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 the place quickly gained a cult following. Today the company is one of the most recognized coffee brands in Budapest, operating a couple of branches across the city. The original location is this one, on Madách tér, smack in the middle of the fashionable and increasingly 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 found in Western Europe; for example, a small cup of filter coffee runs €3.
