Breakfast places in Budapest are 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 Újlipótváros.
There isn’t anything profoundly unique about Café Panini’s croque madams (€6), frankfurters (€6), or ham and eggs (€5), 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. Café Panini's special perk is the scenic vista from its outdoor tables onto the Danube River and Margaret Island.
