Gentry Coffee & Brunch

Gentry is a high-end specialty café and breakfast restaurant located on a charming and surprisingly calm side street in Budapest’s downtown. The dishes comprise on-trend breakfast fare along the lines of avocado toast and American-style pancakes, but they’re much tastier and prettier than what you might be used to. I also had a delicious roasted white sausage here with French toast. Both espresso-based and filter coffees are available. If it’s full on the upstairs level, there’s seating below-ground, too. Note that price points are high for Budapest (another downside in the summer is the lack of an AC unit).

To remain unbiased, I visit all places incognito and pay for my own meals and drinks. I never accept money in exchange for coverage. But this means I must rely on readers to support my work.
