Neighborhood: District V / Inner City
Description: Located in the most peaceful part of District V in a small side street of Vaci Utca (Papnovelde utca 3.), BARBar Cafe & Chocolate is THE BEST chocolateria in this town! The owners, a young couple named Viki and Tomi, are very enthusiastic about the cafe and their aim is to make the guests utterly at home and relaxed in their cafe.The philosophy behind it is: using only high-quality ingredients for the preparation of coffees, lemonades and chocolates. For the chocolate drinks they buy real Belgian Callebaut chocolate (dark 70%, milk 47% or white 28% chocolate pastilles and not powder that is sued in most other Budapest cafes). The freshly made lemonade drinks (in ajam jar) are very refreshing on a sultry summer day. You can also have snacks, should you feel peckish: try the various spreads (aubergine spread, Italian pesto, spiced tomato cream). BARBar Cafe has laid-back atmosphere with warm colors and creative furnishing (refurbished Singer sewing machines serve as tables).

Lovely place, with real chocolate! Here the hot chocolates have all the ingredient needed, they are dense and delicious.
The place is in the heart of Budapest, with a nice atmosphere, a good place to get some warm drink in a winter day or refresh in a summer day. In summer they have special lemonades, that are served in big bottles, and are full of fruits! I am looking forward this summer to go and try the new ice chocolates!

Tried your lemonade flavoured with cherry and loved it so much. It tastes exactly how fresh lemonade should taste. That flavour absolutely delicious! I liked also the shape of your lemonades' bottle, that's unique. Can't wait to get some more.

If you visit Budapest you must go to BARbár Cafe! We have been there on a hot summer day and our friends led us there. The street is in the heart of Budapest, near to Vaci street which is mainly for us, tourists. But this place show you the real Budapest: nice, romantic, cobblestone streets; people sitting outside, talking and relaxing after the day, having fun. I can't imagine better place for this then BARbár: we had lemonade (with Pálinka :)) in a jam jar and snacks: eggplant cream, tortilla chips, and toast sandwiches. It was fantastic and I loved the jam jar!! And guess what, next time when we visited Budapest, during winter time we saw that other bars using the jam jar too, but it was not the same feeling.
On our second visit in Budapest we went back to BARbár Cafe and the owners recongize us!! It was amazing! This time we tried the hot chocholates and it was the best in my life!! From real chocholate!! Since then I know what a hot chocholate really is!
I am longing to go back to BARbár and our next visit is really close, in May! The weather is hot in Budapest as I heard so we will have another lovely icy drink like BARbár style: in a jam jar!

Worth to go there not just in the wintertime, they make the same quality of chocolate also cold!
We had a nice cold chocolate drink with home made fruity chocolate ice-cream - white chocolate ice-cream with strawberry, the other one with sour cherry, with cold liquid chocolate, and some whipped cream on the top, certainly. The lemonade in the jam jar is funny, but excellent and full of fruits, so is the best in summer. Nice and wonderful cafe!
