This place has a history. Its predecessor is now called Europa cafe, but it was nationalized in the 1950s. Thee family of the original owner, as a compensation, received this tiny place. The ice cream and cakes should be tasted, the quality is very good.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
