Apricot Coffee

Apricot is a small and inviting specialty coffee shop in Budapest's Palace Quarter of District 8. They serve both espresso-based (cortado, flat white, cappuccino, latte) and filter coffees (V60, Aeropress, cold brews). Also here: morning pastries, a wonderful cherry-and-pistachio cake, and tasty grilled sandwiches. You could amble over to the nearby National Museum to see its astonishing exhibition or the palatial homes that ring it (once the homes of the Hungarian aristocracy).
