Printa was one of the first design stores in Budapest to figure out that selling high-quality coffee alongside Hungarian designer products can be a winning combination. Think limited edition prints, clothes, bags, and purses made by the local designers - no tchotchkes here. Being good at what they do, and being located in the center of the trendy Jewish Quarter, it was only a matter of time before tourists would discover it. Accordingly, today they mainly cater to visitors with somewhat inflated price tags.
Nevertheless, there's plenty of cool stuff, and espresso-based specialty coffee. The coffee beans are sourced from Blue Bird coffee roastery next door. In the midst of all the shopping, don't miss the subtle-yet-imposing, Moorish Revival-style synagogue across the street from Printa, designed by the the famous Viennese architect, Otto Wagner.
