Budapest cafés & pastry shops

new york cafe, budapest
VII. Erzsébet krt. 9-11

The New York Cafe is fabulous. Opened on October 23, 1894, the ground floor cafe of the palace was built in an eclectic style for the elegant gentlemen. Otherwise, the palace and the café were named after the American insurance company, New York Life Insurance Company, which was built by Alajos Hauszmann.

The history of more than 120 years of New York Café boils down to literature - and although it has been known as the "World's Most Beautiful Café" for many ages, systems and destiny, it has always been reborn - and has always been waiting for artists seeking comfort and coziness. and of course the common people.
This is no different today: the rebuilt, old-fashioned building in the 21st Century means what it once meant in a world more prone to beauty: the World's Most Beautiful Cafe in Budapest!

hadik, budapest
XI. Bartók Béla út 36, 1111

Hadik Café was in its heyday in the 1910s, when Karinthy, Kosztolányi, Déry, Móricz were regarded it as their living room. In 2010, the Hadik House revived two hospitality and cultural spaces in its original splendor: the classic Hadik Cafe, which pays homage to the spirit of its great predecessors, and distinctively the Szatyor Bar and Gallery, which redefines the bohemian world of the twentieth century. Both places share a strong and quality gastronomy with a cultural profile.
The Hadik and the Szatyor are the permanent home of literary evenings, art talks, musical productions and exhibitions that we intend to revive in the long-awaited café and cultural life, which was one of the strongest bastions in the Hadik era.
