Fodor's Review

Somebody's clever vision of a 1970s-style communist-era cafeteria right in the heart of trendy Liszt Ferenc tér is a big hit. Details like retro table settings, orange and olive green Formica, and the very worst in communist lighting design miraculously come together to give this place a cool hipster vibe. Quirky dishes like homemade Hungarian soups served with cereal croutons get a giggle from most diners, and greasy childhood treats like langós (fried dough) get reinvented and stuffed with chicken and mushrooms. In spite of the grooviness, there's good old-fashioned Hungarian comfort food here and pretty attentive, non–communist-era service. Check out the Kádár-era soft-drink list at the bar, and try meggy marka, a surprisingly refreshing sour cherry soda.
