If you wish to have something very personal, sort of homemade in your day, I recommend a visit to Szabad Bisztró – delicious vegan dishes, local drinks and tasty coffee in a cozy space with funny little hidden details such as the strangely misspelled words in the menu. It’s all put together with the freedom of one’s thoughts creating a welcoming space where everything you can buy is plant-based and really tasty.
Szabad (Free in Hungarian) Bisztro is also associated with local initiatives. One of their current big goals is to be able to use the space in front of the bistro as a terrace instead of it being a parking place, for which they have created a petition. Normally when the weather is good, you may find an open van parked in front of the place for people to sit out on, which got then named “Nemterasz”, “Notterrace”. This year however they are working on opening another bar as well, which is probably why the terrace is not at its usual place, hopefully, it parks back soon.
What is more, they often support other causes as well such as the adoption of dogs, so sometimes as you sit on the colorful chairs of Szabad you will see some smiley faces of doggies to adopt or some works of a contemporary artist. Most of the time, the owner is there to serve you and it feels as if you were a guest at a kind neighbor or at a friend’s place.
