Massolit Books & Café in Budapest

Massolit is a charming hideaway in the center of Budapest's old Jewish Quarter. The space combines an English language bookstore with a café. Accompanied by a cup of tea and a page-turner, you can easily spend hours in the quiet nooks and cozy atmosphere without even noticing it. That is, if you manage to find an open seat, which is rare during peak hours, ever since international students from the Central European University discovered Massolit. If you want to be left alone, unwind at the outdoor patio in the back during the warmer months. For those interested in Hungarian literature, most Hungarian classics are available in English on the shelves here.
