Plenty of new-wave coffee shops line Pozsonyi Road, the main artery of Újlipótváros, a chic, middle class residential neighborhood. While you can’t go wrong with any of them, My Green Cup, part of the pioneering My Little Melbourne specialty coffee chain, stands out from the pack thanks to a tastefully modern interior with blond wood finishes, and an outdoor terrace that opens in the summer months.

The espresso-based coffees are prepared with a sleek Synesso machine (handmade in the U.S.); for the pour-overs they use a Kalita dripper. Besides coffee, there are also cakes, vegetable juices, and a couple of tea options, including matcha.
