Kino is a laid-back, breakfast-all-day restaurant set along Budapest's Grand Boulevard. The interior is draped in movie posters as Kino occupies the ticketing area of an independent movie theater. Kino serves low-priced and tasty breakfast dishes seven days a week—when in doubt, go for the hearty "Hungarian" scrambled eggs packing bacon, sausage, tomatoes, and a sprinkle of grated cheese (€3). Also, the cakes displayed behind the glass taste just as good as they look.

Kino doesn't mind lingering—it's not uncommon that customers settle in with their laptops for hours on end on a lazy Sunday morning. In case you've wondered, the impressive-looking Baroque Revival building next door is Vígszínház, one of the leading Budapest theaters.
