Zoska Reggeliző Kávézó

For the longest time, Budapest had only a few places specializing in breakfast food, even though we know what a difference a plate of creamy scrambled eggs can make to start the day off on the right foot. Part of this gaping void was filled in 2014 with the opening of Zoska. Zoska is a breakfast-all-day counter service restaurant nestled in a quite downtown backstreet, featuring a gleaming, shabby-chic interior. Their breakfast foods span from ham and eggs (€4) to frankfurters (€4), granola (€3), and bundás kenyér (€3), a Hungarian version of the French toast. A personal favorite is the toasted sandwich packed with ham, brie cheese, and blueberry jam (€3).

Zoska's staff can be a bit grumpy on some days, though, granted, the place can get mobbed by people in the mornings. If you can't find an empty seat, check Csendes Társ, located just around the corner, a cute outdoor-only café. Note that Zoska is closed on Sundays.
