Keksz is a hybrid space located under a stately arch at the entry point of Budapest's party district. It's part café, part restaurant, part bar, all in one. Apart from the breakfast-all-day offerings, there are a handful forgettable traditional Hungarian dishes including a goulash soup (€5), catfish paprikash (€7), and lecsó (€6), which is similar to a ratatouille. You're best off sticking to basic breakfast foods like the scrambled eggs (€4) or the panini selections (€6). Alternatively, you can build your own salad from a set of ingredients.
The crowd consists of a healthy mix of locals and tourists, many of whom come only for coffee or drinks, which are reasonably priced compared with the neighborhood's increasingly elevated price points. For example, a glass of beer or wine run than €2 each—if you enjoy IPAs, be sure to try "Keksz," their house beer on draft. In the evenings, many people come here to fuel up on alcohol before a night of debauchery just blocks away.
