Kelet Kávézó és Galéria – Culture & coffee

I am in love with books and coffee, so Kelet is a perfect place for me: it combines a little library with a quality coffee-house, spiced up with a bit of oriental atmosphere.

They have finely selected coffee beans, filter coffee, Turkish coffee, Dutch cocoa, loose leaf teas, cookies and Czech beers. Naturally, you can have your coffee with soy milk. The food is also quite uncommon: in the sandwiches and salads there are ingredients like fried catfish or piquant Indonesian peanut butter. Luckily now there are also some soups on offer: I can’t get bored with the coconut-milk-carrot-ginger soup!

On the first floor there are about 6,000 books, which are free to read or even to bring home if you leave another in its place, because the place is part of the take-one-leave-one book-exchange program. On the second floor there are some smaller tables, and this is the quieter part, a perfect place to study or work!

Besides being a cafe, Kelet is also a cultural meeting place: concerts, literature nights and presentations take place here at night.
