Where to Find the Best Breakfasts In Budapest
Dohány u. 27 // +36 30 204 5379
As I mentioned, seating is limited, so if you’re going for breakfast (especially if you’re in a group of more than four), I’d recommend you plan to arrive when they open at 8:30 am.

If you are craving something sweet be sure to check out their cinnamon rolls
or fruit filled pastries.

Although TOP Rum only opened in February of this year, the restaurant has quickly become a go to spot for weekend brunch in Budapest. Their weekend brunch menu offers everything from pancakes topped with vanilla ice cream to a steak sandwich on a brioche bun.
But the food is just one reason to dine here. The rooftop restaurant offers stunning views of Budapest. It was a real treat to look down at the city beneath us as we ate and sipped cocktails.
TOP Rum is a can’t miss Budapest brunch spot. I recommend the homemade waffles, bagels or baked savory egg dishes.

What started as a small espresso bar has now turned into one of the most popular breakfast spots in town. Here you can find choices such as breakfast brioches or croissants, bagels, home made quiches with small side salads, Croque Monsieurs, pancakes and more!
And yes, it’s still one of the best places in town to get a coffee. If you’re not a coffee lover, look for their cold pressed juices.

Á la Maison is one of the most gorgeous settings in Budapest for brunch. The setting is simple but elegant, and the staff is very friendly and will help you with menu selections.
The menu features many variations of the classic Benedict, including a Cajun Benedict, Goose Liver Benedict, and several vegetarian options.
You can also find avocado toasts, a full English breakfast, breakfasts for two and even a Filet Mignon breakfast.
If you’re craving a sweet start to your day you can find several varieties of French toast, pancakes, and Belgian waffles.

A slight departure from the gorgeous, trendy restaurants, this understated eatery serves a traditional Hungarian breakfast that might be one of the best hangover cures possible. The breakfast is made up of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh vegetables, local meats and cheeses and a shot of palinka, or local brandy.
If you’re looking for a lighter breakfast or didn’t have such a big night out the night before, Platos also has a French breakfast with yogurt and pastries, savory French toasts and several egg dishes.

Szimpla offers a fresh take on breakfast and brunch in Budapest. Originally a farmer’s market, the restaurant opened in 2013 to offer meals prepared with the same fresh and local ingredients sold at the market.
The restaurant offers breakfast all day long, but they also serve a “Weekend Farmer’s Breakfast” — a brunch buffet with all you can eat locally prepared cheese, sausage, homemade soups, fruit and more.
Szimpla also showcases emerging local artists and hosts local music. The place isn’t just a restaurant, it’s a part of the community.

Travel writer and owner of the blog. My work has been featured on Fodors, Eater.com, International Living, and Great Escape Publishing, among many others. My story? Nearly six years ago, I left my job at an Oklahoma City law firm and embarked on a journey around the world. At the time, I thought I would only be gone for 6 months, but the more I traveled, the longer my bucket list became. Flashpacker describes how I travel. Rather than traveling as the normal world wise backpacker and staying in hostel dorms, I prefer a more comfortable experience, and typically stay in private rooms, take Ubers instead of taxis, and now use a suitcase instead of a backpack. Foodie, on the other hand, describes one of the key reasons why I travel. I love to pick a central “base camp” and then explore the surrounding area, really immersing myself in the culture and interacting with the people, and enjoying and exploring the food of an area is an essential part of this experience.
