My Little Melbourne & Brew Bar
When it opened in 2012, My Little Melbourne was one of the first specialty coffee shops in Budapest. A cult following quickly ensued, and My Little Melbourne has remained one of the most recognized coffee brands in Budapest (yes, notwithstanding the irony of it). It also helped business that they're located in the heart of Budapest's trendy and increasingly touristy Jewish Quarter.
Leveraging the rightful success, My Little Melbourne has since expanded to four locations across Budapest. Next door from the original venue, they opened a brew bar (My Little Brew Bar) that specializes in filter coffee and cold brews using V60, AeroPress, and French press equipment. The original location continues to make espresso-based coffees like cappuccinos and lattes.
Prices at My Little Melbourne are some of the highest in Budapest. With a latte or a filter coffee running €3, they're comparable to those in Western Europe.
