Gerlóczy is an excellent establishment! Here again, it reminds a bit of France, especially because of its Art Nouveau architecture and the surroundings of the Kammermeyer square. For breakfast, go for the goat cheese and ham quiche. It is the house dish. For those who are not so keen, the chef’s croissants are excellent. The establishment is located at Gerlóczy u. 1.

The favorite place of trendy tourists. Szimply is a small restaurant open all day. The menu is very light, quick to skim, but the dishes are simply exquisite. There are some classics, including avocado toast with chickpeas, beets, pickled onions and arugula.

The menu changes seasonally, but is generally rich in vegan and gluten-free options. For drinks, the house coffee is really not bad. In short, this is a friendly, dynamic and above all very good establishment, which we recommend you to discover.

Börze is located next to the Budapest stock exchange. Despite this proximity, the place is simple and not very chic. On the contrary, it is a very classic establishment. The breakfast is quite complete, you can order a little bit of everything, from scrambled eggs to granola. What makes the difference? The bundás kenyér. The Hungarian version of French toast. Here it’s stuffed with ham and cheese and served with garlic sour cream. One of the best brunches in Budapest.

Szimpla Kert is very popular among Hungarians. The place is located in the heart of an old disused factory, which has since been transformed into a cinema, pub and other small restaurants. Many concerts, performances and exhibitions are held there. The place gives off a slight hint of madness. A real enthusiasm that is later reflected in your plate. The breakfast is quite classic, but really very good.
