Gerbaud Cafe

The crux of Gerbaud's philosophy is that they craft their products using only the highest quality, fresh ingredients. Their goal is to offer their guest, in addition to the traditional Hungarian products, unique, esthetic, cakes and pastries that can be found nowhere else in the country.

Book Cafe

A truly hidden gem. Find the Alexandra book shop on Andrassy Avenue and take the escalator to the 1st floor. If you find your mouth open for amazement you have found the place. This stunningly beautiful room was decorated by Mr Lotz, who was also responsible for the frescos in the Opera House. The room now houses a cafe where you can enjoy a wide variety of special coffees, cakes and sandwiches.

New York Cafe

The New York Café has lived through many eras, political systems and historical turning points. Still, it has always been reborn, sparkling and occupied by those who longed for its comforts: artists, members of the nobility and commoners alike. The Boscolo Group has reconstructed it in a way which reflects the tendency to regain its old patina and reputation ranking it as the “Most Beautiful Coffee House in the World”.

Szamos Gourmet Palace

In November 2011 Szamos Gourmet Ház at Vörösmarthy Square was opened. It is a sweet-shop, café and chocolate manufacturing shop at the same time. In its new shop Szamos lets its guests have an insight into the process of manufacturing handmade bonbons, and you may also get familiar with how air gets into the chocolate Santa clause.

Central Cafe

Respecting the traditions and being open to novelty. That describes Central Café the best. Rather than evoking the past they would like to revive the mentality that once made this place one of the intellectual centres of Budapest. We can only provide the "scenery", the delicate ambience, the delicious meals, the delightful desserts or refreshing drinks, the atmosphere is created by you. All of you who visit us for a cup of coffee in the morning, for a lunch at noon, for a glass of wine before going to the theater, for a light dinner after it or perhaps participate in one of our events as creative audience.
