Find your place by the huge windows of Franziska near Batthyány tér, amid the woven cushions and armchairs, inviting you to cosy up away from the winter cold, and tuck into one of their colourful, healthy and nutritious dishes. We reckon this one of the best places in town for girls to do breakfast around the holidays, starting the day lightly in preparation for the onslaught of traditional bejgli cake and fish soup later. Of course, there’s room for the little bohemian touch provided by a glass of mimosa or a Hugo Spritz.
Fresh, preservative-free domestic ingredients here come with a wonderful downtown panorama. In addition to your bright green smoothie or French toast with extras, you can gaze over at Március 15 tér or prominent Váci utca. You can also choose an organic egg breakfast or sample owner Dóra’s French pastries. It’s a great place, not only to relax with friends but to bring your Mum, for example.
One of the peculiarities of the area around trendy Bartók Béla út is that several generations dovetail in friendly communal fashion, somehow without disturbing each other. Champagne brunch is just such a specific genre in which everyone can find the part they love, ideal for all. And at MITZI, this mood is even more condensed, allowing you to feel the simultaneous sensation of zest and relaxation at the start of the day, and the joys of both feasting and moderate snacking.
Everything hangs together at this Nordic sourdough paradise, where you can spend the day in an undemanding yet infinitely promising environment, from a hearty breakfast to coffee and laptop hours to afternoon gatherings of friends.

Start the day with a discerning, rustic and healthy dish.
A flashy barista in a bow tie, an all-day breakfast and even heartier dishes await on Dob utca. Our favourite is the wide range of Eggs Benedict, Benny, where you can choose from luxury variants such as Royal with salmon and caviar or Beef Benny with Angus beef. This apart, there are bagels, French and Viennese breakfasts, countless exciting dishes and a wide selection of wines.
At this familial living space on Margit utca, near the Ottoman-era Tomb of Gül Baba, you can relax in the cheerful yet swish environment of 'Turkish Honey'. The sunny corner shop is not only worth visiting in the summer, when you can sit on the shaded terrace, but also in winter, when you can spend time over a couple of warm, colourful dishes, not least in the delicatessen. Starting the day here in good company, with delicious food, really isn’t a bad idea at all.
As the Brót Bakery is also located in this elegant villa in leafy District XII, you can enjoy breakfast on the hoof or take your time in the restaurant on the first floor.
