If like me, you are allergic to Starbucks but still like to enjoy good coffee-to-go, Fekete is your spot! Even on Sundays (one of the few third wave coffees open in the city on that day)! Might be a bit “hipsterish” but not too much! Right now Budapest is having a great “renaissance” of its coffee culture with spots such as Espresso Embassy (check my Espresso Embassy article) and many others. The coffee brewed at Fekete is equally outstanding.
In addition to its cute pop-up looking store on the “kis körút” (the small boulevard), Fekete offers a bigger space and a terrace in a lovely Budapest yard.
It’s the perfect place to get delicious thick lattes, special filtered coffees, fine teas and homemade cakes (as well as various yummy snacks, breakfasts and even fruit syrups). The owners also run the wonderful shop next door called “cukorka” and you can get some samples at Fekete too.
That was enough for this well-named café (Fekete means “black”) to become part of my (almost) daily ritual as I bike home via the bike path right outside their door!
Hats off also to the designers for their pure, trendy and elegant style, totally matching current Budapest requirements!
