A 1960s remodeling left its mark on Cafe Korb, a historical cafe in the city center complete with linoleum floors and plastic-topped tables (the futuristic but impractical bathroom merits a visit to the below-ground level).

The prices reflect the downtown premium, but the food is very tasty – order the rich goulash soup when in doubt. There’s a charming outdoor area for the summer months, and a below-ground hall with live music concerts.
