Finally, there is a lovely little place right at Keleti train station! As I often travel from Keleti to visit family, I have long been wondering about why I haven’t found a place yet in the close area where I could grab something decious to take away or where I could sit down for a quick chat with friends before leaving Budapest.
Now it seems that these thoughts were not only mines and to our luck, they have been listened to and addressed! It’s a real gift for many of the regular passengers or locals of the area to get to choose from all the quality coffees, bakery products, cakes and to have a nice place to wait while still keeping an eye on the big clock on the building of Keleti.
All this is thanks to this spot, named Orient Café, with very kind and attentive staff, that is gladly recommending some personal favorites and who even speak perfect English with the visitors from other countries. The café is rather small including a tiny gallery and a mini terrace for the sunny hours. Its style resembles of an urban jungle, offering a happy little shelter from one of the busiest streets of Budapest.
