We nearly missed it, the street was so tiny and inconspicuous.
They had some cool lamps and the shop was really warm. I was almost steaming, from the cold outside.
People are chatting in German, and La Cabra coffee decorates the shelves.
They’re sporting ample amounts of coffe related stuff actually. Mocca pots, scales, Kruve sifters, “Standart” books “standing for the art of coffee”, V60s and filters. You name it. As well as Nitro Cold Brew on tap, which I wished we’d tried. It will have to be for next time.
They also had a “no sugar, no “extra hot”, no sirup, just good coffee” type of policy, which was written on the wall and tables.
The cappuccino made me think of fish… Which was a really strange flavour. Surprisingly tasty, but odd. Maybe a very special coffee bean. Chris said his espresso had a dark chocolate medisinal bitternes to it.
All of the staff are playing with a baby behind the counter. Teaching them young, I like it. They seem Scandinavian to me, I dont know why, it’s hard to put a finger on.
The bathroom door is labeled “Good boy” / “Good girl” and the outside of the door has “Knock knock…” on it, while on the inside it says “…who’s there?” HAHAHA
They’ve painted the pipes in a turquoisey blue, and it makes for a striking contrast to the white walls. Such a smart and easy way to give the shop an eye-catching feature the visitors will remember. We definitely refered to it as “that one with the blue pipes” a few times.
They have a sibling relationship with a bistro across the yard, called Szimply Food. Order food there and eat in the coffee shop, or order coffee in the coffeeshop to drink in the bistro. Perfect.
I definitely recommend going here! My favourite in Budapest and ends up on my very prestigious All Time Favs.
Final verdict: 6/6 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
