Csiga is a popular café and restaurant in the outer part of District 8, a bit away from city center. The neighborhood, situated just outside the Grand Boulevard, is increasingly sought after as locals turn their backs to the tourist throngs and sky-high prices of the party district.
While the food is unlikely to blow your mind, the main attraction of Csiga is the unpretentious, all-welcoming space featuring a dramatically high ceiling, wood finishes, and greenery. Csiga has long been known as a charming hideaway where both locals and visitors could feel at home, and one that works equally well for a plate of scrambled eggs in the morning and a beer at night. Recently, however, they've meaningfully raised the prices, which has lead to an erosion of local patrons, leaving the space mostly to tourists.
