belgian Callebaut chocolate (dark 70%, milk 47% or white 28% chocolate pastilles and not powder that is sued in most other Budapest cafes). The freshly made lemonade drinks (in ajam jar) are very refreshing on a sultry summer day. You can also have snacks, should you feel peckish: try the various spreads (aubergine spread, Italian pesto, spiced tomato cream). BARBar Cafe has laid-back atmosphere with warm colors and creative furnishing (refurbished Singer sewing machines serve as tables).

“One of the best cafehouses in Budapest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

As a born and raised Budapest(er):) and a great admirer of cafes I can say that BARBAR is one (if not the) of the best cafehouse of Budapest. The service is exceptional and so as the quality of the products and all that for reasonable pricing!!

“Enter a world of choc-delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Went there not two weeks ago on an afternoon. Cozy place with 2 levels and a great atmosphere, nice music and of course the obvious such as Wi-Fi. Very very friendly owner gave more info (friendly waiters in Budapest are an exception) and provided us with hot chocolate for my wife and chocolate with chili for me. Thanks to the Callebaut chocolate you cook taste the intense flavours. Modestly priced and a great lounge spot, it's a hidden gem in a nice neighborhood (Alibi Cafe and Hummus Bar are nearby). A must visit!
