Csiga is a popular café and restaurant in the increasingly trendy outer part of District 8, a bit outside the city center. The neighborhood, situated just beyond the Grand Boulevard, is rising to cool-status as people avoid the crowds swarming the bars and restaurants of the Jewish Quarter.
While the food is unlikely to blow your mind, Csiga's main attraction is the unpretentious, high-ceilinged space festooned with lots of wood and greenery. It has long been known as an all-welcoming café where locals and tourists can feel at home and a place that works just as well for an evening drink as for an egg-based breakfast (served until noon). Recently, however, Csiga has begun to raise prices, leading to an erosion of local patrons and leaving the space mostly to tourists.
