Right in the middle of the Madách complex lies Telep, a very cosy café in the new trendy afternoon-nightlife corridor connecting Deák ter to Gozsdu udvar (see the article on Gozsdu udvar) and the Jewish quarter.
You can’t miss it: it’s this place almost entirely covered by stickers (work in progress!), displaying a passion for longboards and that also has a couple of chairs outside to enjoy the lovely days.
Every time I go back to Telep I realize how much I missed out!
The thing about Telep is that you truly feel at home here, it’s the perfect place to work on your stuff during the day when you are like me – on the move permanently.
It’s not so big but if feels spacious and tables are just perfect for bigger laptops. Last time I could even borrow a charger from another customer! Ok, it’s a bit hipsterish, I reckon! And at night it gets crowded, with bar hoppers heaping up by the entrance outside the passage.
There is some nice background music, arty magazines in Hungarian (if you dare!) and good coffees. For those overlapping their lunch or dinner, Telep has pastries and bagels to feed you with.
Actually Telep is a living space, the upstairs serves as an exhibition and workshop space, a bit like the neighboring Printa.
