Don't go, this shop is closed! We took a really long walk to get there, and it was closed because of renovations. Nobody said so inhere, so I think it's important to point out

If someone recommends Book Cafe – Lotz Terem to you, they're probably not doing so because of the food; it's very pricey and doesn't really live up to expectation. The recommendation will be based on the beauty of the venue – an experience that will...More

We came because of good reviews. The space is beautiful. But the service killed it. What a pity... such a beautiful coffee house but bad service.

An amazing place in Budapest - been here so long ago and kept telling people it exists, but couldn't actually remember where it was. Now I know. Good coffee, amazing cakes and grand piano - seriously, don't miss it!

Yes, you can park on the main streets, but it is not free, or you can find a parking garden in Nagymező street (between Király utca and Andrássy út) or in Mozsár street. Don't worry in this zone you always find a parking... More
