Come for a coffee and admire the shear grandeur of this famous coffee house in the heart of Budapest

Central KavehazOne of the most famous of coffee houses in, as the name suggests, a very central location just right to provide after-shopping refreshment being just east of the famous walking street Váci útca. Originally a meeting place for intellectuals, it has, in it’s checkered history, also been a place for paprika buyers, university students as the infamous Eotvos Klub, and even video gamers when it was briefly called ‘Wizzards’. Thankful now the Kavehaz has been restored to it’s original glorious state complete with thonet chairs, marmor tables on cast iron legs, Persian carpets and English style leather club furniture with palm trees. The menu is varied, you are always guaranteed at least one gem of a dish if you look hard enough and prices are reasonable considering it’s tourist pulling potential. Staff are friendly enough and attentive though not so attentive if you choose the balcony seating area due to the stairs and the distance from the kitchens I would guess. A thoroughly authentic experience and definitely one to add to your ‘must do in Budapest’ list. Oh, and the coffee is pretty good too.
