Mantra Specialty Coffee Bar

Mantra is a specialty coffee shop in Budapest, located on a quiet downtown backstreet 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 for their filter and espresso-based coffees. AeroPress, Chemex, V60, and Gina are just some of their available equipment.

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.
