Loving the energy / excitement for Budapest on this forum. We will be going for our first trip to Budapest soon, have collected great info from Rick Steve's guidebook & this forum. Just wondering about breakfast options - we'll be staying off of Andrássay út, near the Opera House, on the side towards 7th District / Jewish Quarter. Any suggestions for breakfast places around here, and do places open early (6?). We would like to experience a typical Hungarian breakfast of course, as well as wouldn't mind having the Big Irish breakfast once if available, as we're there for a week.
We were in Budapest in April staying 1 1/2 blocks east of the Opera and Andrássay út. It's just a great location.
We were in an apartment and had the ability to cook our own breakfast. But because my wife and I are not big breakfast eaters, we bought a huge loaf of sliced bread at the local bakery and we ate toast and jelly. Bakery prices in the city are downright cheap.
We were amused to see all the construction workers eating a couple of huge slices of pizza for breakfast.
I stay in essentially the same location.
My top five for breakfast
Sorry, don’t remember the name of this place, but its at 13 Kiraly utca at the entrance into the Gozsdu Udvar (courtyard). Its on the left side of the entrance and has some pretty odd oversized art when you walk in the door. But the menu last time I was there was pretty traditional Hungarian breakfast.
What ever I purchased the night before from bakery on Kiraly utca at the corner of Vasvari Pal utca. https://www.facebook.com/palotai.pekseg/ which is an odd combination of bread and sweets bakery and pizza.
I don’t get up at 6 am on holiday. So I cant answer that question, but you can check the websites. Budapest is so good in the evening that I swap my mornings for longer nights…. Naaaaa, just lazy on holiday.
David, sounds like its time you buy a place to stay in town. Naaaa, that would be insane.
Thanks for the info - this is great and exactly what I was looking for. We are very much 'breakfast people' but we will take epic naps so that we don't miss the Ruin Pub Crawl / night life. :-) Thanks!
