Are you visiting Budapest anytime soon? During your city walk, enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a piece of delicious cake in one of these traditional, classic Cafés!
Once upon a time coffee houses were home to cultural life, writers and artists often gathered here. Average people enjoyed a cup of coffee mainly on Sundays. Today these old Cafés have their own style and atmosphere. The city is full of old and new, trendy places, everybody has its own favorite, here is my personal Top 3:
3rd Auguszt Confectionary - Tradition and style at one place
I love the city center, there is so much to discover there. Anytime I visit it with my guests, I usually invite them for a coffee at the Auguszt confectionary. There are three Auguszt confectioneries downtown offering the finest cakes in the center. The family-owned place is led by the 5th generation, the owners are managing the coffee house with passion and professionalism. The service is exceptional. Every year before Christmas, I buy the traditional nut and poppy seed roll here. Their specialty is the E80 cake, which was created by the family members to commemorate the 80th birthday of the founder Elek Auguszt. It is made with a rich chocolate filling and a thin marzipan layer in the middle and covered with light coffee cream. My downtown tour includes cake tasting at the Auguszt, come and explore this special place with me!
