Canapé is an odd place. Located just off the Lehel subway exit, it is surrounded by relatively upscale and fancy shops and restaurants. This tiny bistro and deli store however has remained decidedly down-to-earth and old-fashioned.
The interior is scarce, but the food is just awesome: Several types of roasted meat, salmon, antipasti of all sorts. And I’m talking antipasti that can’t be found in any supermarket, like squash or parsnip (I think that was parsnip…). You can basically make your sandwich, which is 4-5 Euro apiece. For about the same you can also order warm meals, usually involving pasta and some seasonal ingredients.
I used to work right around the corner and come here almost daily. When I came back here after being abroad for over a year, almost nothing had changed. The elderberry lemonade is dead cheap and delicious (0.90 Euro a glass) and Canapé is still flocked by the many people working in that area. So it’s not uncommon that the always friendly owner runs out of bread around two in the afternoon, meaning it’s absolutely advisable to go there early!
