If you fancy good quality for a decent price and in a great location, then this is your place. Szamos originally operates cafe houses but here you can have proper lunch for reasonable prices (6 euro for lunch menu of 2 courses). If you want to avoid the tourist traps, these cafes are all over the city, even in the outskirts. The building itself is superb, it used to house the first stock exchange in Budapest. If you pass by the counter to the left, you enter a smaller room from where you can watch through the huge window glass the team builders/bd party people preparing marzipan roses. The little girl next to our table was glued to the window, she is right it is fun to watch others. My friend comes here for the goulash soup, it is decent though the colour could show more paprika. I chose somloi galuska, Szamos is the only place where you can never fail this traditional cake. Also, try the cake with the plum in the middle!
