Visited the cafe in January, the weather was cold, but the atmosphere inside was pleasant. Cool place, quiet and cozy. Good food and tea. Try turkish sweets.

Worst meal of Budapest. Terrible staff and food was below average. Salads were not fresh. Avoid. Better places to go!

After a long day of walking and sightseeing the Kara Cafe was a welcome site to see when we needed coffee and cake. Able to sit in or outside the cafe was a great place for a drink and a snake. The baklava was very tasty as was the cheese and ham toasties.

This place is really not much to look at from the outside, but inside is a cute Turkish cafe. The hot chocolate is thick and creamy, and they have a great selection of fresh cakes and baklava. Very convenient location at Hero square.

Easy to find and to have a drink close to Heroes` Square, but there are more stylish and same price cafés just around the corner. Middle-quality product. When entering, you expect a cosy, romantic atmosphetere where you can have a good talk with your friend. On 3 occasions over half a year we had the same experience: the waitresses are... More
