The New York Cafe, first opened in 1894, was a center for cultural musings,
literature and conversation. It’s said that a particularly zealous cafe-goer stole the
keys to the cafe and threw them in to the Danube River so the cafe could be open for
twenty four hours a day, for everyone to enjoy.
That guy had the right idea. The New York Cafe is a wonderful place to spend the day.
Every part of the hall is covered with ornate decorations and paintings. And before you
have a second to take it all in, the waiter comes and whisks you away to your table.
If you want to know what heaven tastes like, then I recommend the chocolate raspberry
It’s a bit like the Plaza isn’t it? I think all that’s missing is a Hungarian Eloise
traipsing around the halls.
No reservations necessary for this gem. The New York Cafe is an absolute must for
anyone in Budapest!
