Asztalka cake shop contains the two important ingredients that I personally appreciate the most at a place: the adventurous historical location and the fine, honest food. The building is one of the few houses (probably 3) that survived the fire that destroyed the whole neighbourhood in 1810. This area, called Tabán, was once crowded by little cottages, wine cellars, novel-like winding streets and, of course, pubs full of cheerful locals.
Nowadays no one comes here to this huge green area for partying. However, you can still enjoy some chilling at the pretty tables of Asztalka with a nice piece of cake and of course a cup of coffee. I have done the same several times and was never disappointed. Here you’ll find great taste, natural ingredients and homemade sweets. The staff experiments is constantly experimenting to impress the customers, so you can eat here a brand-new dessert every week.
And if you have ever wondered what the home of a Budapest granny looks like, you will find out here. The cosy interior contains all of the typical equipment: tiny spoons, gilded rose-patterned cups, armchairs and of course lots of lace.
Reach Asztalka from Attila út, next to the church.
