Delicious coffee, desserts and dainty fare in an equally elegant hotel
A Jaw-Dropping Neo-Baroque Icon
Another legendary Budapest café, established in 1894, this one will make your jaw drop with the sheer opulence of its heavily gilded, neo-Baroque decor (in fact, some have called it the world's most beautiful coffeehouse). Now part of the Hotel Boscolo, it backs up its elegant ambiance with a varied menu of coffees, other libations, light Hungarian and international fare and desserts (its ice cream sundaes are simply divine). One potential downside: you could feel like a real peasant here in tourist shorts and a T-shirt.
