Budapest’s Greatest People-Watching Cafés
By EVA HAMORI / 12 July 2015
If ‘People Watching’ is your thing, there’s no better place than Budapest to find a café where you can enjoy a cuppa coffee and watch the most interesting characters in the world go by. Sadly, while there were once 500 coffee bars at the peak of Budapest’s glory, many were destroyed during by war. The Soviets finished their demise by closing the rest down under communist rule. However, more recently the city has enjoyed something of a coffee renaissance, and the trend has been to re-establish Hungary’s coffee culture by rebuilding these historical cafés and restoring them back to their former glory.
