The Buda side of the city has begun to catch up to Pest when it comes to having chic, new-wave breakfast joints. New wave? The kinds of places that cater to global tastes with dishes that wouldn’t seem out of place anywhere from Sydney to San Francisco: avocado toast, eggs Benedict, omelets, pancake, granola bowl, you name it. There’s nothing memorable about Cinnamon’s all-day breakfast dishes, but they’re perfectly satisfying (a highlight is the apple-custard-filled cinnamon donut).
In the mornings, slick office workers swarm Cinnamon's tables or drop by for their coffee fix, so a short wait is not unusual during peak breakfast hours. By lunch-time, tourists tend to emerge for a sleepy breakfast.
