Sarki Fűszeres

Sarki Fűszeres is a tiny café and specialty store in Újlipótváros, a middle-class neighborhood in Budapest with an adorable character. Sarki Fűszeres is best for breakfast during the warm-weather months on its outdoor terrace under a canopy of greens. The breakfast offerings include expertly-prepared ham & eggs (€5), frankfurters (€5), and meat and cheese platters (€5). Inside, they sell high-end charcuterie, cheese, and olives, among other specialty food products.

After your breakfast, be sure to roam around the neighborhood, which has a bunch of hidden gems, including the tastefully modernist building across the street from Sark Fűszeres (#38 Pozsony Road) with a lavish marble staircase, and the serene Szent István park overlooking the Danube River.
