Csiga Café is found in a corner building on Rákóczi Square. This location in itself would not make the place a true District VIII-style locale, but everything else does; for instance the slightly Eastern-influenced but still classic coffeehouse atmosphere, the walls that are decorated with paintings, and the stairway that is enhanced with wrought iron. The staff at Csiga is truly friendly, and their names are even found on the menu. You might see a few intriguing items among the decorations here if you look around, but we recommend to rather start the visit with a cappucino. After Budapest’s recent specialty coffee revolution, it is truly nice to spend only a few hundred forints on a flavorsome cup of black, however, if you would also like to eat something more serious you may have to dig a little deeper into your pocket. It is truly pleasant to pass some time at Csiga with a book or our laptop, and a glass of tasty syrup.
