Escape the noisy downtown street and enter through the yellow ceramic tiles into the 19th century courtyard of Fekete, a hip café and all-day-breakfast restaurant. The marble well in the center of the tranquil courtyard is one of those Budapest surprises hiding behind many sooty facades. Weather permitting, enjoy your morning coffee in the open-air courtyard.

Fekete serves a range of on-trend dishes like shakshuka (€6), granola (€5), and quiche (€5). Pricey new-wave coffee, both espresso-based and hand pour-overs, are also available along with bottled craft beers to help lift the mood. The inside is decorated according to contemporary design trends, featuring small wooden tables, Edison light bulbs, and a communal table doubling as the counter space.

Fekete is a very popular tourist destination, so there's often a wait, especially on weekends. The place is most enjoyable during the warmer months once the spacious courtyard has opened.
