This is a must do for anyone visiting Budapest. Discreetly hidden on one of the floors of this stunning art nouveau building housing a bookshop, it is well worth seeking out, if only to relax in one of the most beautiful rooms in Budapest whilst enjoying one of the best tasting coffees in town. Also recommend the Vhalrona (high quality... More

I came here with a friend to have a break from visiting the city and we couldn't have chosen better! Perfect place to relax a bit after having spent the day sightising. The music played at the piano makes the place even more relaxing and the decor is just delightful. Highly recommended.

This is a must! The hot chocolate is amazing!! and they have other yum things too. But it's the grand setting of the café that makes it spectacular. It is a challenge to find and so you may need to ask for directions.

A fellow guest recommend this to us and given how cold it was during our stay in Budapest it was a great place to stop in for a break from the cold while walking around. Located on the 2nd floor above a book store you had to be looking to find it. An absolutely beautiful room with opulent ceiling paintings... More

Just a beautiful room to enjoy a coffee and soak up the atmosphere. Marvellous selection of cakes and hot chocolate. A pianist and singer also entertain you. The bookshop in contrast is very modern.
