The raspberry ginger lemonade is a delicious refreshing beverage that you should try. The staff is a bit rude and ignored our table even though the sign said non self service.

Note: to enter you must go into the restaurant "Szamos Cafe" and go to 2 floor and there it is. :) In fact, it's deeper, than it seems. There's an interesting story behind this place, it was built by an engineer working in confectionery production,...More
