A brunch place in a small street in central Budapest. The food selection is broad and the taste phenomenal. The queue becomes self-explanatory once your seat is given. Taste and how the food look is truely amazing. And it could be argued it is a...good price for what you get. If Mourinho is the 'special one' in football, Cirkusz is the 'special place' in brunchMore

We went there this morning as did lot of people. We were seated promptly as were everyone only three people were served. They had loads of waitresses all setting up tables as we the customers waited a simple coffee. Three times We asked the waitress...for a coffee and she abruptly told us and others we’ll be served shortly as they continued to set up tables???!!!! With customers waiting? For who? More customers to come and wait? We saw several people stand and leave and do did we. They claim George Clooney drinks their coffee but we all know he’s an Nespresso guy . Try Tel Aviv restaurants around the corner where we had a great coffee and breakfast with warm hospitality.More

Dear Sir, " Our espresso is the "what else" George Clooney was talking about " . It's just a witty sentence in the street on the facade of Cirkusz, people usually laugh when they understand the joke and they move on, it's not a big...More

Great service from start to finish, lovely looking place and a great meny. Both food and the drinks tasted delicious. A bit long waiting time but can't except anything else from a place that popular.

Just by chance we went in here for breakfast because it was about 2 doors away from where we were staying. The food was a lovely selection of eggs benedict, granola with yoghurt & fruit, pancakes and more. They are very serious about their coffee...although, as with everywhere in Budapest, the coffee never seemed especially hot. They fixed this when we asked. By the time our food was ordered there was a big queue out of the door. We noticed this on the next two days too so clearly a very popular spot. Get there early. Definitely worth adding this to your itinerary.More

Great place for brunch. We had to wait a little bit in order to get a seat, but the wait was definitely worth it. Recommended dishes: pulled pork Benedict’s eggs, caramel banana pancakes.

Hello, yes, we have English breakfast. The dish is tasty, but obviously not the same one you get in the UK, as we cannot get black pudding for instance. The main differences are that we use Hungarian sausages and... More
