Liberté Budapest

Liberté is a chic breakfast restaurant located in an elite section of Budapest's downtown peppered with banks and near the Parliament building. The swanky interior design marries a high-end American diner with a French bistro. Liberté's menu includes on-trend international breakfast dishes and with Hungarian classics, meaning that you could very well pair a Hungarian goulash soup (€6) with an avocado toast (€6) or eggs Benedict (€6).

Although open all day, Liberté is best for breakfast or a boozy weekend brunch, as both the area and the restaurant can get deserted in the evenings. Once here, be sure not to miss the grand Liberty Square, around the corner from Liberté.
