"Móka" in Budapest drew my attention instantly with its modesty mixed with fun & eclectic coziness. Perfect place to meet locals from the neighborhodd!

It got the longer version of its name, Módszertani Kabinet from the board above its door kept there from communist times, before the system change. However, the short version, Móka, simply means fun. Móka’s character drew my attention instantly with its modesty, mixed with its eclectic coziness, friendly staff, and very fair prices, especially as compared to prices on the Buda side.

For the sunny times, there are a few benches and tables to sit outside while drinking your fröccs (soda and wine) or having a good meal. Besides the drinks, Móka serves delicious breakfast, lunch as well as daily food. It's mostly local guests living nearby who come here, but it also attracts students and people with a generally good vibe. It is very small and is located on a not very well-known street in Buda.

Móka is one of my favorite spots to hide from the fast pace of the city and to naturally feel like I'm at home with some kind people I only half-know around. If I get a chance to come here early for a good breakfast, it is certain that the day will go on balanced and happy. I especially like their ever-changing biscuits besides their coffee.

GoodSpirit Whisky Bar – The perfect evening out

Their gin-based signature cocktail is my absolute number one. It's called “Ramos Gin Fizz” and it’s pure magic in a glass. It never, ever disappoints.
