Small place near main square, great athmosphere, tea and rum selection :-) Wines are also perfect and the way they serve it to you, as well. And it has soul again. Staff fantastic helpful and kind.

This place had delicious teas, salads, souls and about everything else is also delicious. The cosy atmosphere and friendly service rounds it off nicely. Would love to come back!

We had a great vegetarian lunch here - interesting little place and well worth hunting out if you are in the area. The broccoli soup was excellent and the beer was very reasonably priced. They didn't have any of their meat options available when we visited, perhaps this was due to it being winter when the place is far less... More

We had a wonderful lunch. Cozy seating that included a sleepy cat, great food, and interesting art and music. Would go back again and again if I could.

The food here is mostly vegetarian and mostly sandwiches. It is also hidden in a steep, narrow alley off of a side street, so it is not easy to find. Most of the seating is outside, although they do have a small inside room. The food is not special for a devout carnivore like myself, HOWEVER>>> Someone here orders Single... More

I have a good memory about this place, but recently very disappointed, they should change this manager, should be more kind a caring of. The sandwiches aren't good as before, it's a waste that this place lost its "appeal".

This place has a lovely, mediterranean atmosphere. They offer lots of special cheeses, hams and home-made dips, I'd recommend to taste them. Drinks are also satisfying but nothing that special. The waiter was really friendly and service was quick. The only con is its size: since the place is quite small, it feels a little bit crowded.

We had really high hopes for Szentendre. Promises of fine art and creative atmosphere. So when we were faced with tat shop after tat shop our bubble was burst. We stopped off at Dorothea and debated what could have caused a creative hot-spot to turn into a mass-produced awfulness. That is not to say that there are one or two... More

A very charming Café with loads of choices. We visited it at the daytime and the nigh at well and have to say outstanding. It's not just a Cafe where you can drink and go forward. The impression is very relaxing and so romantic. Definitely recommended!
