Sarki Fűszeres is a cute café breakfast restaurant and specialty store in Újlipótváros, a fashionable residential neighborhood not far from the city center. Breakfast during the warm-weather months is the highlight here, when the trellised outdoor terrace has opened under a canopy of greens. The breakfast offerings feature all the usual suspects, including ham and eggs, frankfurters, and avodaco-slathered sandwiches.
After breakfast, be sure to roam the neighborhood, which is known for its modernist housing stock from the 1930s and 1940s. The most lavish of all is right across the street from Sarki Fűszeres, at #38 Pozsony út, and those that flank Szent István park and overlook the Danube.
