“The perfect breakfast place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We wanted more than a bakery for breakfast and came across Go-Free's waffle, breakfast and smoothie bar. You order down stairs and then eat upstairs. The decorations are cute and has an artsy feel to it. I totally recommend it for a simple breakfast.

“Stick to the Waffles”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

This place is touted as a 'Breakfast & Shake Bar', the menu lists an impressive range of options, which all look great...it's a shame then that they can't actually produce them. Asked for scrambled eggs, but the server didn't seem to think that was feasible, so settled for an omelette instead. Asked for mushrooms with it (on the menu)...no mushrooms. Was still hopeful at this point, despite the gruffness of the server, but unfortunately those hopes were dashed with the end result. The omelette was cooked to death, burnt in places, and entirely unseasoned. I'm sorry but if you can't master the simple art of omelette making, then you have no right to call yourself a breakfast bar. To be fair, the waffles look very good, but you should be able to produce everything on your menu or not put it on there at all.

Our woeful experience was topped of by grumpiest waitress in Budapest. It's a shame as it's a nicely done up space, that had looked promising, and would be great if done right.

“Freshly baked Belgian waffles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Want to taste BIG Belgian waffles topped with chocolate, nutella, fruits, ice cream, jam, whipped cream? You can choose whichever you like or combine the toppings. Delicious and heavyweigt dessert, so make sure that you have some space in your stomach to have this -one is enough for most of us :) Space is limited, but really nice! Worth of visit!
