We ordered a plate that had two sausages, bread and slaw. (See the picture) One coffee and one tea. The total was 20 euros and it wasn't even good sausage. Avoid this place unless you are on an expense account or someone else (like your boss) tells you to meet them there. The service was vacant most the time also,... More

I've been there a couple of times in the last two months. It's an ideal place for business meeting, however, there are sometimes no free tables in the evenings.

before going to national museum, I dropped by here for my breakfast.... after days of localized western breakfast, at least breakfast here is mostly alike to what I have everyday. bagels here is nice. but coffee is just okay.. so no complain.. I would say here the food is average, but extra credits to the Internet here... fast and stable..

The hot chocolate is a must have! It's so cheap and tastes so lovely! I've been having the Nutella muffins and they're the best out of them all (personally). This is a great place to stop for a chat and grab a coffee!

The california coffee is so beautiful place but the water's is not so kind because I saw they were so tired! Why have they work such a lot when if they work a litle bit fewer than they will be more kind with the guest! Hey Boss!

This is just your average, run-of-the-mill coffee shop. Coffee is by no means anything special, walk a few blocks away and you can find much better (and cheaper) coffee. Pastries were good, but again, you don't have to look hard to find better in Budapest. Wifi is the only major bonus over some cafés in the area. I would highly... More

Modern and cozy place, the internet is very good (Im currently using it to write this :p ), and I found the price reasonable (however being Swiss I may not be a good reference).

...especially if you don't have much time to discover places to eat. You can have breakfast as well as lunch if you're in a hurry. Prices are fair, nice food and drinks, and the lovely, quiet atmosphere reminded us of our university years

I'm a huge fan of coffee and if you're like me you're in for a big disappointment by visiting this place. Coffee is overpriced and comes in an unstylish water glass rather than a mug. There is no heart in the preparation either. Seems to me that the girls are not real barristas even though the equipment is professional. I... More
