“Best espresso in Budapest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I read an article about the owner who was skilled his barista trade in London by a world class guy. OK here we go! I was all over the place to drink a decent coffee in Budapest but 99% of the coffee shops are uneducated portafilter twisters serving you watered down coffee drinks. Not here, I ordered an espresso and it was like jumping into the cold Atlantic after a dusty hot day walking the streets. The barista was very kind and informative. I like dark roast beans but that's just my personal preference. Keep up the good work!

“Amazing coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

If you appreciate really good coffee, this is your place. In my several visits, I've had espresso, a flat white, and a cortado, all delicious and prepared by friendly staff. A tad more expensive than some of Budapest's other good coffee places, but worth it. Yum!

“best coffee in Budapest - hands down.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

What else to say besides no other coffee in Budapest comes close. If you want real coffee in this city - you will find it here. Super friendly baristas, whom I assume are the owners too. Dont miss this place.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

If you come here for a coffe you can be sure the people behind the bar, has so much experience.. they are kind and do not just want profit, they want to let people know what coffee really means for them :)

Go and ask for some filter coffee, those are the best :)

They have unique tap water so it is also make the coffee better
