Cheap, cheerful and friendly. If warm enough sit outside and watch the buzz of Budapest go by. By British standards you won't find wine cheaper than here! Myself and husband really try and speak some Hungarian and it's appreciated here.

The place is an average loud and noisy pub with a lot of young people, cigarette smoke, common drinks and a few snacks/sandwiches. Don't expect any special stuff here. It is an OK pub, but there are much better places in the area.

This pub is located close to the Blaha Lujza square. The inner part is pretty big, however the seats are very limited outside. Prices are okay.

Nothing fancy but good prices and good variety. Coffee is quite good, not a proper coffee house but OK. It has a nice terrace with roof where you can also smoke. They are also selling paninis.

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
