Went for a drink and sandwich while in the castle district. Beautiful quaint restaurant, very friendly owner. One of the best toasted sandwiches I've tasted. Good beer and good mulled wine. Lovely little cafe.

Little gem of a cafe for lunch. You might pass by without even realizing. Tastiest, best made toasted ham and cheese sandwich with a lovely spicy sauce on the side. Highly recommend for a sandwich or a cake.

I visited this café for lunch while I was touring the castle district. I had planned to do so for many days before visiting Budapest, as I came across the café while researching my itinerary and I figured it is probably the best place to...have lunch in while visiting Buda Castle. Even my Buda tour guide recommended it. When the day of my visit finally came, I was not disappointed. The location is perfect - very close to Matthias church and Fisherman's Bastion, but it is in a quiet street just off of all the busy areas. They have a good selection despite the small size of the shop - lots of different coffees, cakes, milkshakes and even sandwiches. The food was good and decently priced. The lady in charge was very friendly and helpful. I regret only coming here once as all the cakes looked delicious. I will definitely visit the café again the next time I am in Budapest.More

We stopped here on our way to the museum for a bite to eat and some coffee. Lovely building with nice seating where you can watch the world pass by. The staff are lovely - friendly and very efficient. We had coffee, toasted cheese and...salami sandwiches and a slice of delicious cake. RecommendedMore

This delightful little cafe is just a five-minute walk from the very populated tourist attractions of the Mátyás Templom and Ruszwurm café on Castle Hill in Budapest, and yet is a small oasis of peace and tranquility, with excellent coffee (see pic.) and very friendly...service. Highly recommended.More

The cafe is super cozy and quiet, although it is very close to to the main tourist attractions in the Buda castle district. It is perfect for winding down or taking a quick break in between. The service is great, with very delicious food and...drink, you can really tell that everything is prepared an taken care of with lots of dedication and love.More

This is such a lovely cafe, just a 2-minute walk past the fisherman's bastion in Budapest. Me and my partner stumbled across it and we're so glad we did, enjoyed some nice cake and really delicious coffee, as good as I've had in a long...time. Why people would pay for over-priced franchise shop coffee when there are places with charm and far better coffee like this is crazy. The lady who served us was also very friendly. I would highly recommend this cafe for anyone exploring Buda castle or the other sights this side of the Danube.More

I happened upon this lovely cafe as I was exploring the castle district of Buda today. So much Hungarian charm and the owners were so lovely and welcoming. I had a fantastic cup of coffee and had i not just eaten, i would have indulged...in a cake, all of which looked scrumptious. If you are anywhere near the castle then please hunt this cafe out. It is well worth a visit. You won't be disappointed!More
