Mantra Specialty Coffee Bar
Mantra is a specialty coffee shop in Budapest located on an atmospheric downtown backstreet lined with trees and wrought-iron street lamps. Ironically, this tranquil area is just a block away from the tourist-heavy Váci Street. Mantra has an especially broad range of filter coffees made with AeroPress, Chemex, V60, and Gina equipment. The light-roasted coffee beans come from Ethiopia, Brazil, and Honduras. There's chai or matcha latte.
Unlike many Budapest coffee shops, Mantra has a sizeable and well-furnished interior fitted with a wooded floor, yellow leather couches, and comfortable chairs, making it a perfect place for lingering. Another good news: Mantra is open on Sundays, too.
