The Odeon-Lloyd Cinema, opened in 1937, also contributed to the rank of the neighborhood. The cinema hall at Hollán Ernő Street 7 was built by the plans of Béla Hosstätter and Ferenc Domány, using unique architectural solutions. In place of the cinema that once had a convertible hall now operates the Budapest Jazz Club, with its own café and restaurant.
Wooden furniture designed by Position Collective, green cups and lamps, a small terrace, an ever-changing coffee supply, cakes, Piadina, sandwiches. My Green Cup would do great anywhere in the world, but fortunately, it’s ours – and is one of the most popular coffee shops of the area. Its selection includes specialties like cascara, Karma Cola and fritz-kola.
Double Shot is also a strong competitor. Their specialty is the normale, or double-shot coffee, and they obtain their coffee from a small, Winchester-based English roastery called The Roasting Party. In addition to coffee, they also have cakes and sandwiches in their selection.
The team of Édesmindegy brings us desserts that are popular on an international level but somehow are not well known here in Hungary. They explore and experiment, and will start preparing for their fall “collection” soon. The story of each dessert can also be found on the page, so for example, we can learn that the story of the creamy eton mess with meringue pieces and strawberries originates from the award ceremony of a cricket match in England. The cake called black mamba sells as good as all of the others together, so the cheesecake with peanut butter and chocolate is definitely worth a try.
Oriental Soup House, located on Hollán Ernő Street, is one of the most popular soup restaurants in the whole city, with a slight bistro vibe. The interior is characterized by a lot of wood but rather strengthens a modern line, which is definitely not true for the kitchen: the owner isn’t willing to deviate from the original recipes by a single gram, and the guests definitely appreciate this. In addition to the traditional pho, we recommend tasting the duck version as well, which becomes even more intense by the afternoon, after simmering all day. The meat isn’t cooked but scalded. They work with a very short menu, and make only what they’re good at. From the few main courses, we recommend the bun cha (Vietnamese dish of grilled pork and noodle) and the beef pares (Philippine beef dish), and tapioca from the desserts.
