    One of my most favorite (and most popular) places for sweets is at Daubner Cukrászda Kft. Their Russian cream cake is so so good! Brace yourself for the line though. Worth it. A great coffee shop to check out is the Tamp & Pull Espresso Bar, cute little place and great lattes.

    We went to Budapest last September it was a great time to be there. I would say definitely don't miss having a beer (hofbrau was my choice) at Szimpla Kert. Have an afternoon wine spritzer or palinka at Csendes Társ Winebar & Garden. Traditional Hungarian food we really liked Rosé Restaurant. Gerbeaud's and Centrál Kávéház were both excellent French restaurants. For reference we stayed in district 7 and walked to all of these places. Also welovebudapest.Com was a great resource that was recommended by locals we met.

    Well, reading other tourists' "best" places what can I say, those are very touristy and do not serve the best Hungarian food. Besides, do you go to Budapest to eat at "French" restaurants? They serve overpriced food targeting tourists. Enough said. Trust a real Hungarian who grew up in the city to give you the best list. My can't miss restaurants in order:

    1. Menza - very reasonable, retro 60's decor, great authentic Hungarian food, also very central location in the city. Menza

    2. Dunapark Café - built in 1935, Art Deco decor, off the beaten track, a little pricier than Menza, but nice, authentic Hungarian food.

    3. Két Szerecsen bistro - pricy but worth it. 2-floor homely venue with outside tables, serving tapas-style plates, Hungarian dishes & breakfast.

    Our favorite meal in Budapest was at Fülemüle Étterem - traditional Hungarian/Jewish food in the heart of the Jewish neighborhood. Try the cholent, a bean and meat stew-like dish served in a skillet. Our review here: Traditional Hungarian Jewish Food in Budapest
