Á la Maison Grand

Á la Maison Grand is a bright impressive place, dressed in a minimal style with a hint of art deco. This fancy breakfast & brunch location has every type of breakfast on the menu, I mean EVERY KIND OF BREAKFAST! Different types of Eggs Benedict, avocado toasts, international breakfast plates, egg variations, sandwiches, waffles, pancakes, smoothie bowls and other healthy variations.

On my first visit, my avocado addiction won, so I tried their avocado toast with greens and poached egg. It looked gorgeous and its taste was also satisfying, but a bit more of avocado cream would make it even better. Maybe I’m too critical, but I’m just looking for the best avo toast 😉

On my second visit, I went for a special kind of Eggs Benedict called Bacon Benedict with Avocado Hollandaise #omnomnom 😛 Super tasty and beautiful!

However, their coffee isn’t the best one, don’t be disappointed, you can have great specialty coffee around this area, just walk a bit to Kontakt coffee or My Little Melbourne or read my specialty coffee guide to Budapest and discover more 😉

Fruccola

Fruccola is a healthy choice. Its big bright friendly interior reflects their ”fresh food” philosophy with herbs on the wall, wooden surfaces and colourful signs. Fruccola at Kristóf square has outdoor tables as well (Fruccola has other two locations: one in Arany János street and the other in MOM Park in Buda). Order at the bar, take your card and the friendly staff will bring your chosen dish.

Breakfast is available till 11 am on weekdays and all day long on weekends. Pick a healthy freshly pressed juice (the strawberry + orange + apple juice was amazing) with an omelette, vegan cooked breakfast, sandwiches, pastry, waffle or pancake and finish with a tapioca pudding or fruit salad.

I had on an omelette with spinach and goat cheese. The fluffy omelette was super tasty with the creamy goat cheese. My friends were also satisfied with their brunch 😛

Cserpes Tejivó (Cserpes Milk Bar)

Cserpes Tejivó has also many locations in Budapest with different “milky” design. This one close to Deák Ferenc square is decorated with milk neon signs, fluffy puffs, marble tables and owns a cute gallery, where more tables are available.

This stylish milk bar offers more than milk 😉 You can drink milkshake, lemonade, and other milky drinks and eat fresh pastries, sandwiches with creams, big portions of salads, hot sandwiches, fruity and natural yoghurts, chocolate and other sweets. My favourite combination is a scone with cheese and fruity yoghurt. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a warm super fresh pastry straight for the oven, those are best 😛

Prices:

  • Sandwich with Liptauer (cottage cheese with paprika powder) – 310 HUF
  • Scone with cheese – 210 HUF
  • Fruity yoghurt – 270 HUF

Keksz

Keksz is more likely a place for drinks, but they also offer breakfast. In the morning the service is a bit slower than during the night, but the waiters are friendly. In summer season many tables are situated outside, otherwise, you have to sit inside.

I ordered French toast with grated cheese and sour cream and a plate with 3 huge thick slices of bread arrived with cheddar cheese and sour cream. I couldn’t eat half of it. It was good, I just expected something else…

Prices:

  • French toast with grated cheese and sour cream – 1540 HUF
  • 4 eggs scrambled, bacon, red onion, fresh bread, and sour cream – 1370 HUF
  • Keksz English breakfast – 1750 HUF

Á table Madách Boulangerie – Pátisserie

You might guess from the name… The colours, decoration, as well as the menu of Á table, is inspired by France. You can eat Croque Madame, croissant, croissant sandwiches, other salty and sweet pastries, omelettes, pancakes and even more sweets. Enjoy it 😉

Breakfast is served from 7 am to 2 pm inside and on the small terrace outside. Their coffee isn’t the best, so if you want to have a quality coffee, visit My Little Melbourne next door.

Prices:

  • Pain aux chocolat pistache – 790 HUF

Juicy + Budapest Bagel

Juicy + Budapest Bagel offers more than juices and bagels. If the delicious bagels don’t sound exciting enough for you, ask for a healthy smoothie bowl, vegan cake or tapioca pudding. My chosen mango smoothie bowl wasn’t only healthy and beautiful but super tasty too.

Their fridge is filled with delicious cold pressed healthy juices in every colour and every taste combination. You have to choose one!

Be aware of the small size of the shop, where you can sit only on the window sill and in nice weather on the bench outside.

Prices:

  • Mango smoothie bowl – 1090 HUF
  • After party juice – 1190 HUF
  • Bagels – 1250 HUF

Sonkapult

Sonkapult is a small breakfast place with 4 tables inside. Reservation isn’t possible and have some cash because they don’t accept card. And now, the good news 😉

The friendly staff has a cute little dog hiding in the corner, who sometimes appears for some food, which tastes very good. I’ve tried only the avocado toast, which was served with thick slices of avocado, a big piece of salmon and a poached egg. The menu contained even more avocado options, but they prepare other toasts, French toast, pancake, omelette and fruity bowl too.

Prices:

  • Smoked salmon with avocado and poached egg – 2100 HUF
  • Flat white – 750 HUF

Szimply food

Szimply is not simple, but super cool breakfast place with only a few tables, so it’s mainly busy. I’ve tried 3 times to get in, but it was always full. Reservation isn’t available, so for the 4th time, we arrived at opening time. For a delicious breakfast, it’s worth to wake up early. Or arrive later and wait for a free table and in the meantime, grab a coffee at Kontakt coffee, next to Szimply and feel free to bring it with you.

You know the feeling when the food is so beautiful and you’re afraid to touch the masterpiece on your plate? This is your place! Szimply provides tasty and awesome #instafood with a seasonal changing menu. My avocado toast was very flavourful with avocado cream, egg, greens and seeds. Delicious and delightful!

Prices:

  • Avocado toast – 3000 HUF
  • Juice by Juiceline – 1190 HUF

Alma Nomad Bakery

This cute and cosy pastry shop waits for you only on weekends and on Friday for a late breakfast. Every pastry is baked in the small bakery by the friendly owners, so the scent is amazing.

Stunning sweet and salty pastries and cakes are displayed, very hard to choose. I asked for a coffee with an almond croissant and a pistachio frangipane lemon curd (I couldn’t resist…). The coffees and teas come in beautiful ceramics, perfect match with the natural design of inside and outside. Have a seat in the shadowy corner and enjoy your lovely pastries!

Prices:

  • Almond croissant – 790 HUF
  • Pistachio frangipane lemon curd – 750 HUF
  • Cappuccino – 550 HUF

Peet and the Flat white

Peet and the Flat white is located on Astoria. We choose the tables outside instead of the cosy interior (even if our table was reserved inside…) and fortunately, the traffic wasn’t disturbing.

The breakfast menu isn’t so long but has many options like omelette, french toast, English breakfast, peasant breakfast and granola. I tried out the Fresh breakfast, which included tasty lukewarm croissants with butter and jam.

If a place is called Peet and the Flat white, I had to drink flat white (I’d drink flat white if the name doesn’t contain the word…) and I didn’t regret!

Prices:

  • French breakfast – 990 HUF
  • Omelette with 3 toppings – 1890 HUF
  • French toast – 1590 HUF
  • Flat white – 850 HUF
  • Caffee latte – 700 HUF

Fekete

The coffee shop can be reached from a courtyard, where seats are waiting for you to enjoy your chosen drink in the warm season. During winter the cosy indoor area is there for you, just order at the bar and take a seat. Fekete can be crowded at the weekends, especially in the morning, but it’s worth waiting!

They offer delicious cakes and breakfasts like oatmeal, pastries, quiche, waffles and omelette. I went for the healthy eggs and orange juice menu and an additional flat white, of course. Fekete means black, so you can have good quality black coffee as well as other shades.

Prices:

  • Omelette – 1700 HUF
  • Flat white – 850 HUF

Zoska

Zoska is a cute place with a charming atmosphere thanks to the colourful post-its on the wall, bookshelves and a yellow bicycle outside (just to mention a few). On weekends it’s very busy, outside, inside, on the gallery, everywhere. I totally understand because the breakfast is very tasty, but the waiters aren’t always kind…

You can find sandwiches, pancake, porridge, scrambled eggs in their selection. I highly recommend the scrambled eggs menus with two chosen toppings and a coffee or juice. My fluffy eggs were topped creamy goat cheese and pear, the flavours totally matched. The coffee isn’t that good quality, so if you’re a specialty coffee fan, walk a minute to fekete or Budapest Baristas.

Prices:

  • Scrambled eggs menu with 2 toppings + coffee – 1450 HUF
  • Lemonade (small) – 550 HUF
  • Cappuccino – 550 HUF

Budapest Baristas

Budapest Baristas is situated between Astoria and Kálvin square, so if you need some silence, have a seat inside and watch the busy Károly street through the window. I’m sure you’ll find a free table thanks to the extra tables on the gallery. If you don’t care about the traffic, only about your yummy coffee and breakfast, sit outside on the green chairs and enjoy it.

They offer a breakfast menu with healthy and not so healthy, vegan, fruity, sweet and salty options. I had sweet potato toast with avocado cream, egg, bacon and salad, which was very tasty and a very big portion.

Don’t miss their quality coffee.

Prices:

  • Babu’s favourite – sweet potato toast with avocado cream, egg, bacon and salad – 2090 HUF
  • Flat white – 880 HUF
