Jacques Liszt

The master baker who runs this artisan bakery used to work as a lawyer in a bank, and then turned his life around under the spell of a TV-programme. After closing time you can see the bakers at work, making all the bread and pastries from additive-free ingredients. The name Jacques Liszt in Hungarian means ‘a sack of flower’.

For Gergő Fekete it all started with a blog (in English) about his hobby – baking. Now he runs a lovely and busy split-level bakery and cafe, where everything is prepared on the spot. You’ll find some of the tastiest sandwiches in town here, and good coffee made with their own beans.

A lovely breakfast place and bakery in one, very close to the Central Market. On offer: among other things, a variety of pastries, excellent coffee, and some craft beers. At lunch time they serve a daily soup with sandwiches, and all day long you can order super fresh milk from the owner’s very own cows.

Három Tarka Macska

‘Three Mottled Cats’ is a busy artisan bakery on the corner of a street in the middle-class neighbourhood New Leopold Town. It opened in 2017, and was an instant success, even though there are lots of other bakeries nearby. On weekend mornings it’s very hard to find a spot to sit and eat a sandwich because it’s so crowded, but at any other time this is a peaceful place with a nice décor.

This nice cafe is housed in a villa from the 1920s, with a bakery on the ground floor. It used to be a red lamp house in the 1990s. The place was renovated and is now run by a German-Hungarian couple, who personally watch over the quality of their goods. Everything is made by hand here, without the use of unnatural additives.
