If you enjoy feeling like royalty while eating a delicious meal in one of the world’s most elegant restaurants, New York Café in Budapest is a place to be. This establishment has often been described as “the most beautiful café in the world” – and for a very good reason.
The Hungarian coffee house has been around for 125 years, and it served as a meeting spot for artists and poets before falling into disrepair following World War II. It was finally restored to its full glory in 2006, and 2,000 visitors flock inside on a daily basis to admire its Renaissance-style and delicious items on the menu.
You’ll have to make a reservation or wait in line for a while to secure your spot at the table of this classy café, but it will be worth it. The menu consists of traditional Hungarian dishes and desserts and comes with a rich selection of the most delicious cakes you’ll ever get to taste.
Sweet delights are this café’s specialty, but if you’re in the mood for burgers or pasta, you’ll also find them on the menu. Everyone who’s in the mood for full New York Café experience should consider ordering New York afternoon tea for two, which comes with a selection of finger sandwiches, mini cakes, bonbons and macarons, and several beverage choices.
