What a gem of a restaurant and general experience located on a side street along with a lot of other cafes. The service was friendly, efficient and helpful suggesting a special red wine that was recommended by the owner. This is a cozy, artsy cafe...More

Sweet ambience and lovely jazz offered. There is a 1000ft cover charge. You will be up close and personal with other patrons and musicians. Menu is underwhelming, but okay. Located on Ráday utca, caters to a wide array. Mellow place, closes early

IF cafe is located on quite a long street in the city centre. The area is safe and there are always lots of people around because of the number of cafes, bars and restaurants on this street.
