Breakfast places in Budapest are still few and far between, and the ones that do exist are mostly in downtown, catering to tourists. This isn't the case with Café Panini, a chic neighborhood breakfast restaurant inside the secluded world of middle-class Újlipótváros.

There isn’t anything profoundly unique about Café Panini’s croque madams, frankfurters, or ham and eggs, but they’re tasty, reasonably priced, and they exist! Breakfast and brunch is served all day on weekends, until noon on weekdays, with a range of Hungarian beer and wine to help lift the mood. The crowd is easy-going, and consists of a cross section of the neighborhood. A special perk is the scenic view form the outdoor tables onto the Danube River and Margaret Island.
