Arany Palacsintázó

Oh my God! This place is the paradise itself! Okay, I admit most people think pancakes can be done at home easily but you got to try this place.

 It can be found near the entry of Csepel Művek, next to a small pub. It doesn’t look too promising from the outside, but I can guarantee that if you go inside you will experience something special. Csepel and Its surrounding is not the part of the city centre, It’s rather on the edge of the City. The center can be reached by car in 20 minutes from here, and not much longer with public transportation either. There is a big parking place in front of the restaurant, and it’s about 5 minutes walk from the local train station.

You can enjoy one of the best pancakes in Budapest also on the terrace of the restaurant. The service is fast, friendly and honest. At dinner time or in rush hours they inform you about the waiting time, so you can decide whether you want to wait for it or look for another place to eat. (I’d definitely wait for it.)

 Let’s talk a bit about the menu and the dishes, I bet you have been waiting for it already. There are 135 sweet or salty pancakes to choose from, or you can also order fried meat, if you are in the mood for it.

I chose a sweet pancake, but a very good friend of mine ordered a salty pancake speciality, which she always does. By the way she showed me this place.

 The quantity of the dishes are huge, the food is tasty, good service and the price is rather cheap. It is very rare these days, that you find something outstanding for a decent price.

Budapest Baristas

Which word comes to your mind if you think about breakfast? What is the most important thing when you wake up?

Many would say coffee or a delicious scrambled eggs, pancakes. Different habits, different tastes. That’s what we do. But what we agreed was to share this experience with you.

Our next step was the restaurant, called Budapest Baristas. It is possible you heard about this restaurant before, because they are pretty famous. It is located on the Museum Boulevard, which is a huge challenge to reach by car. The number of parking spaces is limited, the restaurant does not have an own car park, and it is only possible to find a good place in the surrounding streets, and of course you need to pay for that. So I would recommend you choose public transport if you want to try this place. It is located between Astoria and Fővám square, only 5 minutes walking.

We can say positive and also negativ things about the place. In our opinion size of the restaurant is good. It is possible to have meal outdoors and indoors. And the tables on the gallery expand the small place inside. We chosed an inside place at the window, and it was very pleasant. With the coming good weather, many would choose the outdoor option, but the noise of the cars gives you a very bad eating experience.

The menu is extremely varied, I was almost lost with coffee specialties. Everyone can find breakfast and coffee that suits their taste. If you have any Food Intolerance, do not panic, I’m sure you can find something.

Unfortunately, the pictures on the restaurant’s website and on the facebook page did not reflect the reality. Personally, we were not satisfied with the amount and taste of food. Although it is subjective, so try it out too.

We found it expensive.

Try it out, because this place has a really good feeling.

Briós

We decided again: let’s have a breakfast. This time we choosed the restaurant, called Briós, which can be easily reached from the Jászai Mari square, that is on Pozsonyi Street 16. If you want to approach the place by car, unfortunately there are only a few parking places nearby, but you need to pay for parking, like everywhere in the city.

 We have discovered from outside, that we are now in a much more spacious place than the other places what we have tried before. There is also possible to dining out, like in many other places.  In a relatively quiet and little street we can start our day without a doubt. Unfortunately, we were looking for an inside table in the cold weather.

 It was difficult to decide between a large number of tables, but we choosed one upstairs.

Pleasant music and cozy lighting filled us with a very good feeling, but this is due to many Christmas decorations and lights already fitted.

Old advertising posters gave a retro feeling for the place. The waiter came with the menu almost immediately and with some of his stuff tried to make our rainy morning better. It was difficult to make a decision, but eventually we choosed:  french toast filled with ham and cheese served with sour cream and a Hungarian menu. The meals are abundant and delicious, in the Hungarian menu you can find sausage, grey cuttle salami, liver pate, spicy cream cheese, fresh vegetables and bread. We got  the food fast, we did not have to wait a long time. On the menu, the fruit salad was very tempting, so we choosed that as a “dessert.” We waited a lot, and we were disappointed because our little oversized salt quantity and composition did not meet our expectations.

The restaurant offers card and cash payments, we paied 6000 Ft.( around 20$ or 18 Euro)

Bubō

As we know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and  we discovered a new place again. We choosed Bubo on Jászai Mari square, which is easily accessible by public transport. We would not recommend it by car because of bad traffic and few parking places. The restaurant seems simple and small from outside, but we entered into a bigger space. Outdoor and indoor dining is also possible, we recommend taking a seat inside. We sat down at a small table next to a wall.

Our choices

We got the menu almost immadiately, but it was difficult to make a decision because of the wide variety. Finally we would be able to decide what we want for breakfast, our chooises were: Croque Bubó extra and Paté Breakfast. During the short waiting period we discovered a famous hungarian chef in the restaurant as a costumer, so we were hopeful about meals. The simplicity and the pleasant atmosphere of the place made a good experience for coffee and for a perfect conversation.

 We have met friendly and helpful waiters, so we were completely satisfied with the quality and the speed of the service.

After a relatively short wait, we got the food. The patés, eggplant cream and feta cream with chives  were just perfect for us. In our opinion, the amount of bread is not enough for a breakfast, so we asked for an extra dose.

Overall, we paid 4,500 Ft(around 15$ or 13 Euro) for breakfast menus and drinks, which we are very pleased with. The restaurant also offers card and cash payments.

Kuglóf cafe

Our next step was the Kuglóf cafe at the heart of the city. It is located in Piarista alley, opening from Váci street, away from the bustle, we met only some passerby. Unfortunately, due to the size of the cafe, we did not find any tables inside for breakfast, so we sat down at the outside tables, where we could protect ourselves against cold with blankets. Sitting at the table, we found ourselves in a beautiful spot, looking at the Elisabeth Bridge. Although we told them that we would like to have breakfast at the outside tables, we asked for the menu after 10 minutes, speeding things up. There are lots of delicacies on the menu, it was difficult to decide what to order. Beside simple meals, there are more complicated dishes, we prefered the latter one. Because of the complicated dishes we set big expectations, but unfortunately we were disappointed.

 In 5 minutes we received the drinks and after a short time we could start eating. Unfortunately we did not like the taste of dishes, but we got enough food for breakfast. Our choice were: Poached eggs served with hollandaise sauce, smoked salmon and fresh salad on toast with avocado cream; Wrap with cheddar sauce, 2 scrambled eggs and avocado cream; and Spinach parmesan chili omelette with French bagette.

When we were paying the bill we were informed that we could choose from new menu, so they liked our positive and negative comments about the flavor and composition of dishes.

Kuglóf is dog-fancier cafe, that is rare in Budapest.

Catch Burger&Breakfast

The place we tried for the first time was the restaurant, called Catch Burger&Breakfast(1134 Budapest, Váci út 49.). This little place for the first sight seems like that it would be the part of the officebuilding, but it has a very friendly interior. As we entered we have got an openarmed welcome.

We arrived after the usual breakfast wave, at 9 o’clock. We did not have to wait so long to order. As we were waiting we noticed the freshly baked prasties, fresh sandwiches and the menu. (Both of us did choose something almost immediately. )Choosing is very easy in our opinion because everyone can find on the menu something to your liking.

What we asked for, it was made in  15 minutes. To talk about the food, we choosed omlett with bacon and sausage with english mustard and horseradish.

The place is very cosy with pleasant background music. Cleanness provides you a perfect dining experencie.

You can take-away your coffee or consume it at the place. After the 9. coffee the 10. its a gift.

The consumers feedback is very important for the place, after paying the bill we have got a lot of questions about meal. Prize value is satisfactory, we payed 4.550 Ft(around 15$ and  13Euro)for the wonderful dishes and beverages.

We encourage people to organise meetings here or just to spend nice time with your family or friends. In good weather you can eat outside or they grant blankets in colder weather.
