Villa Bagatelle

You’ll need to leave downtown to experience this upscale, see-and-be-seen breakfast restaurant perched on the Buda Hills. Villa Bagatelle is located inside a nicely refurbished residential villa and takes less than 20 minutes to get to by public transport from Pest (you’ll likely be the only guest arriving by bus, judging from the Porsche-heavy parking lot). The food is predictable – egg dishes, frankfurters, breakfast pastries – but very tasty. There’s also a to-go bakery on the ground floor. Reservations are recommended; try to sit on the outdoor terrace in the warmer months.
