We ordered a chai latte and a long coffee. The chai latte basically didn't have any tea in it, it was lukewarm milk with too much nutmeg, and the coffee was watered up even for a long coffee. I don't know what is their speciality...More

We are well known for our coffee. Definetly not for those products, where you don't taste the real coffee intensively. Our long coffee and americano are watered espressos, this is the way we prepare them for years. Our regulars seem to be happy. The chai...More

Nice place to stop by, but not as exceptional as many reviews claim here. I had a breakfast here and everything was fresh and tasted decently. A service is a bit slow. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

The menu was small, but includes options for everyone - duck, fish, beef, pork, vegetables and chicken. I would rather have it this way than a large menu with uneven selections. I had the salmon with vegetables and my husband had the duck with pears....More

We stopped in the square and ordered two beers. They took at least 15 minutes to arrive. When they did arrive they had not much head and were pretty flat. Other patrons looked unhappy with their choices.More

Located on small square with very nice outside setting. The atmosphere in the quiet summer morning is so pleasant. We had breakfast there every morning. Service is fast and good, breakfast menu is fine, includes continental options and local style omelette. Good value for money.

Prices in restaurants are very reasonable in Budapest and this cafe really serves perfect dishes for a good price. The deserts come from a ice salon next door and are very creative. Personnel is very friendly and professional. Great place!

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
