My Little Melbourne Coffee & Brew Bar

When it opened in 2012, My Little Melbourne was one of the first specialty coffee shops in Budapest so it quickly gained a cult following and today the company operates several locations across the city. The first one, on Madách tér, is smack in the middle of the fashionable and touristy-heavy Jewish Quarter.

The space is split into two, with the left side of the premises, Brew Bar, catering to fans of filter coffee with surgical precision using V60, Chemex, and AeroPress equipment. Espresso-based coffees like cappuccino, flat white, and latte come from next door. The only downside here is the price points, which are comparable to those in Western Europe; for example, a small cup of filter coffee runs €3.

To remain unbiased, I visit all places incognito and pay for my own meals and drinks. But this also means I must rely on readers to support my work. If you've enjoyed this article, please consider making a donation.
