#1: STIKA Budapest — $$$$$
Many places have tried to emulate the “hip café” concept in Budapest. But STIKA, this pocket-sized space in District 7, is the first to get it exactly right.
#2: Sarki fűszeres — $$$$$
Sarki Fűszeres is a closet-size, partially outdoor café along the upscale Pozsonyi út and one of the best kept secrets in Budapest.

The pre-war marble well in the courtyard is one of those Budapest surprises behind sooty facades, and definitely the place for your morning coffee at Fekete.

Before Zoska, Pest didn't really have places specialized for breakfast food, even though we all know what a difference a plate of well-prepared scrambled eggs can make.
#5: Szimply — $$$$$
Szimply is a closet-size breakfast-all-day place in the charming cobble-stoned inner courtyard of a pre-war building.
#6: Gerlóczy Cafe — $$$$$
Gerlóczy Café is a French-stlye café/bistro tucked away in an unexpectedly serene and charming corner in the middle of downtown.
