A compulsory tour for everyone with a sweet tooth on which we introduce you to Hungary’s coffee and cake culture by presenting Budapest’s most illustrious confectioneries. Decadent pastries, retro treats and the mysterious black soup.
A long long time ago, back when Hungary was still part of the Monarchy (and Austrians and Hungarians were not yet quarreling about who invented strudel) the coffee houses of Budapest were the places where the créme de le créme were rubbing elbows. They were also safe havens for artists who spent entire days looking for inspiration crouched over a steaming cup of coffee. Many of our traditional desserts were created in this golden era but not all – communism left its footprint as well and luckily enough, we still have those retro joints. On our Budapest Urban Treats tour, we’ll taste all these wondrous delights and worry about our weight afterwards.
Available languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and many more
