Start the day at 7:55 in trendy Buda

Yet another place has opened around sought-after Bartók Béla út, this one starting the day earlier, as its name suggests. Pocket-sized 7:55 on Lágymányosi utca offers delicious specialty coffee and breakfast snacks, ideal for the many nearby students or those working in the area, picking up a quality coffee and little cake before their lecture or day job.

IT graduate Tímea Klenk learned the confectionery trade as a mother while as a local, she noticed empty premises on Lágymányosi utca, a location which had had many functions in the past.

Timea’s goal was to provide quality takeaway coffee to nearby students, researchers and others working here, plus easy-to-carry cakes, sandwiches and juices. She hooked up with Nikolett Huszár, who had always been interested in coffee and learned the trade of barista.

Given the number of returning customers since 7:55 opened a couple of months ago, the two of them seem to have clicked.

In the tiny, newly renovated outlet, they try to make the most of the space and ensure the best quality in everything. The raw ingredients are provided by the Awaken roastery in Tata, the current choice being a lightly roasted Ethiopian variety.

This changes every two weeks, alternating between classic Brazilian, Colombian and more particular, citrusy, more fruity African coffees. The more adventurous can order matcha or chai latte.

Considering the trendy surroundings, prices are eminently affordable, espressos for 550 forints, cappuccinos for 690 and flat whites for 850. If you choose not take it away but drink in situ, hot drinks are served in pretty artisanal cups made by Kis Döníz, the seats within providing a view of the street.

It is also worth highlighting the juices (HUF 620), as they come from the Lápastó Co-operative, which employs people with disabilities, and are always made from seasonal fruit. You may want to ask Niki about the current flavours, as some combinations veer from sweet to something slightly more bitter.

Tasty sandwiches are offered for 890 forints, with pastries from Megszegett Ígéret, such as that old Hungarian favourite, the cocoa swirl (HUF 660).

In addition, you can select from Timi’s daily changing cake selection. The crunchy, nut-flavoured, croissant-shaped Pozsonyi kifli (HUF 550) hits the spot, while and the Nutella-and -white-chocolate cake (HUF 650) was made to satisfy.

The canelé (HUF 550), made by one of Tímea's confectioners, is soft, caramel in flavour and delicious.

At 7:55, they use the well-proven breakfast = coffee + cake combination in the correct fashion. Other hot drinks and filter coffees will soon be available – for both takeaway and sit-in, of course. And if you're here of a relaxed Saturday morning, you can take it a bit easier, the opening time being 7.55am.
