Keksz

Keksz is a popular café, bar, and restaurant, all in one, located at the entry point of Budapest's party district, under a stately arch. Most of Keksz's patrons are locals as the prices are somewhat lower than at comparable places nearby. For example, a glass of beer and wine cost less than €2 each. Somehow tourists haven't really discovered it, so Keksz almost feels like a neighborhood restaurant despite its central location.

Many people come here to fuel up on alcohol before a night of debauchery a few blocks away. If you enjoy IPAs, be sure to try "Keksz," their house beer on draft (€2). Although mainly a bar, Keksz has a full-service kitchen that makes perfectly satisfying all-day-breakfast dishes, burgers (€6), goulash soup (€4), and seasonally changing desserts.
