Sopron’s top restaurant by a long shot is located inside this family-owned boutique hotel. The food — updated, beautifully plated local classics — could stand up to those at Budapest's leading restaurants. The wine list features local producers. A bakery abuts the main building, serving a range of freshly made breakfast pastries.
This 8-room boutique hotel in Sopron’s city center has many things going for it: a nicely refurbished historic building standing on medieval walls; spacious and comfortable rooms; generous breakfast; and a kind and informative family staff who is happy to provide recommendations. Parking is available around the corner from the hotel.
If you enjoy extra space with your accommodation, I recommend this modern apartment building located comfortably near the city center. The six tidy apartments belong to local winemaker Ágnes Zachár and her family.
Harrer Cukrászda (location)
Hiding within a nondescript passageway off the main street, Harrer is the iconic pastry shop of Sopron. Take a glance at the striking, pastry-laden display before you order. You can’t really go wrong with anything here but keep a special eye out for those made with chocolate (lido, for example) as the Harrer family also has a chocolate production plant in Sopron (which can be visited).
Placz Cafe 1379 (location)
A specialty coffee shop overlooking Sopron’s beautifully restored main square. The coffee is new wave, the internet broadband, the service kind.
One of Sopron’s main depositories for specialty coffee. The outdoor terrace is especially good for observing the comings and goings of the city's main street. Apart from a range of coffees, they also serve breakfast food (prices are steep!).
