This is a small cafe situated in a nice little spot off of Váci Utca near the Danube River. I have only eaten breakfast here and have been here many times. The food is always delicious. It is a cute place to go to and...drink coffee and have breakfast. Kuglof is dependable and serves terrific food. I will continue to eat breakfast there as long as they keep up the great work.More

This is probably the best breakfast place in Budapest. The service is impeccable. The food is excellent and the dishes are very well made. Fine espresso. I cannot recommend this place more. Great experience. Thank you!

Found this little place on trip advisor, unfortunately the menu online is different to the one in store so not as expected. I had eggs Benedict which was spot on - the ham was excellent quality and very tasty. boyfriend didn't fancy anything on the...menu so had some bacon and bread rolls but bacon was dry. Maybe that's the Hungarian way though 🤷‍♀️ service was ok but could be better. I would recommend this place to eat.More

Small but clean breakfast cafe. Quick service. Clean environment. Open kitchen so you can see the chefs at work. Very cool. The french toast was delicious and the pancakes were also delightful. Good quality coffee and decent value for money. I would return here for...sure on my next visit.More

Cozy place with good options for breakfast. We ordered the breakfast platter and shared it - good amount of food for two people. The platter consisted of eggs, ham, sausage and bread. Overall a good place 😊

We were in Budapest for a couple of days and came across this cafe. We decided to have breakfast here and we really enjoyed it - food was good and the coffee was good. The only downside was that there is very little room inside....We were literally squashed in with barely enough room to slide onto our chairs. There was more room outside but we were there in winter and it was really cold. Nevertheless, it was a good, well-priced breakie and would recommend it. Try the liptauer - it's delicious.More

The absolute worst meal we had on our trip to Budapest. The “English breakfast” was so disgusting that we didn’t eat all of it. The waiter was really rude, and the music was so loud that we couldnt even talk to eachother. The “chef” and...the waiter went out the front door, to smoke right outside where the whole “restaurant” could see them. So disgusting. Oh, and we didn’t get all the food we ordered - but luckily that just meant that we could get out of there faster. Pick somewhere else!More

We had a great breakfast in a worm and cozy atmosphere. We ordered three different items from the menu and were all great. Highly recommended!

No, it isn’t. We didn’t have a reservation and there was a place to sit. We were there around 10:00 so I don’t know if it’s like that all the day.
