Mantra Specialty Coffee Bar

Mantra is a specialty coffee shop located on a quaint downtown backstreet in Budapest. The street is lined with trees and wrought-iron street lamps. Ironically, it's just a block away from the tourist-heavy Váci Street. From the ever-changing light-roasted coffee beans Mantra might use Ethiopian, Brazilian, and Honduran selections on any given day for their filter and espresso-based coffees. AeroPress, Chemex, V60, and Gina are just some of the equipment available for the filter coffees.

If you prefer tea, there's chai or matcha latte. Unlike most coffee shops, Mantra has a spacious interior fitted with a wooded floor, oversized yellow leather couches, and comfortable chairs, making it perfect for lingering. Another good news: Mantra is open on Sundays too.
